Alice Cooper, Slash + More Partner With John Varvatos Stuart House Online Auction
Alice Cooper, Slash, Joe Perry, Jimmy Page and other rockers are partnering with the John Varvatos Stuart House Online Auction. Every year, high-end men's designer and rock fan John Varvatos commandeers Melrose and Robertson, two very famous Los Angeles streets, and throws one helluva party to benefit Stuart House. It's an organization that serves and protects victims of childhood sexual abuse. This year, he has teamed up with Charitybuzz to cast an even wider net for his charity of choice. Together, they are offering infinitely cool auction packages, ranging from "experiences" to memorabilia, all of which benefit this important cause.
A key "experience" on the auction block is the chance to play golf with Alice Cooper in Phoenix, Ariz. The only stipulation, per the shock-rock legend: A less than 20 handicap! Bidding on the experience, valued at $4,000, is open here. Cooper is an avid golfer who penned 'Alice Cooper, Golf Monster: A Rock 'n' Roller's 12 Steps to Becoming a Golf Addict,' so you better be on your game if you dare to bid.
Other Stuart House auction packages include a one-hour drum lesson with former Guns N' Roses skins smasher Matt Sorum; a 'Guitar Collection' book signed by Jimmy Page, Slash, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons; a Gibson Les Paul Junior Custom Guitar autographed by Green Day; a Gibson Les Paul autographed by Slash; and a Gibson Les Paul autographed by Aerosmith's Joe Perry. It's all covetable and collectible, isn't it?
The John Varvatos Stuart House Online Auction runs now through March 20 at this location. 100 percent of net proceeds benefit Stuart House. The John Varvatos Stuart House Benefit Event will take place on Sunday, March 11, in Los Angeles.
