NEW YORK (AP) — WWE is joining with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Hollywood celebrities and professional athletes to launch Superstars for Sandy Relief.
Fans can bid on hundreds of items in an online auction, including attending a NASCAR race with WWE superstar John Cena. The auction begins Monday and closes April 9.
Paul Levesque, executive vice president of talent and live events, says he can’t think of a better way to celebrate WWE’s annual WrestleMania event than using the group’s global reach to assist those in need.
Wrestlemania will be held April 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
There will also be a Superstars for Sandy Relief reception at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on April 4, hosted by Sean “Diddy” Combs.
