Solid Blue Fans can own a piece of UK Basketball history and help fight pediatric cancer in Kentucky at the same time.

Northwestern Mutual has donated 300-pieces of the Final Four floor the Wildcats won the National Championship on in New Orleans last spring.

The top 300-bidders will get one of the John Calipari autographed, numbered pieces which come with a certificate of authenticity.

Money generated from the auction will benefit pediatric cancer efforts at Kentucky Children's Hospital in Lexington and Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville.

A portion of the floor will also be installed in the newly renovated locker room at Rupp Arena.

The online bidding begins at noon Thursday, October 11, 2012.

The bidding will end one week later at noon, Thursday, October 18, 2012.
