Bono, designers to raise AIDS funds at NYC auction

NEW YORK (AP) — The design and music worlds are coming together to help fight AIDS in Africa.

Apple chief designer Sir Jonathan Ive and industrial designer Marc Newson are collaborating with rocker Bono. They’re producing 40 original designs to benefit The Global Fund.

The event is called the (RED) auction. It’s Nov. 23 at Sotheby’s New York.

The highlights include a Leica (LY’-kuh) digital rangefinder camera and a Neal Feay (fay) Studios aluminum desk.

Other unique items include a customized white and red Steinway parlor grand piano and a 2012 Range Rover.

There’s also a one-of-a kind- pair of Apple EarPods in solid rose gold.

Sotheby’s will hold an exhibit of the items Nov. 18-22.

Bono founded the auction in 2006 to raise funds to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria.
