Celebrity Donations to Help Two Charities

Written by Chief Editor.

A metallic blue Gucci tracksuit with red, blue and white stripes, owned by Sir Elton, is expected to fetch thousands of pounds at auction next month.

 
This is to be part of the MusiCares Charity Auction in Beverly Hills, California, hosted by Julien's Auctions (also online) on the 9th of September.
 
Other clothing, worn by the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Tom Jones, and Barbra Streisand, will be sold, as will signed instruments. The latter includes a black ukulele autographed by Billie Eilish and a guitar with Robert Plant and Tony Iommi's signatures.
 
There's even a bit of art: Chrissie Hynde's painting of Brian Eno and Ronnie Wood's signed lithograph ''Decades 50's.''
 
MusiCares was set up by the Recording Academy to provide support for people in the music industry. Proceeds from the auction will be shared between MusiCares and the Grand Ole Opry Trust Fund, which provides financial assistance to those in the country music industry.
