Charlize Theron's dress sale
The dress Charlize Theron wore to the 2000 Cannes Film Festival has raised $1,825 for charity.
A lucky US bidder beat 38 other people in an eBay auction, which closed yesterday (13.03.08), to claim the white Narciso Rodriguez size 4 bias-cut full-length silk gown adorned with Swarovski crystals.
Proceeds from the sale will go to the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project.
The charity aims to help impoverished children and their families in South Africa, focusing particularly on those suffering from AIDS and HIV.
Charlize is not the only Hollywood actress to recently raise money for charity via an online auction.
This week, one fan paid $40,100 to meet Scarlett Johansson at the premiere of her new movie 'He's Just Not That Into You' this summer.
The proceeds from the auction go to Oxfam America, the Boston-branch of the international relief agency.
Kristin Davis is auctioning off two tickets to accompany her to the 'Sex and the City: The Movie' premiere, and is also donating proceeds to Oxfam America.
