ATLANTA (AP) - The nation's tanking economy didn't stop the
Carter Center from raking in more than $800,000 during an auction
in Port St. Lucie, Fla.
A painting by former President Jimmy Carter drew the largest bid
of $100,000 last weekend. The only baseball in the world signed by
five U.S. presidents - Gerald Ford, Carter, George Bush, Bill
Clinton and George W. Bush - went for $82,500.
A fly fishing trip with the Carters sold for $80,000, and a
handmade Manuel Rodriguez classical guitar drew $65,000.
The money raised by auctioning more than 100 high-end items will
benefit international humanitarian work done by The Carter Center
in Atlanta. The auction raised $1.2 million last year.
