Goodness this morning was a frenetic bidding war over Lucy Lawless and her art. It was fun watching this unfold (not so much fun for the bidders).
Dinner With Lucy Lawless
The bidding war was frenzied as the three bidders went head to head for the prize of dinner with Lucy Lawless. What made it more nerve wracking for the bidders was that the CharityBuzz auction site reset the timer back to 9 minutes remaining on the countdown clock.
Every time someone bid, it was reset which must have driven the bidders totally crazy. When the dust settled and the winner emerged $12,500 was the winning bid for a dinner with Lucy Lawless.
Congratulations to JudeH for winning the dinner!

You're My Best Friend, Photographic Prints by Michael Parekowhai which Lucy bought with her first Xena pay packet didn't quite have the last frenetic bidding as the dinner but it jumped from the overnight bid of $10,500 and it jumped to $22,000 where it eventually sold.
Congratulations to Nilgiri for winning the artwork!
At the end of the day both bidders won but Greenpeace was the biggest winner. Lucy generated $34,500 for the Rainbow Warrior III. Greenpeace sent out a news update yesterday that they were on target to get $90,000 but I suspect that is going to be much higher now.
