Hollywood icon Chevy Chase is putting these once-in-a-lifetime experiences and many more on the auction block for the 7th Annual Chevy Chase GREEN Schools auction, an online holiday auction featuring incredible opportunities to raise funds for GREEN Community Schools, an initiative of the MGR Foundation chaired by Chase’s wife Jayni Chase, a committed environmentalist.
“We’re thrilled to offer these amazing, exclusive opportunities,” said Jayni Chase. “The funds we raise will provide public schools in under-served communities with the tools and resources necessary for transformative changes, creating healthier classrooms while preparing our kids for the realities of the 21st century.”
Experiences up for auction on charitybuzz to benefit GREEN Schools include the chance to see Paul McCartney at the Apollo and hang with him backstage, an intimate lunch with National Lampoon’s “The Griswolds” – Chevy Chase and Bevery D’Angelo, VIP tickets to Saturday Night Live courtesy of Seth Meyers, a tennis lesson with John McEnroe, a day on the set of NBC’s The Office, a two week internship at Rolling Stone Magazine, the chance to attend Robert Downey Jr's next film premiere, and dozens of other terrific gifts for the holiday season.
“Beverly and I can’t wait to sit down with the highest bidder for a real Griswaldian experience, a brunch that will hopefully raise thousands for this important cause,” said Chevy Chase. “Sustainability is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and I don’t think you’ll find a more enjoyable way to do some good than winning one of these ridiculously great experiences.”
Jayni and Chevy Chase have a simple goal: To ensure that kids live well and make smart choices. GREEN Community Schools (GCS) transforms school buildings into centers for green development, spreading environmental literacy and awareness. GREEN Community Schools’ mission is to create long-term holistic partnerships between the school, local community residents, stakeholders, resources and families to ensure that the community is environmentally aware and able to successfully practice and promote sustainability in their lives, communities and around the world.
