Lowell Ninety Nine auctions it's stuff for charity

Gail Metropolis absolutely had to have the eagle.
It was carved in a wood
plaque, painted blue and gold, and measured five feet wide. Bids started at
$100, and on the last day of the auction she stayed until midnight at the Ninety
Nine Restaurant in Lowell where it had hung near the bar for 15 years, locked in
a fierce bidding war.
Proceeds from this auction went to Lowell's public school and the city's Boys and Girls Club.
