An autographed NASCAR helmet is up for bid to help abused children in the Shenandoah Valley.
The racing helmet has been signed by every single driver from the 2013 Chase for the Sprint Cup, 14 names in all. The proceeds from the one-of-a-kind helmet are going to the Valley Children’s Center in Staunton, which helps children who are victims of physical or sexual abuse.
"The Valley Children's Center creates this wonderful, safe environment for a child to come and tell probably one of the most horrible things that has ever happened in their young life, and then probably for their whole life,” said Victoria Cash Graff, president of the Valley Children’s Center board.
Bids for the helmet are starting at $1,500.
