[b]Carter Center Auction Offers Rare Air and Space Memorabilia Including "Man on the Moon" Certificate Signed by Apollo 11 Crew[/b]
[i]A certificate commemorating the first man on the moon signed by Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, Michael Collins, and Neil Armstrong, is one of several notable air and space items being sold at a public auction on Feb. 7, 2009 to support the work of the not-for-profit Carter Center, advancing peace and health. The items are available in honor of the 40th anniversary of the lunar landing (July 20, 2009).[/i]
In addition to these collectibles, more than 100 pieces such as sports memorabilia, art, and presidential artifacts will be sold via live and silent auctions in Port St. Lucie, Fla., during the Carter Center's annual Winter Weekend celebration.
Auction catalogues and bidding information can be found on the Carter Center's website.
Last year, the highest bid item at the annual fundraiser was a bench of hard maple wood handcrafted by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, which sold for $300,000.
The Carter Center is a not-for-profit, nongovernmental organization founded by the former President and his wife, Rosalynn, in 1982. The Center's programs have helped to improve life for people in more than 70 countries by resolving conflicts; advancing democracy, human rights, and economic opportunity; preventing diseases; improving mental health care; and teaching farmers in developing nations to increase crop production.
