In recent months, celebrities have been raising awareness for the relief and development organization Oxfam by collaborating on eBay auctions for things like Shakira's clothes and radios signed by Tom Hanks, as well as tickets to the red carpet premieres of movies like Mamma Mia! and He's Just Not That Into You. Just a few days ago, a woman from Japan had the highest bid for a trip to the Manhattan premiere of the Sex and the City movie. The bidding started at $0.99 and the winning bid was for $52,100, all of which will go to Oxfam.
As the winner, she receives a pair of tickets to the premiere, arriving via chauffeured car service after having her hair and makeup done at Manhattan’s Prive Salon. At the premiere, she'll have an on-camera "meet and greet" with Kristin Davis. And she also gets a pair of Jimmy Choos in her size.
I'd say this is a pretty sweet package. Of course, most of us don't have $52,000 to spend on an online auction for movie premiere passes, but I could definitely envision mega-fans of Sex and the City paying some hefty sums for this kind of thing. What would be your cutoff for a package like this? To walk the red carpet, if not with then at least near the glamorous ladies of Sex and the City and to attend the premiere of the film with them?
