WPSU to Auction Off Signed JoePa Glasses
Local public media outlet WPSU will be auctioning off an autographed pair of JoePa’s signature glasses at its Connoisseur’s Dinner and Auction on February 20th. The event, which will be held in the Alumni Ballroom at the Nittany Lion Inn, is the place to be if you want to rub shoulders with the elite of the local public broadcasting community. In order to bid on and possibly win the famous specs however, you need not attend. Bidding will begin online this Monday for the glasses as well as for a signed Derek Jeter baseball bat. In the past, WPSU has auctioned off other JoePa memorabilia including autographed khakis and socks, but this is the first time his iconic glasses will cross the auctioneer’s stand.
If you want to go to the dinner and help local public broadcasting, be prepared to pay for it. Tickets are $180.00 per person and can be purchased here. Though, I suspect that if you are in the market for JoePa’s glasses, $180 is small potatoes.
