SHARON, OZZY OSBOURNE Charity Sale Reaps $800,000

Reuters reports that Ozzy Osbourne and his wife/manager Sharon raised more than $800,000 for charity after heavy metal enthusiasts turned out en masse for their Beverly Hills-style garage sale, auction manager Darren Julien said on Saturday.

Bidders at the auction, which benefited the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Foundation, ran the gamut from metal heads to the high-brow.

The lots included knickknacks and furniture from the Osbournes' former Beverly Hills mansion, which served as the backdrop for their family's MTV reality television series "The Osbournes".
