Bidding $25,000 at a charity auction to visit a school built after Haiti's devastating earthquake, Milla Jovovich and Sharon Osbourne are going to fly to the country.
Milla Jovovich and Sharon Osbourne are set to head to Haiti after bidding $25,000 at a charity auction to visit a school built after the devastating 2010 earthquake. The Artists for Peace and Justice organization, which has Ben Stiller, moviemaker Paul Haggis and Olivia Wilde on the board of directors, has helped raise funds for the nation in the wake of last year's disaster.
Volunteers have worked tirelessly to build a school in Haiti, and the charity bosses donated a trip to the site as part of a fundraiser in Los Angeles on Thursday, January 13. Producer Ryan Kavanaugh teamed up with organizers to offer a flight on his plane to anyone who bid $25,000 for the trip - and the elite audience flocked to win the prize.
Five people offered up the cash for the trip, including Jovovich and Osbourne, reports the New York Daily News. Haggis was also honored for his dedicated work for the organization at the benefit.
