Memorabilia auction to promote anti-bullying programs

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Former heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield is here in the valley helping to fight against childhood bullying.

It was all part of the 'Imagine 100 Faces' event -- a youth foundation by former NFL player Nick Lowery -- geared toward putting an end to bullying.

Along with Holyfield, the event will feature a concert with Grammy award winning artist Marion Meadows -- and quite the auction of rare collectibles such as autographed boxing gloves, one of Cher's gold records, and an NHL VIP package.

"We want all those that want to just literally figure out how to encourage the people in the spotlight of the school to the people in the shadows in the school," says Nick Lowery.

"My mother told me to respect people. People do tease people but to bully somebody is to know you are taking advantage of this person," says Evander Holyfield.
