I delivered and hung it before the party (I could not attend, bummer). It looked great amongst the photography, paingings and sculpture. At 10pm, I get a text message saying my bike wheel boob is up to $205, at 10:30 closing auction price was $250 - top seller! ALL the money goes to Enhancement of Morro Bay.
Exerpt from the invitation:
"Yes, it's that time of the year! Mark your calendars for November 7th, 2009 and please join us for:
BOOZE 4 BOOBS 4
Mayhem and I are proud to host the fourth incarnation of our annual event to raise money and awareness thru a silent auction of community-member donations of art celebrating boobs in a variety of styles. This year we will also be holding a raffle for one of the donated art pieces -- so if you don't feel you can make the event, or can't bid your rent on a picture of someone's boobs [even for charity!], please help support the event by purchasing a $2 raffle ticket and get the chance to take something FABULOUS home!
The one-night event raised a total of $4240.
$1905 through the event, an anonymous donor gave $1200 and this person's company matched that donation with $1135, Stunning!
The losing bidder commissioned two more bike wheel boobs. I added nipple rings (chrome headset spacers) on this pair:

Ok, This is cool...
I have always been fascinated by train travelers since I was a kid and saw Emperor of the North Pole and read books on Hobo signs. I'm hoping to see this site grow with more documentation. I would have never found this had the person not starred one of my tallbikes as his favorite. Cool huh?
