The competition runs until Oct. 22, 2019, or  any time after 100,000 purchase entries have been received, raising $3.5 million for the husband and wife duo’s initiative to relieve themselves from what they describe as a “tremendous burden.”

According to a release, the couple say they are thinking out of the box as they are struggling with a mountain of debt, with no possible sale at cost recovery levels and poor prospects for waiting out the market.
