They raise $1,725 for Haiti Relief efforts
The boots that Jonathan Bornstein wore when he scored the last-minute goal to give the U.S. first place in CONCACAF qualifying while sending Honduras to the World Cup brought in $1,725 in an online auction to raise money for the relief efforts in Haiti.
Brett Morgan of Gainesville, Fla., posted the winning bid for the autographed shoes that Bornstein wore during the 2-2 draw against Costa Rica at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 14.
Morgan also received a surprise call from Bornstein thanking him for the generous support of the American Red Cross and their commitment to helping the people of Haiti. Morgan, 30, has been a fan of the U.S. team since 1994 and plans to attend a friendly against El Salvador in Tampa, Fla. on Feb. 24.
