THE 1999 COKE CAN CHALLENGE
The "Coke Can Challenge" started as of a result of Nigel Bennett auctioning off a Coke Can at Bridging the Knight in January 1997. He auctioned off his empty can of Coca-Cola, which fetched the surprising sum of US $150, and thereby started a tradition in which the guest auctioneers at all MPICA events auction off a can by shamelessly coaxing the highest bid via various stunts and antics.
Click here from some candid photos of the auctioneers "in action"!We look forward to many, many more cans of Coca-Cola raising money for our charities.
