Treasured items of Broadway legend Carol Channing head to auction on June 17

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Fans and admirers of the legendary Broadway icon Carol Channing may bid on one-of-a-kind pieces from her remarkable Southern California estate on Thursday, June 17 at 10 a.m. PDT. The live online-only sale will feature treasured Tony, Golden Globe and lifetime achievement awards, as well as Broadway memorabilia, stage-worn costumes and a personal collection of original Al Hirschfeld drawings. Proceeds from the sale will benefit her alma mater Bennington College and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

Channing is best known for her enduring role in “Hello, Dolly” (1964), for which she won her first Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical and later performed major revival runs, appearing in the play at least 5,000 times during her lifetime. Rising to stardom on her dazzling smile and comedic timing, her stage credits also include “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” (1949), “Lorelei” (1974), “Sugar Babies” (1980) and “Jerry’s Girls” (1984).

Channing’s Broadway success led to many television appearances and movie roles, most notably, the film version of "Thoroughly Modern Millie" (1967), which landed her a Golden Globe Award. She was the recipient of many other prestigious honors, including two additional Tony Awards for Special Achievement (1968 and 1995) and the Oscar Hammerstein Award for Lifetime Achievement (2004). Distinguished as the first celebrity to perform at a Super Bowl halftime show in 1970, Channing was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 1981.

Each personally owned article from Channing’s estate captures a glimpse into her unique career, lifestyle and legacy. Highlighted pieces from the sale include a 1968 Tony Award for Distinguished Achievement in Theatre ($20,000-$30,000); 1968 Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture ($8,000-$12,000); original Hirschfeld drawings “George Burns and Carol Channing” ($10,000-$15,000) and “Carol Channing Holding a Crystal Ball from ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’” ($10,000-$15,000); and a 1967 Academy Award Certificate of Nomination ($600-$800).

“Abell is honored to offer a stunning collection from the premier Rancho Mirage residence of Carol Channing, admired as one of the most recognizable persons in the theatre world,” said Senior Vice-President of Business Development Joe Baratta. “This is an opportunity for admirers and collectors from around the globe to acquire an item she treasured during her extraordinary life, honor her storied career and continue her legacy of supporting numerous charities.”
