SPOKANE, Wash. - If you love skateboarding and Pearl Jam, then you're going to love this. 

Up for auction on eBay until Sunday is a skateboard signed by Pearl Jam while they were in Spokane for their November 30th, 2013 concert during the Lightning Bolt tour. The best part is, the money raised from the auction will go to the Ferry County Rail Trail Partners, a non-profit group that is developing a 25 mile long trail in Ferry County. 

The board was donated by Bob Whittaker, CEO of Whittaker Outdoors and President of the Ferry County Rail Trail Partners. The auction site notes that Whittaker has over thirty years in the music business, including managing Mudhoney (who opened for Pearl Jam on November 30th), tour manager for R.E.M., Neko Case and most recently the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Eddie even gave Bob a shoutout during the concert in Spokane.

The skateboard itself was signed by the members of Pearl Jam, and the auction even notes that the "skateboard is new with a few minor dings and scuffs that were a result of Eddie Vedder and Jeff Ament testing it prior to signing it backstage."

As of Wednesday afternoon, the highest bid was sitting at $2,025. Get the most recent update on it here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pearl-Jam-Eddie-Vedder-Signed-Skateboard-Charity-Auction-/131278535809?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e90cf7c81#viTabs_0

The auction ends Sunday night, August 31st, 2014 at 7:24pm.
