WEST WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — A silent auction to raise money for charity and celebrate a Rhode Island town’s centennial is getting some help from singer Taylor Swift.
The Providence Journal reports (http://bit.ly/15tLi7U ) that Swift donated an autographed acoustic guitar to be auctioned off Sept. 20 during West Warwick’s centennial ball.
Proceeds from the auction will support a local scholarship and efforts to build a memorial to the victims of the 2003 Station nightclub fire in West Warwick.
Swift owns a beach home in Westerly, about 30 miles southwest of West Warwick.
Former West Warwick Mayor Michael Levesque is helping to organize the centennial ball and says he contacted Swift’s publicist to see if she would help the charitable effort. He calls the donation “very thoughtful” and says it should raise a “significant” amount of money.
