Bidding continues through June 7 on all these prizes and more, in an online auction to benefit New York Restoration Project, the nonprofit New York City-based environmental organization founded by Bette Midler in 1995.
Midler said of the auction in a statement on its website, "It's just brimming with fabulous lots donated by dear friends who share my deep concern about the environment! Proceeds benefit New York Restoration Project (NYRP), a nonprofit I founded to clean & green New York City. We've turned 55 vacant lots into beautiful community gardens and planted more than 250,000 trees, and we're just getting started, so I hope you'll place your bid today!"
