26-year-old Crystal Harris has decided to put up her wedding gown and shoes for auction.
Harris tweeted yesterday, "I am auctioning my wedding dress with @charitybuzz to raise money for lymphoma in memory of Mary http://bit.ly/U5kS9y."
She describes the cause in the auction website, Charity Buzz, "Crystal is donating this dress in memory of her good friend, Mary O'Connor. Mary was Hugh Hefner's longtime assistant of 40 years, and is credited with helping Crystal reconcile with Hef last year, ultimately leading to their recent wedding. Money raised will benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in Mary's name."
The auction for the strapless, floor-length mermaid style Romona Keveza dress and Aruna Seth flats is set to end on February 11.
Both Harris and Hefner took her death rather hard.
The couple cited O'Connor as the main person who supported both of them to reunite for the past summer, and eventually married, The Huffington Post reported.
Hefner tweeted, "It's Mary O'Conner that brought Crystal Harris back. Crystal was miserable & said so. Mary told Crystal to write & tell me, which she did."
