Don’t you just love rock stars who give back to society? Steven Tyler, with his legendary voice and colorful ensemble, just did something that would blow anyone away – he sold his rare 2012 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder for a whooping $800k (he bought it for $1.1M so it’s a real steal) and proceeds went to Janie’s Fund – a charity that helps young girls who suffered from neglect and abuse.
Apparently, the winning bidder won’t just get his sports car because Tyler also offered a vacation stay in his beautiful and luxurious home in Hawaii. And if that isn’t enough, he even included a guitar autographed by his band Aerosmith as part of the package.
In a statement, he said: “We raised enough tonight to provide 20,000 days of therapeutic support to abused girls across America. As a father to three daughters, a son, and now a grandfather, it broke my heart to learn that each year in America alone, 700,000 children are victims of serious abuse or neglect – and 68,000 will be sexually abused.
Together through Janie’s Fund, we’re helping girls rebuild their lives and overcome the trauma they experienced.”
Hats off to this guy!
