GENE SIMMONS PICKS UP PRICEY SHADES AT CHARITY AUCTION
May 6, 2009
Rocker Gene Simmons has blinged up his image – he paid $20,000 for a pair of gold sunglasses.
The Kiss bass player snapped up the 18-karat shades at an auction for wonderwall.com‘s Rally for Kids with Cancer campaign.
And the generous rocker also donated his own lot to the sale – a bidder paid $100,000 for exclusive backstage access to a Kiss show.
A guest at the auction, which raised more than $400,000, tells the New York Daily News, “He bought 18-karat gold sunglasses for $20,000, among other things. Gene also donated a trip with his band when they travel on their tour.”
