Charitybuzz auctions all kinds of goods, none of them are the random thingamabobs you're used to bidding for on eBay: one of Lady Gaga's autographed pianos, seven days in a spa in the Maldives, or tennis lessons from John McEnroe, for instance. That's the "buzz" part; the charity comes in the fact that portions of every auction go to help... well, a given charity.
One of the auctions nearing its end is for tickets to two parties during the Cannes Film Festival: the Vanity Fair soiree hosted by magazine editor Graydon Carter and Gucci's Frida Giannini to honor Martin Scorsese, and The Weinstein Company party to fete the festival entrant Blue Valentine. At the time of writing the bidding was up to just $3,750. If you're going to be in Cannes anyway and you're free those nights, you'll be hard pressed to find a better use for a few grand. The auction benefits the Center for the Advancement of Women, but hurry – the auction ends tomorrow.
