A gilded guitar, once owned by Prince, raised $100,000 in a charity auction recently.

The piece of music history was purchased by race car driver Lewis Hamilton. The proceeds will help fund art, education, and environmental projects for New York City’s Harlem Children's Zone.

Established in 1970, the non-profit organization supplies free educational assistance for children and families. Today the Harlem-based group serves over 8,000 children and 6,000 adults by offering anti-poverty programs.

Prince and Hamilton are no strangers to charitable deeds. Prince has been a supporter of other children organizations, including the Elevate Hope Foundation and The Bridge. Lewis Hamilton has been involved with Education Africa and Honeypot.
