Default Pen for charity

I was asked if I would turn a pen for a silent auction charity event. After looking over the kits and blanks I had on hand, I came up with this. It is a 'Ultra Cigar" kit from Woodcraft. I think it turned out pretty nice.
Now.....I also have to give them an estimated value of the item. What should I tell them regarding its value? Thanks for looking.

Nice Pen, Tom.
Glorious Blank, and Finish.
Turn that special piece of Timber you have been keeping.
Enjoy it for its true beauty.
Why leave it for others to enjoy without you?

My value for that pen would be my selling price. 3 x's the total material cost upped to the nearest $5.00.

It feels great to sell a pen;
It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

I am a proud supporter of
