Bruce Memorabilia To Be Auctioned To Fund Women's Shelter

The family of legendary funnyman LENNY BRUCE is putting the comic's keepsakes up for auction to raise cash for a women's shelter that bears his name.
Rare memorabilia from his estate, including letters, one of his trademark trench coats and his typewriter will go under the hammer on what would have been the late comedian's 84th birthday (13Oct09).
The auction, which will benefit shelter Lenny’s House, will take place on the comic's official website and run until 28 October (09).
Famous fans and friends of Bruce, including Elizabeth Taylor, Chris Rock, Hugh Hefner and Yoko Ono, have also contributed items for the auction.
Bruce's daughter tells WENN, "For more than 40 years, I held on to these items, but I am happy to let them go because it will help so many.
"I wanted to honour my father’s memory in a way that will change lives and, with Lenny’s House, I have never felt so right about anything in my entire life... We need to help each other and those who cannot help themselves."
