Sarah Jessica Parker, Jon Stewart and Others Join Celebrity Charity Auction Benefitting Hurricane Sandy Relief
Hurricane Sandy carved a swath through the Eastern seaboard nearly a month ago, leaving billions of dollars of destruction in its wake. The good people at charityfolks.com have partnered with numerous celebrities, to raise funds for victims of the superstorm.

One example of a hot item currently being bid on is a sumptuous dinner for 6 at New York’s renowned Blue Hill Restaurant, with none other than Bravo’s Andy Cohen and Sarah Jessica Parker. However, if this piques your interest be prepared to dig-deep. At press-time, the current bid for said item was $18,000 US, with a next bid of $19,000, but who’s counting when everything is for a good cause like Community FoodBank of New Jersey.

“Both Sarah Jessica and Andy are New Yorkers, and happy to help support Hurricane Sandy Efforts. Not only will 100% of every dollar raised from this auction be deployed to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey to feed hungry and displaced families in New Jersey and New York, but you will also earn a serious ‘mazel’ for your good deeds from Andy for giving a lift to people who desperately need help,” stated charityfolks.com on their site.

Jon Stewart is doing his part to aid Hurricane Sandy victims, by auctioning off 4 VIP tickets for a taping of The Daily Show With Jon Stewart in NYC. Likewise, Chelsea Handler is also offering 4 VIP tickets to a taping of Chelsea Lately in Los Angeles.

Other celebrities participating in the auction include Selena Gomez, David Blaine, Alec and Billy Baldwin, just to name a few.
