Vick Cards Raise Thousands of Dollars

Vick Cards Raise Thousands of Dollars
By: Heartland News

NFL quarterback Michael Vick pleaded guilty to federal dog fighting conspiracy charges.
His case prompted a Cape Girardeau artist to take action.

Rochelle Steffen gave her collection of Michael Vick trading cards to her dogs to chew.  Those cards then went to auction on Ebay, with the proceeds going to the animal shelter of the winner's choosing.

The auction ended Wednesday morning with a very healthy total of $7400 dollars.  Steffen says she's very happy with the results of her efforts.

The winner of Steffen's auction is a local woman who will split her donation between the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri and the Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary.
