Win a Chance to See Jay-Z at Carnegie Hall Via Charitybuzz

Last month, Jay-Z announced he'd be hosting two concerts at Carnegie Hall on Feb. 6 and 7 to benefit United Way of New York City and his personal foundation, the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.
This is the first time Blue Ivy's dad has played at Carnegie Hall and his first performance since the birth of his daughter. Tickets to the intimate affair are very limited, but for those with deep pockets, Charitybuzz.com—the leading destination for online charity auctions—is auctioning off two exclusive, VIP packages, including the opportunity to hang with the hip-hop mogul known as the Hova.
Fans can bid on the premium packages through Feb. 3 by going here. But a word of caution: shit ain't going to be cheap so if you've got expendable income and a trust fund or extra cash, it is going to a good cause.
Here are the details:
Get Up Close and Personal with Four Front Row Tickets: For fans who want to literally see the blood, sweat and tears that go into one of Jay's performances, the first package offers four front row tickets to the Feb. 7 concert plus pre-and-post-reception, where Jay will be in attendance, at Carnegie Hall. And that's not all. After the party is the after, after party at Jay's 40/40 Club where you and your guests will meet Mr. Carter himself. Think some big names will come out to support the new dad? This package will get you ever closer to the stars with a VIP pass. Go here to bid.
Ultimate Status Premium Box Seats: For the ultimate super-fans, one extra-special package will get you and seven friends a premium box at Carnegie Hall's first ever rap concert series. This package also includes access to the Hall's pre-and-post-reception where Jay will be in attendance, as well as tickets to the after, after party at Jay's 40/40 Club. Go here to bid.
Net proceeds from both auctions will benefit United Way of New York City and the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation, two organizations dedicated to fighting poverty by putting higher education within reach for low-income students.
Jay told the New York Times in December why supporting education in New York City is so important to him. "A ton of blue-collar jobs no longer exist, and the gap is wider than ever. Kids need to really know that and be prepared," he said in an interview at Carnegie Hall. "To really succeed in this new America they are going to need an education."
Do you have the means with which to make a bid? Or are you assed out?
