Original Colonel Sanders' Suit Auctioned Off for $80,000
Harman Management namesake Leon W. "Pete'' Harman was recognized by the KFC Corporation for fifty years of service. As the Colonel's first franchisee, Harman played a significant role in helping make KFC's secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices a household name—and an international mystery.
Mildred Sanders Ruggles donated her father's trademark suit to be auctioned off at a benefit for KFC's new charity, Colonel's Kids, which was established to help combat America's child care crisis.
Inspired by Colonel Harland Sanders' love for children and KFC's commitment to family values, Colonel's Kids was established to help combat America's child care crisis. KFC is one of the first corporations to address the child care issue nationally. Money raised through Colonel's Kids will help YMCA Child Care develop pilot programs in two underdeveloped areas: infant/toddler care and extended-hour care.
