The rights to photograph Miss Universe 2007, Riyo Mori, 23, were auctioned off on Yahoo! Japan to raise money for charity last month, with the winning bid reaching 3.526 million yen, organizers said Monday.
Mori is a goodwill ambassador for the charity “BEYOND THE BORDER PROJECT” for Doctors Without Borders, which organized the auction.
The final bid price closed at 10 a.m. on Sunday.
The bidder, who has not been named, will photograph Mori at a studio in Tokyo prepared by Doctors Without Borders, after discussing with the staff how Mori should be dressed for theoccasion.
Prior to the auction closing, Mori said: "I wanted to participate in an activity that would save lives, even though I'm not a doctor or a nurse."© Japan Today
