Rose Percy’s long stint with the American Red Cross comes to close today. The 23-inch, Tiffany jewelry wearing,wax doll is being auctioned off in an effort to expunge the $33 million budget deficit the Red Cross has amassed over time.
Rose isn’t the only treasure being sold. Nurse uniforms from World War I in addition to the numerous other historical items from the Civil War era and before will be the hot items to spot in the auction.
Roger Lowe, Red Cross spokesman, said, “It’s a chance to buy a piece of history.”
All proceeds from today’s auction will benefit Red Cross general fund, which aids in the effort to execute their humanitarian mission.
