2008 Domestic Violence Project Auction

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Thunder home clubhouse manager Tom “Tonto” Kackley over the past few seasons.

He’s got a lot of experience in the game, and has got some great stories to tell.  I can’t begin to remember how many times it was myself, maybe another reporter or two, and Tonto and Tony Franklin in the manager’s office having some great conversations about baseball and a variety of other topics…my belief that Joe Namath isn’t a Hall of Famer, for example.

In any event, Tonto is holding his annual charity auction to benefit the Domestic Violence Project.  Unfortunately, it’s a cause that’s very near and dear to him, as his wife’s sister would have turned 40 years old last Sunday were it not for a disgusting act of domestic violence.

Over $5,000 was raised last season, and hopefully more money can be raised this season.  To view the items available, please follow THIS LINK.

Many great items are available for auction, including a bat that Reggie Jackson signed during one of his trips to Trenton, and game used items from many of your favorite Thunder players, including Austin Jackson.

Items will continue to be posted through Saturday, so please keep checking back to see if there’s something you’d like to add to your collection, or possibly pick up for a great holiday gift for a friend or relative.
