Celebrity Jockey Silks Auctioned
Celebrities are putting their artistic skill to good use for charity. They are decorating jockey silks - the brightly colored shirts and caps worn by jockeys during horse races - that are being auctioned online to raise money for the Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, England. The silks will be displayed to the public at the World Museum Liverpool until April 30th, as the winners of the auction are not to be announced until May 12th.
Richard Branson and Yoko Ono, contributing one of John Lennon's designs, are among the participating celebs. The silk illustrated here was designed by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey. The rest of the silks can be viewed online, where bids will also be taken.
