Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation To Benefit From Charity Auction At Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum

An upcoming charity auction brings together the unusual combination of Snoopy and a motorcycle from a Quentin Tarantino movie.

The MotoStars charity auction to benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation features a wide array of motorcycle memorabilia.

According to the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum...

To celebrate its new "MotoStars: Celebrities + Motorcycles" exhibit, the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum is offering enthusiasts the opportunity to take home a piece of exhibit-themed memorabilia while supporting a good cause.

Proceeds from the auction will benefit donors' selected charities, including the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF).

The first item benefiting PBTF is a "Joe Motocross" Snoopy statue. This unique piece of art, which stands five feet tall, honors legendary "Peanuts" creator Charles M. Schulz, who introduced millions of people to the sport of motocross in the book and movie, "You're a Good Sport, Charlie Brown."

"The statue is completely unique, and nothing like it will ever be produced again," says Ruth Chambers, noting that Charles Schulz' son Craig designed Snoopy's helmet, boots and chest protector.

The PBTF will also receive proceeds from the auction of a 2006 Honda VTX1300 ridden by actor Francesco Quinn in the Quentin Tarantino-produced biker movie "Hell Ride."

Quinn, the son of legendary actor Anthony Quinn, launched his career in "Platoon" (1986) and has since starred in numerous movies. He will personally autograph the Honda for the winning bidder.
