The items and schedule for the 2 hour charity auctions are as follows:

Sunday July 25th: 8 to 10 PM (EDT) iPad Wi-Fi 16gb

Monday July 26th: 8 to 10 PM (EDT) Dyson-Ball Upright vacuum DC 25

Tuesday July 27th: 8 to 10 PM (EDT) Xbox 360 Slim 250 gb

Boocoo.com launched nationally last month with nearly 300 media partners. "At Boocoo Auctions we are always looking for innovative, fun, and meaningful ways to improve the auction experience," said George Willard Sr., CEO of Boocoo's owner, Ranger Data Technologies. "We feel it's important to experiment with new platforms and programs to improve the opportunities for buyers and sellers. The two hour charity auction is another example of that type of innovation."
