One lucky Paul McCartney fan had his Christmas wish granted late last week! The fan won the chance to meet Sir Paul McCartney backstage at tonight's special and exclusive show at the iconic Apollo Theater in New York. The chance to meet McCartney was auctioned for a whopping $130,000 after 10 days of frenzied bidding at leading charity auction site charitybuzz.com, making it the highest grossing celebrity package of the season. The auction comes on the heels of an $80,000 bid to meet Twilight star Robert Pattinson earlier this week.
What does that mean? Brits command a big auction take and that a former Beatle has more appeal than Edward Cullen. Or as I like to refer to him as: Eddie Culls.
As part of the exclusive Paul McCartney package, the winner and a guest will have the rare opportunity to see McCartney and his band's soundcheck prior to the Apollo show, meet McCartney and snap photos before he takes the stage, as well as enjoy VIP seats for the performance. The experience was auctioned as part of Chevy Chase's GREEN Schools Auction and benefits The GREEN Community Schools Model Initiative, which works to provide our nation's children with healthy schools and sustainable lives.
The show is part of Paul McCartney's sold-out Christmas tour, which will take him across Britain in addition to his New York performance. It marks the first time the legendary Beatle will play the Apollo Theater.
For those still looking to make their holiday dreams come true, charitybuzz's Gifts That Give Twice Auction features VIP experiences with Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, U2's The Edge, Ne-Yo, Usher, Prince, Shakira, Bon Jovi and many more acclaimed artists all to benefit charity. Hundreds of experiences with top music artists and celebrities are open for bidding through December 21st at www.charitybuzz.com/Holiday2010.
