Cunard Line Sponsors Stars For A Cause Charity Auction

    Celebrity-Designed Jewellery, Fashion Accessories and More...

    Collection to be displayed aboard Queen Mary 2 on 26 April

    SOUTHAMPTON, England, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Stars For A Cause, a
uniquely creative charity auction campaign, is set to showcase its collection
of custom-made, hand-crafted jewellery and fashion accessories designed by a
who's-who list of Hollywood celebrities and worn on the red carpet by the
likes of Goldie Hawn and William Shatner, among others.  A preview of the
collection begins an international tour on Sunday 26 April departing New York
aboard Cunard's Queen Mary 2 on a Transatlantic Crossing en route to England.

    The collection will preview in an exhibit at Bonhams (New Bond Street) in
London on 5 May during an event organized by The Prince's Trust, one of the
benefitting charities.  Then, it arrives back to New York for an exhibit at
Bonhams (Madison Avenue) on 18 May before the tour and final preview culminate
at a live auction with more than 100 lots at Bonhams & Butterfields, in Los
Angeles on 28 May.

    "Cunard Line has long offered a most civilized mode of travel across the
Atlantic for scores of celebrities, royalty and stars alike, and now their
dazzling jewellery and fashion accessories will travel in-style.  We take
great pride in being the official liner transporting the Stars For A Cause
collection to its unveiling in London," shared Carol Marlow, president of
Cunard Line.

    This year's campaign was made possible by the generous contribution of
acclaimed jewellery designer Robyn Rhodes, who guided the celebrities on their
designs and oversaw manufacturing of the one-of-kind pieces.  Grabbing
attention on the men's footwear-scene, Auri Footwear lent its expertise for
celebrity "leading men" to design excessively-comfortable leather shoes.
