Operation “Chuckie the Chicken Head”
The story: Everyone knows a guy like John “Goop” Mondelli. He’s one of “those guys” who when you need something, you call and he comes through. He is truly one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. He also happens to be one of the biggest race fans you will ever encounter…and specifically, a now closed Flemington Speedway fan.
One night, he put up this post on a 3wides message board:
As you can see by his heartfelt post, “Chuckie the Chicken” is more to him than a fiberglass chicken head. It is a piece of his life that someone is trying to profit on by selling it for a starting bid of $1000.
I am on a mission to get this chicken head for him.
The method: In a world filled with poverty, hunger, and typhoon damage…I know that a fiberglass chicken head is low on the list. That’s why this isn’t going to be a typical “dig down and donate money” for a good cause deal. That is, unless you want to!
I have two swap meets coming up: Kreitz’s in Sinking Spring, PA and the Megill’s at NES. I am going to bid on the head and use my own cash to buy it since the auction ends in 6 days. Every sale I make at the swap meet will go to pay for the grand I spend on the head. I am pricing everything LOW so you can buy stuff to resell it if you want. I don’t care if you take it from my spot, put it in your spot and make money or flip it on Ebay. I just want to turn enough over to cover my investment for Chuckie. I’m going to lose a bunch of money but I don’t care. We need Chuckie to go to Goop. If I don’t sell a grand worth of stuff, I’ll eat the rest and call it a day.
If I get over $1000 in sales at the swap meets, my wife and I will make a significant donation to Kevin Eyres’ Matheny Christmas Party.
