Might as well wrap up the day with an opportunity to have lunch with Derek Jeter. To benefit his Turn 2 Foundation, Jeter is auctioning lunch, four seats in his luxury suite, an autographed glove and more. Here’s the AP with the story (this is the ultimate in late-in-the-day laziness by the way; I really couldn’t have just written this myself?). Here’s a link to the auction itself.

Derek JeterNEW YORK (AP) — An online-only auction is offering a lucky bidder a chance to spend a day with Yankees great Derek Jeter.

All proceeds, minus Christie’s out-of-pocket sale expenses, will benefit Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation.

The charity supports programs that promote leadership and healthy lifestyles for youth. Besides New York, it benefits kids in his native Michigan and in his current hometown, Tampa, Fla.

The sale runs through Dec. 17.

Since 1996, the foundation has awarded over $18 million in grants.

The opening bid is $90,000. It includes lunch for four with Jeter. The winner also gets four seats in Jeter’s luxury suite during a Yankee game; and an autographed, game-used glove.

Jeter says the auction will help expand the foundation’s outreach and help young people “reach their full potential.”
