LUBBOCK, Texas — The signature of Kansas City Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes has generated thousands of dollars at auction for two fallen and one injured first responders.
A Lubbock Fire Rescue (LFR) helmet signed by Mahomes is being auctioned off on eBay.com to benefit the families of Lubbock Police Department Officer Nicholas Reyna and LFR Lt.-Paramedic Eric Hill, who were killed in a roadway crash on Jan. 11, as well as injured Firefighter-Paramedic Matt Dawson, who was critically injured in the incident, FOX 4 KC reported.
Mahomes teamed up with McGavock Nissan in Lubbock to donate the signed helmet for the auction.
Bidding started at $500 on Thursday and was paused on Friday afternoon after reaching a bid of $12,200. The auction will resume on Monday, according to a Facebook post by McGavock Nissan.
