Organizers Say Roger Maris Charity Auction Items Stolen

Posted: Updated:

Over 100 charity auction items were taken from the Roger Maris Celebrity Golf Tournament Auction. Organizers say the storage facility where the items were kept was burglarized last month and learned the items were taken earlier this week while preparing for this weekend's event. Overall, one hundred eleven items were taken. A majority of them were autographed baseballs from hall of famers. Organizers say those items alone would have raised almost four thousand dollars.



Auction Coordinator Jerry Rostad says, "I mean our charity organizations, the Roger Maris Cancer Center, Hospice of the Red River Valley and Shanley High School. Those are the ones that the revenue is not going to be there for them."

The auction was still held today with lesser items.
