EJAF Party Merchandise Being Sold For Charity

Monday 5 June 2006 @ 16:21 - GMT

Ever dream of  owning a pair of autographed Chopard watches from Elton's Oscar bash or nabbing a role in CSI Miami? How about meeting JerrySeinfeld or receiving a private tour of Hugh Hefner's ''Playboy'' mansion? Any of these opportunities and many more (a hundred, to be exact) packages and auction items can be yours at Project Angel Foods Hollywood 100 Auction.

Anyone can bid from anywhere in the world. The live auction will take place on Saturday, June 17th beginning at 2:00 p.m. (PDT) at Bonhams & Butterfields in their Hollywood galleries and will be live simultaneously on eBay Live Auctions. This is the second bi-annual Hollywood 100 sale to raise money for Project Angel Food. This event attracts international attention with its very special offerings. In the first year, Hollywood 100 had bidders from around the universe and sold many of the items to buyers in London, Paris and Berlin.

The Live auction will be conducted by EdBeardsley, Auctioneer and General Manager of Bonhams & Butterfields. He served as auctioneer at the inaugural Hollywood 100 in 2004. Bonhams & Butterfields has auctioned many Hollywood estates and memorabilia collections including property from ElvisPresley, Liberace, SammyDavisJr., RaymondBurr and JoanCrawford.

Project AngelFood hopes to raise over $300,000 from Hollywood 100. This is a non-profit organisation based in Hollywood with a mission to nourish the body and spirit of men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS and other serious illnesses. Established in 1989, Project Angel Food is the only free daily meal-delivery program serving all of Los AngelesCounty.

Project AngelFood has many celebrity supporters who donate in various ways, from donating money to delivering meals and helping in the kitchen. Hollywood 100 is another way for high-profile people to give back by donating personal items, lunches, experiences, autographed memorabilia, and much more to benefit Project Angel Food. For a preview of the complete list of items offered for bid during Hollywood 100  (including the aforementioned watches Janet and Eric McCormack won at the 2006 EJAF Oscar party--which comes with a photograph of the victors and Elton) visit www.projectangelfood.org/hollywood100.
