David Wins Elton's Auction
WHAT do you buy the man who has everything?
At least that would seem to be the case when it comes to ELTON JOHN and his partner DAVID FURNISH.
I watched David in action at a posh charity dinner thrown by RIO FERDINAND, to launch Rio's new Live The Dream Foundation.
An auction was held after the nosh for things donated by Rio's wealthy pals.
Elton's gift was to spend the afternoon browsing his private art collection at his house in Windsor - then have afternoon tea with him and David.
But who should win the bidding for it - David.
He stumped up £30,000 for the experience.
Don't they like strangers calling or do they just enjoy their own company?
But it was a fun evening which raised more than £300,000 for Rio.
