Get your very own Cosby sweater
The auction will run from June 2 to June 18, with opening bids starting at $5,000 per hideous sweater. It's all for a good cause, though. Hello Friend donates books to underfunded schools and helps train teachers, among other things. Ennis Cosby was studying to be a teacher at the time of his death, and his family wanted to continue his work.
I wonder how high the bids will go? Will the highest bidders be interested in the sweaters themselves, or will they buy them out of support for the foundation? I'm very curious to see how this auction turns out, and I'll be keeping an eye on it this June. I've seen the sweaters in question, and they are trademark Cosby sweaters--polka dots, squiggly lines, geometric shapes, etc. What's not to love?
