Have an extra $125-$1000 you want to do something awesome with?

Well you should probably get tickets for the benefit marking the 25th anniversary milestone of the Children's Health Fund:

Over the past 25 years, Children’s Health Fund has expanded nationwide to become the primary source of medical care for thousands of homeless and low-income families and now has 25 programs operating in 17 states and Washington, DC.

Pretty much ALL the celebs will be there (including Tina Fey and Tom Hanks), and Sting will be joining Paul Simon!

The tickets available to the public are SUPER limited, which makes sense, because this is a crazy once-in-a-lifetime thing!

AND it's for a great cause!
