Chairman and CEO Brian France and his wife, Amy, ponied up $300,000 Wednesday night during a “Stand Up for Heroes” event at the Theater at Madison Square Garden, benefiting the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
According to a NASCAR news release, the Frances and another party bid a total of $600,000 for a collection of items and experiences with the legendary singer.
Springsteen will be providing a homemade lasagna dinner, a one-hour guitar lesson and a motorcycle ride in Springsteen’s side car with the The Boss driving. The fun will take place at Springsteen’s home, although a date was not announced.
