Frying Pan Tower selling flag flown during Hurricane Dorian to raise money for local communities

The bid for the flag is currently at $1,125.

OCRACOKE, N.C. — The flag that was flown at the Frying Pan Tower during hurricane Dorian is being sold on eBay.

The funds raised by Old Glory "Steve" will help the residents in Ocracoke, North Carolina who were impacted by the storm.

The organization said all of the funds from the auction will go to the residents.

On the eBay page, the nonprofit requests the buyer either retired or display Old Glory with honor and respect and know that you are helping make a difference.

Good news, FPTower Inc. is a nonprofit, so the winning big is very likely to be tax-deductible.
