The auction will begin on Aug. 15 and run for 10 days on eBay.com, according to a Facebook page set up for the auction. The auction lot will include the framed stitches, Shaw’s autograph and other items.
“Immediately after the finals, I suggested to Andrew that he keep his stitches as we could use them to raise money for a good cause,” said AM Sports Marketing Group owner Joel Alpert, who is helping Shaw with the auction. “Andrew said he wanted to support breast cancer research, and from there we came up with the auction concept.
“I chose The V Foundation as they promised me the money would be given directly to grants supporting breast cancer research. I couldn’t be happier with the charity we chose.”
