REGINA - Kiss bassist Gene Simmons is helping to boost the health of children in Saskatchewan by auctioning off a custom 1956 Ford F-100 truck.
The truck, named Snakebit, will be up for sale this week at auctioneers Barrett-Jackson in Arizona, with proceeds going to the new Saskatchewan Children's Hospital.
The hospital is in Saskatoon, where Simmons' wife, Shannon Tweed, grew up.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says the highest a '56 Ford has sold for at Barrett-Jackson is $180,000.
He says everybody hopes this auction will raise even more, since the money is going for hospital equipment.
