Sean Taylor Auction and Tribute Evening

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

Last night I attended the Sean Taylor tribute auction at The Original Steakhouse. The crazy thing about last night was that I had no idea of what to expect going in. My wife and I showed up and the first thing I saw were the three cars parked out front that were up for sale. It's crazy for me to think that at one point those cars were Sean's...

Once we were inside the place was filled with some familiar faces and some not so familiar faces. Its crazy to me how even in death someone can connect so many different people. From the fans to family and everyone in between. The cool thing about the group that gathered last night wasn't how we were connected but why we were there, to support Sean's daughter.

The setting couldn't have been better. If you haven't been to the Steakhouse, they have about twenty projector screens surrounding the entire bar area and they all played Eric Espada's photo montage of Sean for most of the night. Which if you haven't seen you need to check it out before you read any further. Also shown on the big screens that brought a tear to many an eye including mine was this

After some mingling Robert Bassam, founder of Eastern Motors opened up the auction to those in attendance. Among the items were those listed online and also a few available to those in attendance. The best one (also most expensive) was a framed autographed Sean Taylor jersey. If I had 25K extra that thing would definitely be on my wall right now but, it went to the owner of the establishment instead.
"It's not about the money, it's for the family," said Osama El-Atari, the owner of the restaurant, who bought the jersey. "It's for the family and the estate." 
Reading things like that reiterates why the evening was so successful. When all was said and done over 100 thousand dollars were raised, all of which will be going to the Sean Taylor Estate Trust fund.
