Minyanville's multi-media platform is one that blends finance, education and entertainment to help navigate the muddy and turbulent waters of finance. Building an animated learning ladder from pre-school to old school, and creating content for those running piggy banks to those running investment banks, Minyanville's mission is to promote "fiscal literacy." The auction's convergence of finance and children's education underscores Minyanville's commitment to promote both social and fiscal responsibility.

"When I started Minyanville, one of my primary goals was to encourage the finance community to give back to themselves as well as the community -- to appreciate life both inside and outside the office," remarked Todd Harrison, CEO and Founder of Minyanville. "My hope is that this auction is that it will serve as a reminder to everyone not just to enjoy the spoils of the journey but to enjoy the journey itself."

The one-of-a-kind white Stratocaster, which was chosen given Harrison's nickname "Hendrix," crossed the country for more than 2 months while securing its many signatures. Given the impressive list of signatures from financial luminaries, one notable hedge manager described it as the Wall Street version of a baseball bat autographed by the 1927 Yankees. The full list of signatures on the guitar are as follows:
