The bidding ended today at $5,800 for the pilot's cap belonging to Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger. The eBay auction was held to raise money for Dougherty Valley High School and its sister school, Lockwood Elementary School in Oakland.
"Sully and I were excited by the opportunity to help these two public schools," Sullenberger's wife, Lorrie Sullenberger, said in a prepared statement. "We hope that the winner will enjoy owning Sully's hat but also that they will be happy that they have helped fund two deserving educational institutions."
