LONDON - Hollywood actress Charlize Theron has auctioned off a date with her for charity.
The 35-year-old actress, who is enjoying her single status ever since splitting from boyfriend Stuart Townsend earlier this year, auctioned off a day with her to attend a Los Angeles Lakers basketball game, at a fundraiser for her charitable organisation in New York.
“All the men in the room were doubling the bids on the courtside Lakers tickets if Charlize attended the game with them. She agreed to attend for $20,000,” showbizspy.com quoted a source, who attended the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project dinner and auction, as saying.
The “Monster” actress’ charity aims to create safer and healthier lives for at-risk children and communities in South Africa, especially those affected by HIV/AIDS.
