Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Nov. 25 (ANI): To commemorate its tenth anniversary in India, Hard Rock Cafe teams with Bollywood celebs to empower underprivileged children to pursue their music dreams.

Some of the celebrities have contributed to the charity auction slated for November 30.

The brand will unfurl the spirit of rock and roll, with a legendary evening of cocktails, music and a charity 'Bid and Buy'. Music, Fiesta and Goodwill will set the mood for a thrilling anniversary celebration.

Boasting of an impressive collection of pieces that make for a collectors' grab, the auction will feature a plethora of keepsakes from legendary artists like A.R Rahman, Shankar Mahadevan and Usha Uthup. While globally famed songstress, star and 'In My City' hitmaker Priyanka Chopra has elatedly donated her most treasured relic to the auction, bestselling musicians and bands of the 80's and 90's like A Sivamani, Euphoria and Parikrama have also enthusiastically participated in the same.

The Harmonium I am giving away was bought many years back and Ustad Ghulam Ali Khan Sahab personally came along to the shop with me, selected it and played it there itself. It is one of the most memorable experiences of my life. This musical instrument holds special importance in my life and I feel extremely happy parting from it as it is going towards under privileged children. His blessings get passed on with it so it feels great!"

Pop sensation, Usha Uthup, said "I am so happy to donate a little something of myself, to the l0th anniversary auction. It's a great feeling of pride for me to give away one of my favorite Kanjeevaram sari and one of my first vocal microphones for Hard Rock Cafe's 10th anniversary auction. It indeed feels wonderful to spread happiness & love through music. Here's wishing a happy 10 to Hard Rock Cafe lndia!" (ANI)
