Serious Collectors Win Big at Jim Kelly / Kelly for Kids Gala

Serious memorabilia collectors were treated to something special at the 25th Annual Jim Kelly Kelly-for-Kids Gala last night. Unlike (fewer and fewer, thankfully) charity events, this gala's sponsor, Jim Kelly, took the added step of registering each auctioned collectible at Collectors Proof. Virtually every piece was awarded to bidders, and nearly 100% of the auction winners stopped by the Collectors Proof kiosk to provide ownership information, preserving the authenticity of each item.

Do you have a favorite charity that frequently auctions off memorabilia to help fund its mission? They can set themselves apart, boost inventory value, attract serious collectors, and drive greater giving simply by registering items at Collectors Proof prior to the event.

This event was incredible, and the fact that Jim and his organization has been successfully running it for 25 years shows his dedication to the cause. It's great to know that from this point forward, anyone who purchases an item from the auction will have a permanent connection to not only Jim, but the Kelly for Kids foundation.
