Jay-Z and Coldplay Hold Auction for Sandy Hook Victims

Proceeds from VIP ticket sales for NYE show will go to Newtown Youth & Family Services.

Published December 21, 2012

Jay-Z and Coldplay are teaming up for more than a concert this New Year's Eve. The rap and rock superstars are arranging to donate funds for relief in Newtown, Conn., where a suicidal gunman massacred 26 children and teachers a week ago today, the New York Post reports.

To raise the money, the artists are auctioning off four VIP tickets to their concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Dec. 31. The winner of the auction will also get the chance to meet Jay and Coldplay backstage after the show. Proceeds will be donated to Newtown Youth & Family Services, a local nonprofit mental health clinic.

Bidding for the show can be done at Charitybuzz.com. The auction ends the afternoon of Dec. 27.
