The Irish Mirror revealed the details of The Edge’s winning bid at the Make A Wish charity auction in Dublin. He bid EUR85,000 to see that the dream of a four-year-old girl with neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer, is fulfilled.
Alice Dillon’s dream is to be turned into a princess for a day. With the money raised at the auction, she will dressed in a pink gown and tiara, collected by a horse-drawn carriage, and taken to a castle, where she will be given a party for her and her friends.
To ensure that enough money was raised to make Alice’s dream come true, The Edge bid against himself several times and forced the price to go higher.
