Chevy Chase Green Auction opens bids to spend the day with your fave celeb! November 6, 2009

This November, bid to spend some time with your favorite celebrity while helping communities and schools become greener–and stronger! Chevy Chase and his wife Jayni Chase, who has over 20 years of experience with Green education and environmental community action, are tirelessly dedicated to providing underserved communities with the tools and resources necessary to create healthy learning environments and greener neighborhoods. The 6th Annual Chevy Chase Green Auction benefits GREEN Community Schools, whose mission is to create long-term holistic partnerships between the school, local community residents, stakeholders, available resources and families to ensure that the community is environmentally aware and able to successfully practice and promote sustainability in their lives, communities and globally.

Please be warned, these amazing experiences pose a sizeable bidding war. Who can afford to spend as much as $15,000 or more on a single day? Certainly, not only those with tens of thousands of dollars of dsiposable income will reap the rewards? I would be interested to hear from philanthropic companies who are bidding and will award the experience to one lucky staff or community member, or any other person who is somehow involved with the auction who did not necessarily make the winning bid.

The faboulous list of auction items is seemingly endless. Here are simply a few highlights:
