'X Factor' Castaway Cheryl Cole Raises Money in Charity Auction
British pop darling Cheryl Cole may have been fired from “The X Factor”, but that won’t stop her from doing some good. The much-adored pop star recently participated in a charity auction and raised a sizable amount of money just by auctioning off her clothes.
Cole set up the auction through her own Cheryl Cole Foundation in order to raise funds for the Prince’s Trust. All of the items were fashionable pieces that Cole wore herself during episodes of the UK version of “The X Factor” from designers like Phillip Lim and Julien MacDonald.
The 20 pieces auctioned drew in a whopping £48,000, or just over $77,000. Through the Prince’s Trust, the money is meant to provide grants to disadvantaged youth.
The Prince’s Trust, meanwhile, held a 35th anniversary party the other week with celebs like Rod Stewart and Kevin Spacey in attendance.
