LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hundreds of personal items, including antiques, artwork and furniture once owned by Bob Hope and his wife, Dolores, will be auctioned to benefit a Southern California charity.

The Daily News of Los Angeles reports (http://bit.ly/11tF2Zk) proceeds from the sale Saturday will help the family service center at St. Charles Borromeo Church in North Hollywood, where Dolores Hope was a member for 70 years.

The couple's daughter, Linda Hope, says memorabilia from Bob Hope's long show business career will also be up for sale.

Prices will range from $10 to several hundred dollars an item.

An auction of additional property from the couple's Toluca Lake estate will be announced by Julien's Auctions of Beverly Hills later this year.

Dolores Hope died in 2011. Bob Hope died in 2003.
