While Lindsay Lohan is due in court tomorrow for another go-'round of the necklace caper case, the Venice jewelry store who is accusing the actress of lifting the $2500 item says they're auctioning off the item in question for charity, according to ABC7. This is the second instance Kamofie & Co. is making headlines for raising money on the back of the case; earlier this week the store sold their surveillance video showing Lohan browsing and trying on the necklace.Kamofie & Co. denies they brought charges against Lohan to create publicity for their otherwise-unknown shop. A company spokesperson expressed chagrin and surprise at the "extensive media coverage" the case has drawn. It is not clear if anyone affiliated with Kamofie & Co. has ever turned on a TV or radio in Los Angeles, or America, when Lohan previously faced legal troubles.

The necklace is actually still considered evidence. In the meantime, the store is hoping the public can help them determine which charity should receive the donation from the sale.

If Lohan accepts a plea in court tomorrow, she is expected to be handed jail time. Should she opt to not accept a plea, the case will move on to the pre-trial phase.
