The online auctions raise money that will then go towards food for recently unemployed. Also elderly and vulnerable due to the coronavirus crisis will have food donated. All of the donated money from winning bidders pays for the food and distributes it so people don’t go hungry. There are two items of interest to car enthusiasts so far. They are retired quarterback Eli Manning’s 2012 Corvette convertible and rapper Meek Mills’ 2018 Rolls-Royce Phantom.
