George H.W. Bush face socks raise $535 for charity

Updated

Former President George H.W. Bush has always been known to wear some exotic footwear. But, he may have finally outdone himself with his latest wacky pair of socks that feature a picture of his own face!

After showing off his new sock wear at an event at the Lyndon B. Johnson foundation, the 41st president donated the red and white striped face socks to the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce, an organization dedicated to the improvement and promotion of the economic and community environment of Yarmouth Maine.

The socks fetched $535 from the winning bidder Wednesday evening and the proceeds will benefit the scholarship and fuel assistance funds.

This isn’t the first time Bush has donated his famous footwear to charity. In October, President Bush donated his cactus socks to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland, where the money raised went to support the diocese’s Harvest magazine.
