As part of the home video promotions for Ralph Breaks the Internet, Walt Disney Animation Studios has donated a replica of the Sugar Rush steering wheel for an eBay auction, with 100% of the proceeds to be donated to Make-A-Wish.
The auction began Feb. 26 and runs through 6 a.m. Pacific time March 5 at www.eBay.com/ralphbreakstheinternet.
In the film, the steering wheel on Vanellope’s Sugar Rush game breaks, prompting her and Ralph to head to the Internet to buy a new one, which they find for sale on eBay listed for $200.
The replica steering wheel has been autographed by cast members Sarah Silverman, Gal Gadot and Jane Lynch. The winning bidder will also receive a Blu-ray copy of the movie and a limited-edition autographed poster by the cast and filmmakers including Silverman, John C. Reilly, Taraji P. Henson, Jack McBrayer, Phil Johnston, Rich Moore and Clark.
The bid was up to $1,675 as of the morning of Monday, March 4.
Make-A-Wish helps grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses. Since 1980, Disney has helped Make-A-Wish grant more than 130,000 wishes. More than 10,000 Disney wishes are granted every year.
Update: the winning bid was $1,725.
