Felipe Rose-- Village People-- Silent Auction

So the other night during the live broadcast of the Derek and Romaine show we received a very cool phone call. Felipe Rose, of the Village People was on the line with a special offer for the DNR listeners. After listening to Romaine talk about the Cycle for the Cause AIDS Ride, Felipe was so moved by the lengths that Team OutSpoken was going to to raise donation that he decided to offer his help. Felipe has donated one of his Platinum Records as well as a unique piece of art work up for us to do a silent auction with the proceeds benefiting Cycle for the Cause.

This Platinum Record was for the UK sales of the Village People's "Can't Stop The Music". This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of music history. These type of records are only given to artists and producers who have worked on the albums and are rarely made available to the public.

Can't Stop The Music- Platinum UK Record given to Felipe Rose 
In addition to this amazing record Felipe is donating one of these signed limited edition art prints.

One of Felipe's Gold Records is hanging in the Smithsonian and here is your chance to own one of his Platinum Records. This is a piece of LGBT music history and a once in a life time opportuniy. In order to bid on this amazing auction visit the Derek and Romaine Facebook Fan Page and leave your bid in the comments section. The auction will be live from 5:10pm EST Tuesday Aug. 28th and will end on at 8:00pm EST on Friday Aug. 31st. The winner will be contacted by the DNR show and once the winning donation is made to Cycle for the Cause rider Romaine Patterson the items will be shipped to the winner. The starting bid for this auction will be $500. 

Remember this auction is a fund raiser for the Cycle for the Cause AIDS Ride benefiting The LGBT Center's  AIDS services. We ask that only serious bidders make a bid. In the event that the winning bidder is unable to make the donation the next person in the line of bidders will be given the opportunity to make the donation for the item.
