GETTYOprah is leaving Chicago and auctioning off valuables before her big move to Hollywood.

You can get your hands on some of the OWN CEO’s valuables for as little as $50 and help educate African girls in the process.

According to NY Daily News,  550 items are up for grabs, inclusive of  English, French and continental furniture and decorative pieces, paintings, prints, drawings, porcelain, crystal, silver, memorabilia, clothing and accessories.

All proceeds will go toward Oprah's Leadership Academy Foundation, that aids the school she started in South Africa, the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.

"This is property from her Water Tower apartment in Chicago," Leslie Hindman of Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, told People. She is handling the auction taking place on April 25 in Leslie Hindman Auctioneer's Chicago saleroom.

"People love her," Hindman said. "People will be very, very excited to own something that she owned."

As previously reported, Winfrey, 61, is closing Harpo Studios after 26 years, laying off 200 employees, and moving all productions to the new Los Angeles headquarters.

While transition—especially in Oprah’s case—is never easy, she said, “The time had come to downsize this part of the business and to move forward. It will be sad to say goodbye, but I look ahead with such a knowing that what the future holds is even more than I can see."
