Last month, Jay-Z announced plans of performing at NYC’s Carnegie Hall for two concerts on February 6th and 7th to benefit the United Way of New York City and his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation. Before the concerts goes underway, fans can enter a chance to win front row tickets and premium box seats for Hov’s first time at the legendary venue, plus a chance to meet him in person.
From now through February 3rd, fans can bid at Charity Buzz for the following premium packages to the February 7th concert date:

After the party is the after, after party at Jay’s 40/40 Club where the winner and guests will meet Mr. Carter himself. This package will get the luckiest bidder even closer to the stars with a VIP pass. Bid here.
Offers ultimate status premium box seats for the winner and seven friends. This package also includes access to the Hall’s pre and post-reception where Jay will be in attendance, as well as tickets to the after, after party at Jay’s 40/40 Club. Bid here.
The proceeds from both auctions will benefit the United Way of New York City and the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation, two organizations dedicated to fighting poverty by putting higher education within reach for low-income students.
Jay-Z commented on the upcoming shows stating during a press conference last month explaining, “The concert is going to be a fun [and] a beautiful experience but, it underscores the story on why we’re doing this. [These shows] will be very important in the difference it will make to children’s lives.”
The historic event will take place on February 6 at 8 pm and February 7th at 9:30 pm. —Ralph Bristout
