Keith Richards, Def Leppard, Sambora Donate Guitars To WhyHunger Auction
This year's WhyHunger Hungerathon will have plenty of interesting memorabilia up for auction, including a red Fender Stratocaster signed by Keith Richards, a black Stratocaster autographed by the entire Def Leppard band, and a sunburst Stratocaster signed by Bon Jovi axe man Richie Sambora.
Now in its 27th consecutive year, WhyHunger auctions off rock memorabilia in order to raise money to fight global hunger. Along with the three guitars, there will also be proofs of the artwork from the Aerosmith album Pump, a motorcycle customized by Billy Joel, and a meet-and-greet with the Who on the block. There are over 1,000 items available at the WhyHunger's website.
WhyHunger was founded in 1975 by the late singer-songwriter Harry Chapin; it has raised more than $30 million and provided relief to more than 10 million people around the world.
