The fourth annual Lindt Gold Bunny Celebrity Auction launched on March 5 and four cast members from “Dancing with the Stars” are lending their support to raise money for Autism Speaks, the world’s largest autism advocacy organization. Judge Bruno Tonioli, pro dancers Cheryl Burke and Derek Hough and host Brooke Burke Charvet have all lent their signatures to the cause by autographing porcelain Lindt Gold Bunnies. They will be auctioned off online at LindtGoldBunnyAuction.com from March 5-15, and 100% of the proceeds will benefit Autism Speaks.
To bid on one of the Lindt Gold Bunnies in the Celebrity Auction, go to the auction page on ebay and click on a celebrity’s name. You will then be directed to his or her individual auction. Lindt will also donate 10 cents to Autism Speaks for every chocolate Gold Bunny purchased from Feb. 15-March 31, up to $100,000.
