Auction to Benefit Yum-o! Organization

Rachael Ray's charity for kids, Yum-o!, has come up with a very creative way to raise cash. Yum-o! is "a non-profit organization that empowers kids and their families to develop healthy relationships with food and cooking. This is achieved by teaching families to cook, feeding hungry kids and funding cooking education." In order to help meet these goals, it has teamed up with Rachael Ray's talk show to create an amazing ongoing auction.

There are items from celebrity guests, trips to meet Rachael, items featured on the show, and even a copy of Rachael's blue fridge, signed by second season guests. The signatures on the fridge reveal many upcoming guests (and some we've already seen) including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Patricia Heaton, Alan Alda, Valerie Bertinelli, Teri Hatcher, Drew Carey, Danny DeVito, Wayne Brady, Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day, Allison Sweeney, Minnie Driver, Daniel Radcliffe, Larry King, Elliott Yamin, and Apolo Anton Ohno.

Here are the items that are currently up for bid, but the page will be updated on an ongoing basis. Have fun browsing and if you bid, you will definitely be helping out a great cause.
