Maria Menounos Auctions Emmy Dress for Charity

“Extra” host Maria Menounos is auctioning off the gorgeous blue Oliver Tolentino dress she wore to the 2012 Emmy Awards to support the Kibera School for Girls.

All proceeds will go to the African school in Nairobi, in association with Shining Hope for Communities, which, explained Menounos, strives to bring “gender equality and combat urban poverty” through tuition-free schools for girls.

Menounos, who visited the school last year, said, "I will never forget walking down the cold concrete-filled hallways only to hear the little girls in school singing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’... or introducing themselves in class saying, 'My name is faith, and I am a girl and I am important.’ Please join me in making them more important.”
