Gossip Girl - Stars Raise $600,000 At Arts Auction
Gossip Girl's Ed Westwick and Emily Mortimer helped raise $600,000 (£375,000) for charity at a star-studded auction in New York City on Tuesday (17May11).
Actress Molly Sims and socialite Ann Dexter-Jones were among the 500 guests who attended the Free Arts Nyc Annual Art Auction Benefit at the Chelsea Art Museum.
The lots up for grabs included a black and white photo of scantily-clad singer Carla Bruni smoking, which was taken by photographer Pamela Hanson, an acrylic sculpture of a puzzle piece by Yoko Ono, and snaps of Patti Smith, James Brown and Debbie Harry.
Proceeds raised will benefit arts programs for underprivileged children.
