Bruce Springsteen has agreed to participate in a fundraiser for Los Angeles’ Geffen Playhouse in which the winner will get to “hang” with him in Asbury Park and take photos with him at The Stone Pony.
According to the contest’s page on Omaze.com, the winner and a friend will:
• “Walk the Asbury Park Boardwalk with Bruce Springsteen and hear some incredible stories from the legendary storyteller”
• “Take photos together in front of The Stone Pony”
• “Get flown out to New Jersey and put up in a 4-star hotel”
No donation is required to enter. However, those looking to enter multiple times can buy packages: $10 for 100 entries, $25 for 250 entries and so on, up to $5,000 for 50,000 entries.
(Note: To enter for free, click on “Free Alternate Method of Entry.”)
The deadline to enter is Feb. 18, and the winner will be announced on or around March 4.
In addition to presenting plays, the not-for-profit Geffen Playhouse offers programs for high school students, seniors, veterans and low-income community members.
