The December 2nd fire in Oakland at the Ghost Ship warehouse that tragically ended the lives of 36 people was indeed an unfortunate event. Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has decided to pitch in to help the victims of this adverse situation. Curry auctioned off two pairs of game worn sneakers to help the victims of the fire.
According to the Warriors, the kicks , which were the “Oakland Strong” version of his Curry 3’s, Curry wore in their December 15th game against the New York Knicks. The shoe features “Oakland” in a graffiti-esque script on the lateral side of one shoe and ” Strong” on the other. The sneakers were auctioned off to an anonymous bidder for $3o,101. The “Ghost Ship” versions that he wore pregame, which have “Ghostship” emblazoned on both shoes, fetched $13,356, also to an anonymous bidder.
Both pair have the initials on them of all who perished in the flames.
All of the funds raised will go to the Oakland Fire Relief Fund.
