CANNES, France (AP) - The celebrity charity car rally “Cash & Rocket” roared into Cannes Tuesday, with its band of stars that this year included actress Michelle Rodriguez, model Jodie Kidd and singer Natalie Imbruglia.

Seventy women are selected each year from the worlds of fashion, film, music and art to travel 1,000 miles across European cities in a glamorous convoy of 35 red cars.

The rally began in Paris, and went on to Lyon and Milan to arrive at the finish line in Cannes - 1,067 Miles (1,717 km) and five days later.

This year, it’s to raise money for charities Oafrica, Sumbandila and Shine on Sierra Leone - which give aid to poor women and children in the developing world.
