NEW YORK (AP) - A fork that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio famously used to eat pizza at a Staten Island restaurant will be auctioned for charity.

A retired NYPD sergeant preserved the utensil from Goodfella’s Pizzeria in a police evidence bag.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. The group assists first responders and wounded warriors.

Those interested can bid by going on the foundation’s website, www.tunnel2towers.org . The auction ends Feb. 21.

A foundation spokesman says the mayor’s office fully supports the auction.

John Hodge told amNewYork “Mayor de Blasio is being a big sport about this.”
