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!

Hey, want to feel old? Twenty-five years ago, Paul Simon released his now trademark album, Graceland! Yeah, let that sink in.

Course, a lot of you were probably just born when then album came out, so you, it doesn't mean much! LOLz!

Anyway, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the album, Paul is planning a tour for next year that is currently in the early stages of planning. We don't know where he is going to go and when, but we do know that he will also be releasing a new "Graceland" box set with Sony Legacy the will release in the late spring of next year.

Watch Paul Simon Of Simon & Garfunkel Perform A Haunting Version Of Sound Of Silence At The 9/11 Memorial

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

We couldn't think of a more appropriate tribute to those who lost their lives so tragically ten years ago.

Please watch Paul Simon, of Simon & Garfunkel, perform a heartwrenching and somber acoustic performance of the classic Sound of Silence at Ground Zero today, in honor of the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center (above).

Powerful. Moving. And undeniably beautiful.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who lost a loved one that day.

May they R.I.P. and always be remembered.
