A celebrity fundraiser, dinner and auction was held in Milan which was associated with Milan Fashion Week. The event was attended by stars, such as Donatella Versace, Linda Evangelista and Kanye West and the evening was chaired by Michael’s sister, Janet.
One of the items to be auctioned was a pair of crystal studded boots that Michael intended to wear during his O2 Arena ‘This Is It’ concerts. They reached 10,000 Euros. The money raised was given to AMFAR, the American Foundation For Aids Research.
