A Celebrity Auction - Pick Up An Autograph Or A Costume
A celebrity auction is a great place to pick up mementoes from your favorite stars. You'll find a wide array of items up for bid at a celebrity auction, including some things that you probably never expected to find for sale. For the most part, a celebrity auction will be held with the goal of raising money for some charity, event or program. There are some other reasons for a charity auction. One of those reasons could be financial distress. Celebrities, though usually very wealthy, are just like anyone else in that misfortune can strike. Bad investments, poor planning or excessive lifestyles can lead to bankruptcy or foreclosure. Invitation-only auctions may be held in this case since a celebrity auction of this kind would likely draw thousands who had no intention of buying anything, but only wanted a look at a star's belongings. The auctions in these cases may be limited to those who can wrangle an invitation. Other misfortunes that befall celebrities can also lead to a celebrity auction. Those who find themselves jailed for whatever reason may have property confiscated, especially if theft or drugs are among the charges. In those cases, vehicles and other possessions go up on the auction block. The fact that the celebrities are notorious may actually lure more people to bid on those items, driving the price up even more than normal. In some cases, a celebrity auction is widely publicized and everyone is invited to attend and to bid - if you can stand the prices. The object in those cases is typically to raise as much money as possible for a specific cause. Programs for school children, needy, elderly or handicapped are among the reasons for a celebrity auction. A celebrity auction may also be held as part of another event. What better way to attract lots of people than to auction off autographs of celebrities during a festival?
