	SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Sharon Stone helped raise $150,000 for  
housing for the homeless, throwing in one of her Valentino gowns, a 
kiss on the cheek and a ring off her finger to raise the bids. 
	With a gospel choir punctuating her calls with ``Hallelujah!''  
Stone made a surprise offer by auctioning off an 18-carat jewel she 
was wearing. It brought $3,600. 
	While selling Robin Williams' bathrobe, Stone goosed the bidding  
Friday night by offering to throw in a peck on the cheek. The robe 
fetched $650. 
	A Hollywood VIP premiere for two started at $400. When bidding  
reached $5,000 Stone promised the loan of a Valentino gown. ``You 
can keep the dress!'' she called out as bidding topped $7,000.
