Charlize Theron raises funds for charity

he dress Charlize Theron wore to the 2000 Cannes Film Festival has raised $1,825 for charity.

A lucky US bidder beat 38 other people in an online auction, to claim the white Narciso Rodriguez size-4 bias-cut full-length silk gown adorned with crystals.

Proceeds from the sale will go to the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project. The charity aims to help impoverished children and their families in South Africa, focusing particularly on those suffering from AIDS and HIV.

Charlize is not the only Hollywood actress to recently raise money for charity via an online auction. Recently, a fan paid $40,100 to meet Scarlett Johansson at the premiere of her new movie He’s Just Not That Into You'.
