Bid Yourself a Pricey Private with John McEnroe. Do it for the Mother.

John McEnroe How much would you pay for a one-hour private tennis lesson? Rates run $30 to $120 around the country depending on pro ability, rep and region. How about if your pro was John McEnroe?

McEnroe has donated an hour-long private lesson to raise funds for Christie’s Green Auction: A Bid to Save the Earth, an auction for the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day.  The highest bidder will have the opportunity to learn straight from the master, in NYC. Cool ehh?! The hour is valued at $20,000! Man that's a pricey private; but it's for the mother, mother earth and it's almost mother's day so do it if you've got the cash.

Bidding is open until May 6th 1:20 PM EDT on charitybuzz.

The auction item is part of "Christie's Green Auction: A Bid to Save the Earth,"a collaboration of leaders from the worlds of art, business, politics, media, fashion and celebrity for the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day.   Proceeds benefit 4 NGOs: Central Park Conservancy, Conservation International, NRDC and Oceana.
