TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Friday was National Wear Red Day to raise awareness for heart disease. One local company took it a step further by raising money to fight the disease.

Interrupt Marketing in Sylvania held an online auction, selling glass hearts and handmade crafts. They will donate the proceeds to the American Heart Association of Toledo.

Staff at Interrupt say they chose this cause because they've been personally affected by heart disease.

"When we were looking for organizations that we could support, we realized that a lot of us here are touched by heart disease in a lot of different ways," said Creative Director Dan Henne.

The auction lasts until midnight Sunday night. Click here to see what is up for auction.
