TAKEN TO HEART: Pippa Middleton is auctioning a limited-edition printed scarf and dress, designed in collaboration with Tabitha Webb, in support of the British Heart Foundation, of which she is an ambassador.
Middleton has teamed up with the foundation for its Roll Out the Red auction that aims to raise money for research into heart and circulatory disease. An online auction launched today on the event’s Web site, and a charity ball will also take place on Feb. 11, where Middleton plans to give an opening speech.
The scarf and dress designs date from last summer. They sold out shortly after she wore them to a Wimbledon tennis match that she attended with her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge. The sales of those items also went toward the British Heart Foundation.
Middleton was named an ambassador of the BHF in 2014, with the role of raising awareness of heart health among women and heart disease prevention through physical activity and healthy eating.
Tickets for the Roll Out the Red charity ball are available to purchase online for 250 pounds, or $360.
