(AP) It's like throwing money out the window, only backward.


The brick a vandal tossed through a Pittsburgh printing shop's window Monday night fetched its new owner more than $1,000 in an impromptu auction Tuesday.


Business owner Dan Rugh says what was initially a frustrated joke turned into a big moneymaker, with people and businesses alike pitching in prizes. One woman offered tickets to a Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game, a brewery offered a free tour, and restaurants donated gift certificates.


The final $1150 bid for the brick came in at 11:59 p.m. Donations totaled about $1000 more.


The window cost only $425 to fix so Rugh and his partner say they'll donate the rest to charity.
