ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) -  It's Bow Tie Tuesday. This morning I ask, what would you pay for one of my bow ties?  I heard someone paid $300 dollars for one over the weekend.

I hosted the first annual Sacred Heart School Auction in Florrisant and Monsignor Mark Ullrich asked what else can we auction off, "How about Pertzborn's bow tie?"

The bidding was fast and furious and the Monsignor's sister, Connie Meyer paid the top bid of $300!

The action raised $64,000. The money will purchase 25 new computers for the kids at sacred heart.
