Dee Snider Auctions Off Memorabilia to Benefit Broadway Cares
Nov 26, 2014


Dee Snider's Rock and Roll Christmas TaleDee Snider, creator and star of DEE SNIDER'S ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE, will auction off various personally autographed awards and memorabilia for charity. In the spirit of the holiday, all proceeds from the auction will benefit one of his favorite charities Broadway Cares/Equity Fight AIDS. The charity auction is currently running through December 22, 2014 and will be hosted at www.broadwaycares.org/eBayDeeSniderAuction.  A select number of awards and memorabilia will be available each week for one week only.  Dee Snider is starring as the narrator in DEE SNIDER'S ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E Chestnut) through Jan. 4, 2015.

"In deciding what to do with this myriad of items, it occurred to be that there might be people out there who would enjoy displaying some of these things in their own home-as a reflection of a past or present passion they might have or just because they were mine and be willing to pay money for them.  I'm hoping that there are some very generous people out there who will bid on them, knowing that their money will be going to help others in need," said Snider.

In 2014, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS awarded over $175,000 to AIDS and family service organization in Illinois, with more the $150,000 specifically sent to 12 social service agencies in the Chicago area, including AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Chicago House, Children's Place Association, Howard Brown Health Clinic, Vital Bridges and more.
