Mr. Tanen has a tie for EVERY occasion and event.  He also cares for his students, and when he finds out that they will not have the money to build a new playground, he wants to find a way to help.  He decides to auction off his many ties, and give the money to the school, in hopes that the playground can be built.  His generosity affects everyone in the town, and the residents surprise him with a gift of their own.  (Lynne Holcomb, South Carolina Book Awards, 2006)
