Last week, PHIL COLLEN, lead guitarist for the iconic rock band DEF LEPPARD, announced plans for a charitable auction of “Wings”, a custom Jackson PC1 guitar that Collen has played throughout this summer’s Rock of Ages tour. The auction began exclusively through eBay on September 5th and with little more than 24 more hours left until it ends in the morning of September 15th – the bidding has shattered all expectations and has now reached beyond the $15,000 mark!
Following the charity auction closely, COLLEN said, “I’m really excited about this auction and I’m really getting quite attached to this guitar. This means so much to everyone involved. We look forward to contributing to the longevity of the Gerson Institute and even more so, the longevity of life.”
The winner will be announced in November which is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and all proceeds from the auction will benefit the Gerson Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the Gerson Therapy, an alternative treatment for cancer and other degenerative diseases.
