Anaheim : 'Celebrity' Eggs to Be Auctioned at Benefit

Easter eggs decorated by almost 50 celebrities, including President Reagan and the First Lady, will be sold at a silent auction at the Disneyland Hotel Saturday to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The auction will take place during a black-tie affair to raise money for the nonprofit organization, which fulfills the wishes of terminally ill children.

A spokeswoman for the auction said proceeds from the egg sales will go directly to making the children's wishes come true--from trips to Disneyland to visits with celebrities.

Celebrities who decorated eggs for the benefit, using jewels, glitter, feathers, sequins or just plain autographs, include Joan Rivers, Burt Reynolds, Leonard Nimoy, Bob Hope, Tommy Lasorda, Oprah Winfrey, Loni Anderson, Tony Danza, Malcolm Forbes, Jaclyn Smith, Marcus Allen, Charlton Heston, Charles Schulz and Bowie Kuhn.

Details are available by calling the Orange County chapter of Make-A-Wish.
