Bizchum auctions celebrity items for ChildHaus

Legendary painter Jun Aquino with the man of the hour

This holiday season, the Philippines’ first social commerce network, BizChum (www.bizchum.com), launches a celebrity charity auction for ChildHaus, a temporary home for indigent pediatric patients with cancer and other life-threatening diseases while undergoing medical evaluation or treatment.

The auction opens with the memorabilia of prima ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde, TV host Boy Abunda, official Pacquiao painter Jun Aquino, and Ateneo Blue Eagles guard Kiefer Ravena.

Lisa Macuja-Elizalde’s signed pair of Suffolk Pointe ballet shoes, together with a signed copy of her coffeetable book, “Ballerina of the People,” are bundled for a starting bid of P1000.

Boy Abunda’s trench coat by Rajo Laurel, worn for The Buzz’s 8th anniversary show, is also going for a starting bid of P1000.

Jun Aquino’s “Pacquiao vs. Bradley” painting, meant to be used for Manny Pacquiao’s victory party in the controversial match that he “lost,” is going for an amazingly low starting bid of P20,000. Aquino was editorial cartoonist for almost two decades of the defunct Philippines Free Press, the oldest newsmagazine in the country where the likes of the late National Artist for Literature Nick Joaquin and legendary journalist Teodoro Locsin Sr. worked.  Having used to working for “legends” Aquino is now the official painter of living sports icon Pacquaio.

Kiefer Ravena’s jersey starts at Php500.

Other items for the opening week of the auction include a signed copy of “A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball” by NBA Miami Heat Star Dwyane Wade, and

Shoes of prima ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde

“Seriously… I’m Kidding” by top daytime talk show host Ellen de Generes, both donated by National Book Store.

The auction is also set to unveil memorabilia pledged by Asia’s pop idol Christian Bautista, RX 93.1 DJs Chico and Delamar, Star Magic celebrities, and others coming together to make Christmas more meaningful in the life of a sick child.

Interested bidders can sign up for a BizChum account and place their bids on the item’s auction page. All proceeds of the auction shall be turned over to ChildHaus in time for Christmas.

Bizchum is a 100% Filipino owned social commerce network which offers free classified ad postings as well as an avenue for social networking, extending the selling floor by offering sellers a venue to interact with both existing and potential buyers.
