On Saturday, November 5, 2016, Julien's Auctions will offer fans and collectors the opportunity to bid on 20 lots from the personal collection of Eric Clapton in the Icons & Idols: Rock n' Roll Auction. All items have been hand-signed by EC and include stage worn clothing, suits, shoes and a series of BMI Certificates. 100% of proceeds from the sale will benefit Crossroads Centre. The centre was founded by Eric Clapton in 1997 for the treatment of alcohol and drug dependencies.
"The beneficiary of the sale items is the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, which opened in 1998 and which I am happy to say continues to flourish, but we do always need an influx of funds to help continue the good work being done out there. So, I am happy to use this opportunity to help Crossroads in its ongoing mission," Eric said upon announcement of the Julien's sale.
