Bid For A Stay On Donna Karan's Private Estate
Many celebrities own lavish vacation homes and some of them, luckily, like to share. Fashion designer Donna Karan has donated a stay on her private estate on Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos for auction on the charity auction site charitybuzz.com to raise funds for The Ellen Hermanson Foundation. The foundation was established in 1997 to honor the memory of Ellen Hermanson, a crusader in the fight against breast cancer. Proceeds from the auction will help fund the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center at Southampton Hospital.
Karan's estate, known simply as "The Sanctuary," is a Zen-like family retreat in easy reach of white sand beaches and turquoise waters. It has an infinity pool lined with black volcanic stone and the home is graced with Karan's collection of African and Asian art that adorns the white walls. The vacation up for bid is for eight people for four days and the auction ends on September 8. The lot is valued at over $40,000 and has a minimum next bid of $17,000.
