Actor and philanthropist Sean Penn cast a pre-annualGolden Globes Fundraising for his charity – formerly J / S HRO, his new organization now exists as CORE.

Among the hot items being auctioned, there was a private dinner with Andres with a performance of Yo-Yo Ma. During the auction, Cooper jumped and offered to assist to soften the pot, which allowed to sell the package at $ 200,000.
