Jay-Z has teamed up with the high-end charity auction site charitybuzz.com to give two fans the chance to hang out with him at an upcoming Knicks game at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The courtside seats are being valued at $20,000 but the current bid is $16,000. The auction will end on March 30th.
The money raised from this auction will benefit Manhattan’s Stephen Gaynor School for children with learning disabilities. Since Jay-Z is part owner of the New Jersey Nets, the fact that the school happens to be a Manhattan institution may explain why he has chosen to do this at a Knicks game rather than at a Nets match.
