On Friday night, a woman in Alabama won an auction that would allow her to have dinner with Sarah Palin. The woman in Alabama won the auction for $63,500. Cathy Maples of Huntsville will be able to take up to 4 guests with her too. It won’t be just the former governor of Alaska and the VP candidate, but it will also be her husband Todd. The proceeds from the charity auction will go to Ride 2 Recovery, an organization that supports veterans through cycling programs.
“She is, quite simply, one of the most talked-about people in the U.S.,” stated the auction. “Value: Priceless.”
Maples owns a defense contracting company and fully supports the military. Maples said that she would love to see Palin as the future President. The opening bid for the auction was $25,000 and about 61 bids were made. Palin has the right to bow out if the winner fails to meet standards of suitability and professionalism based on their background. The dinner will last about 4 hours or less.
