Organization to take charity auctions on-line
By Kathleen Manwaring
Bill Murphy is a man with a plan. It began 15 years ago when he founded The Last Gasp Bike, Boat ‘n’ Bake fundraising event. In the wake of its success came eGasp, The Auction, aimed at further expanding local fundraising.
2006 marks the evolution of eGasp into the technological mainstream as Murphy takes the fundraising auction on-line.
Fifteen years ago Murphy created The Last Gasp in memory of his father, Henry L. Murphy. The goal was to raise money for local charities in an enjoyable manner. 'It started off as this fun thing,' he said."
