Eddie Van Halen Donating Guitar For Charity Auction

Eddie Van Halen donated one of his guitars to a charity auction benefiting a group called Last Chance for Animals. The instrument will be sold during a live auction for the organization on October 26.

The event will also honor the efforts of photographer Christopher Ameruoso and "Vegan Of The Year" Phil Collen of Def Leppard.

All of the proceeds from the auction will benefit Last Chance for Animals, which works to end animal cruelty through educational initiatives.

"LCA . . . opposes the use of animals in food and clothing production, scientific experimentation, and entertainment. Instead, it promotes a cruelty-free lifestyle and the ascription of rights to non-human beings," the org says in a statement on their website.

According to the Van Halen News Desk, the guitar Eddie donated was a signed EVH Stripes Series.
