According to TMZ, Beyoncé donated her iconic black hat from the 2016 Formation World Tour, which was inscribed with the message, ‘All My Love’ and also autographed by the queen herself. The hat is valued at around $2,000.
Pharrell also donated two pairs of Adidas Original sneakers, with one of the pairs detailed with a fuchsia and white color scheme. The featured kicks also include his autograph and an inspiring message written around the shoe. The other pair of Adidas will be custom made for the winning bidder.
The auction closed yesterday, November 6th, and the items fetched 19 times more than expected. One lucky Beyhive member snatched the hat for $27,500! The sneakers brought in $11,375, totaling nearly $40K in benefit of the project’s efforts.
It’s amazing to see what can be done when this type of star power joins forces.
