Mets fans looking to meet Matt Harvey are in luck, but it's going to cost them. Two chances to meet the "Dark Knight" himself at the "Night with Matt Harvey" event in June are up for auction on Charitybuzz. Winners will have their picture taken with Harvey and get a signed piece of memorabilia. The auctions benefit the Global Connections for Women Foundation and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The Global Connections for Women Foundation helps empower women worldwide and fight gender inequality. The charity lists things like "improving maternal health" and "achieving universal primary education" among its goals. How the charity is connected to Harvey is unclear, but they offed a similar package for auction last year.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation should be familiar to many. The famed charity grants "wishes" to children suffering from life-threatening illnesses.
The auction winners, along with three friends, will also be able to enjoy an "open bar, passed hors d’oeuvres, a question-and-answer session, and baseball personality as emcee" at the event. The packages' estimated values are listed at $2,500.
At the time of this story's writing, bidding had reached $3,250 on the Make-A-Wish auction and $500 on the Global Connections for Women auction. The Make-A-Wish auction closes February 11. The Global Connections for Women auction continues through February 24.
