Hoboken Robin Auctioned Off Last Night at Texas Arizona for $20!

Update 4-19-2012: Last night Hoboken Robin was auctioned off for Charity at Texas Arizona. The winning bid was $20, a paltry amount for a Hoboken Superhero. Hoboken Robin ever the good sport about such things stated that based on his estimates the event probably easily raised over $5,000. That is good news but apparently the commodity prices of Robins has hit a downturn.


Original Post 4-18-2012: Ladies- Depending on your love of lower price brand named fashion goods, this opportunity may just have you going Gucci Gucci goo! It turns out Hoboken Robin aka Rory Chadwick, owner of consignment shop Midtown Authentic is offering himself up for tonight’s Bachelor and Bachelorette Auction tonight at Texas Arizona located at 76 River Street. The event is for a good cause and proceeds go towards Hoboken Relay for Life which is engaged in the battle against Cancer. The event starts at 7pm with the auction starting at 8 pm. Rory will be dressed as Hoboken Robin for the Auction.

Location: Pier A Park in Hoboken, NJ.

Relay For Life is a fun-filled event designed to bring together those who have been touched by cancer in our community. At the event, we create awareness and raise money through donations to aide the American Cancer Society in its mission to find a cure, assist those who have been touched by cancer, and empower individuals to fight back. It is a time to remember those lost to cancer and celebrate those who have survived. We honor survivors during the morning Survivors Lap and remember those we have lost during the beautiful Luminaria Ceremony at dusk. We celebrate life, friendship and a chance to work together toward a cancer-free future. By joining together as volunteers and donors, our efforts help the American Cancer Society strive toward a future where cancer doesn’t take the lives of our friends and family.
