Hot on the heels of Christie's Earth Day auction, which helped raise millions for various environmental initiatives, Bette Midler's nonprofit has announced a similar celeb-fueled fundraiser to help celebrate 15 years of improving New York City's environment.
The online auction for the New York Restoration Project is happening now through June 7 and features items from Cher, John Stamos, John McEnroe, Rod Stewart, Al Roker, Alice Cooper, Rob Thomas, Five For Fighting, Jimmy Kimmel, Michael Strahan, Curt Menefee, Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson Kristin Chenoweth, Sean Hayes and more.
According to the release, music lovers can choose between meeting Cher at her Caesars Palace show, golfing with rock legend Alice Cooper in Scottsdale or being charmed by Rod Stewart at his O2 performance in London.
Tennis fans are sure to love the opportunity to play a match with legend John McEnroe.
My personal favorite? Joining Al Roker on "The Today Show" for a weather segment. Life would be complete.
All bidding can be done through the Charity Folks website — with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Midler's efforts to improve and restore the natural beauty of New York City.
