Sean Collier from the Allegheny County Office of Special Events informs me that there's a "Ties on Tour” celebrity tie auction to benefit the Kane Regional Centers which includes 30 autographed ties in a silent auction throughout the month of June 2007.

According to the auction website:
All proceeds will benefit the Kane Foundation, which raises private funds to help enhance the quality of life of the residents of Allegheny County’s four Kane Regional Centers and their families. The Foundation helps to fund adult education classes, cultural and sporting events, and pet therapy, among other activities.Aside from Luke's and Dan's ties, you can also bid on ties from national celebs like Jimmy Kimmel, Rod Stewart and Tim Russert.
