There was an unusual fundraising tactic Friday at the Community Service League luncheon in San Mateo.

Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., served as auctioneer and decided to auction off the jewelry she was wearing for the cause. It raised $600. And when someone asked about her jacket, she auctioned that off as well for $700.

All the proceeds raised go toward the Mental Health Association of San Mateo County and Star Vista Crisis and Suicide Prevention.
