Star-Studded Auction to Benefit CWLA's Work with Hurricane Victims

10/6/2005:   All proceeds from a live celebrity auction October 15 and an online auction on uBid.com are slated to go to CWLA and two other charities locally focused on the areas devastated by the hurricanes.

"Some of the largest celebrities, athletes, and corporations in the world have already pledged their support and are digging deep to donate unique items that will bring in the highest possible bids," says Bob Tomlinson, President and CEO of uBid Inc., a leading online auction marketplace.

The event on October 15 will include special musical performances and a live auction at the Empire Ballroom, a new nightclub in Las Vegas. It will also kick off the online auction on uBid.com, running through the end of October. CWLA, the Brett Favre Fourward Mississippi Relief Fund, and Rock Works (in association with Ashton Kutcher) will split 100% of the proceeds.

Donated items include:
  • walk-on roles on the television shows Scrubs, Arrested Development, and That 70s Show;

  • snowboarding with Justin Timberlake;

  • partying with Parris Hilton on New Year's Eve in Miami at Club Paris;

  • codirecting a segment of PUNK'D with Ashton Kutcher;

  • a foursome of golf with Brett Favre; and

  • a private poker lesson with Annie Duke.
