An interactive auction of music memorabilia raised nearly $30,000 for the Teenage
Cancer Trust in London on Sept. 12, according to the official website of the Auction
Channel, which broadcast the event. A Fender Telecaster guitar signed by the surviving
members of Led Zeppelin and an autographed pair of All Saints singer
Nathalie Appleton's underwear each went for nearly $1,700, while Spice
Girl Scary Spice's tongue ring went for about $430. One-third of the bidders
participated from home by watching the broadcast and calling in their bids.
