The most popular place to get lasagna in South Jersey isn’t at the Olive Garden on Route 35, but rather Bruce Springsteen’s house.
Last night, Springsteen participated in a charity auction as part of the 8th Annual Stand Up For Heroes charity concert in New York City, with all proceeds benefiting military service members and their families after they return home. Among the items up for bid? A day with Bruce Springsteen, including a one-hour guitar lesson, a ride in the side car of his motorcycle, and — yes, lasagna dinner at his house.
The winning bid was a cool $300,000: Hopefully it didn’t come from my mother after putting our house up for sale.
Springsteen raised an additional $300,000 by auctioning off two of his guitars and also entertained the audience in attendance with a five-song acoustic performance. Below, watch video of the auction and a few of his performances.
