NEW YORK, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Country music superstar Sara Evans is playing an important role in combating eating disorders this year by serving as chair of the 3rd Annual Every BODY is Beautiful Online Auction, an exciting fundraising program currently underway by the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).
Open to the public, the online auction can be accessed by going to http://www.nationaleatingdisorders.cmarket.com. There are more than two hundred items to bid on, including tickets to an upcoming Sara Evans concert; priceless guitars autographed by musicians like Bucky Covington, Eric Clapton and James Brown; and lots of other memorabilia from Country Music Association award winners Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley and others. The auction includes many great getaways, memorable dining experiences, art, clothing, jewelry, and much more. NEDA will be accepting bids for auction items through December 2, 2007.
Ms. Evans affiliated with NEDA last year as a means to promote both her interest in educating women about the importance of a positive body image and to generate awareness about eating disorders, which currently affect 10 million women and one million men every year in the U.S. She serves as a NEDA Ambassador, working tirelessly to help the organization with its education, research and advocacy efforts.
"I am committed to helping people with eating disorders," said Ms. Evans, who was named Top Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music and is a platinum-selling recording artist. "Too many young women fall victim to the idea that only thin is beautiful and end up with debilitating illnesses. I want people to know that eating disorders are preventable and curable, especially when treated in the early stages."
