Bono and Damien Hirst Raise $42.5 Million for Africa
On Valentine's Day last week the much anticipated (RED) Auction, benefiting The Global Fund in the fight against AIDS, took place at Sotheby's in New York. With U2 lead singer Bono and artist Damien Hirst bringing together one hundred contributing artists to create inspirational works of art for the auction, the feeling of love (for our fellow brothers and sisters fighting HIV/AIDS in Africa) was in the air. The auction raised an incredible $42.5 million and also set record sales for seventeen of the artists who contributed. It was an amazing evening that brought a star-studded crowd together for a noble cause -- now that's doing something beautiful with your money.
