Hollywood actress Charlize Theron has auctioned off an evening of her company to raise money for charity.
The Monster star offered herself up as a prize at a fundraising event for her Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project at The Darby restaurant in New York City on Monday (06Dec10).
Guests were bidding on a pair of Los Angeles Lakers basketball tickets when Theron decided to make the lot more interesting by volunteering to accompany the winner to the game.
The winning bidder paid a generous $20,000 (£13,300) for the prize, reports OKMagazine.com.
Proceeds from the event will benefit children and communities in Theron's native South Africa.
