Rabiah Seminole is the original owner of the last known John Lennon autograph. Rabiah had been working as a switchboard operator at the Record Plant in Manhattan on December 8, 1980.  

In a sworn affidavit, Seminole states that "as John Lennon and Yoko Ono were leaving Record Plant they gave me a drawing done by John Lennon and signed by him and Yoko Ono."

Rabiah recalls receiving the sketch at about 10:25 p.m. that night.  
A very short time later that night, just before 11:00 p.m., Lennon was tragically gunned down by a deranged fan outside the Dakota.

The sketch was auctioned off, with the funds raised Rabiah started the non-profit foundation 
Blue Horse Mukwa Equine Retirement & Rescue Center .

As with most non profit foundations with animals in the winter time, the costs to feed and run the foundation are in dire need.
