Miss Universe will be held on August 23. Pacquaio authographed boxing gloves sold for $450

A pair of boxing gloves signed by pound-for-pound king and “Fighter of the Decade” Manny Pacquiao fetched $450 at the 2010 Miss Universe National Gift Auction at the Palm Foyer on the 3rd Floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Sunday, Manila Time.

ABS-CBN Las Vegas correspondent Bev Llorente reported that a pearl necklace also from the Philippines was auctioned off for $1,250. The funds raised are for the benefit of the Nevada Cancer Institute .

The Philippines candidate Maria Venus Raj personally auctioned off the prized item from her home country just like the other 82 contestants in a show hosted y KSNV Channel 3 personality Alicia Jacobs and featuring current Miss Universe Stefania Fernandez.

The Miss Philippines winner auctioned off the signed gloves along with a photo of the congressman representing the lone district of Sarangani signing the gloves as a form of authentication in an affair which, according to Llorente took some two hours.

Prior to her departure the Miss Universe candidate paid a courtesy call on Pacquiao, the national sports hero who advised Maria Venus Raj "you must be confident. Just think you are in the Philippines. There are many of our countrymen there who will support you. I will call our friends who are there to help you."

The ABS-CBN correspondent reported that several Filipinos had traveled from across the United States to attend the affair and to show their support for Miss. Philippines with tickets costing $100. She also said that Raj received a lot of attention from the international media “not because of the items she auctioned off but because of her standout appeal.”
