Mushing with Jonrowe offered on new eBay site

Posted: Tuesday, October 08, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A two-day winter trip with Iditarod musher DeeDee Jonrowe is one of 40 experiences being auctioned off on a new eBay site.

Online bidding started at $500 for a trip with Jonrowe that claims to be ''a hands-on primer on the art of sleddog racing from the sports top female racer.''

Among the other experiences to choose from on the eBay sports site are golf with Jack Nicklaus in West Palm Beach, Fla., a basketball shootaround with Earvin ''Magic'' Johnson in Chicago, and the chance to watch a minor league baseball game with Cal Ripken Jr. in Maryland.

All proceeds from the events will go to charity. Proceeds from the Jonrowe trip will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Jonrowe has been diagnosed with the disease.

As of Tuesday morning, no one had submitted the minimum $75,000 bid for golf with Nicklaus. The trip with Jonrowe, however, had netted 13 bids, including a top bid of $2,025. Bidding closes Friday.
