ARLINGTON, WA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — GoldenPalace.com, the internet casino known for its eccentric eBay purchases, has won an auction for a hot dog with a bid of $1800 US. GoldenPalace.com adds to its collection of eccentric items while benefiting cancer research.
The Seattle Super Dog is not just any dog but one that was purchased during the Seattle Seahawks NFC Championship game against the Carolina Panthers towards the end of the 3rd quarter at QWEST Field during the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP game.

Controversy swirled around the auction as the price for the dog grew continually until it was discovered that there were many false bids. The auction was then reset to include only bidders that could cut the mustard.
GoldenPalace.com won with a bid of $1800 US and will soon be in possession of the Super Dog which is now vacuum sealed and frozen for freshness.
As it is the case with many of the purchases GoldenPalace.com has made in the past, a portion of the proceeds from the sale will go to charity. In this instance, the Grant Wistrom Foundation which works to positively affect the lives of children, especially those afflicted with cancer. The Foundation is recognized as a non-profit organization and funding comes solely from annual fund raising events and corporate and public contributions.
“We are happy to have the opportunity to contribute to this worthy cause,” said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. “The eBay webpage received over 350,000 visitors so it’s obvious that people are interested in the Super Dog. This will be a welcome addition to our collection of odd items.”
GoldenPalace.com has made headlines worldwide by winning a variety of unusual eBay auctions, several of which were for charity. Some of their most notable eBay purchases have been the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears Pregnancy Test, and William Shatner’s Kidney Stone. The casino has used these and other items to raise over $1,000,000 for charities worldwide so far.
