Who wouldn’t rather be on a beach in St. Thomas than bracing for winter? Or get on the court at the Michael Jordan Fantasy Basketball Camp? Maybe see your next Yankees game from the best seats in the house, or be part of the “Farewell to the Captain” event with Derek Jeter?
On Monday, Nov. 10, at the Hard Rock Café Times Square, all these things and more will be up for bids during the 25th annual Celebrity Sports Auction, benefitting the Starlight Children’s Foundation NY*NJ*CT. Not only will you be able to buy experiences with New York sports personalities, but many of them will be in attendance including the Knicks’s John Starks, the Jets’ Chad Cascadden, Anders Lee of the New York Islanders and the Rangers’ Adam Graves.
Proceeds from the event, which will include a live and silent auction, will go to support thousands of children who suffer from critical, chronic and life-threatening illnesses. Tickets are $125 at the door, or by calling Christina Zaferiou at 212-354-2878 and online, where you can also bid on the items offered at the event.
