Items signed by Elton are among the memorabilia from the Rosie O'Donell Show for sale at the 16th annual Broadway Flea Market and Grand Auction, benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS on September 22, 2002.
It takes place in Shubert Alley and on West 44th Street between 10 am and 7 pm. The event is a collector's paradise, with such backstage treasures as signed posters, playbills, and one-of-a-kind memorabilia on sale. The area is closed to traffic and open to the public.
Last year's event, held two weeks after Sept. 11, 2001, raised over $358,000.
