public auction at the Real World Chicago house this Sunday and Monday.
This Sunday and Monday, The Real World Chicago’s stuff is being auctioned off for charity–at the actual house where taping took place. For $15, you can attend a preview on Sunday, checking out the items; $30 gets you in Monday for the actual auction and accompanying cocktail party. In either case, you will actually be inside The Real World Chicago loft in Wicker Park. The cast and cameras, however, will probably not be around, since filming has concluded. Funds raised will go to the Hearts Foundation, which provides AIDS-related services.
