Even if a dazzling run by a future Hall of Famer doesn’t teach you some new moves during Super Bowl XXXVI, perhaps Justin Timberlake can. A dance lesson with the ‘NSYNC member is one of several prizes up for auction at a charity Super Bowl party Timberlake and girlfriend Britney Spears are hosting at New York’s Planet Hollywood on February 3, the day of the big game, according to an event spokesperson.
While watching the game on big-screen televisions strewn about the restaurant, guests will be able to bid on the dance class with Justin and the opportunity for a cameo role in an upcoming Spears movie, video or commercial, as well as items from New York Yankee Derek Jeter, golfer Tiger Woods, and Madonna.
Proceeds from the party will be donated to charities closest to the hosts: the Britney Spears Foundation, dedicated to benefiting needy children through peer relationships and participation in the performing arts, and the Justin Timberlake Foundation, whose goal is to promote music education by providing school grants.
Tickets for the party, priced at $1,000, are available by contacting the charities at (646) 437-3629.
Keeping in stride with Super Bowl XXXVI, taking place in New Orleans’ Louisiana Superdome, Planet Hollywood will be decorated to look like the city’s famed Bourbon Street and will serve Cajun food.
In other Spears news, the pop princess has struck a licensing agreement with Skechers, USA, which plans to issue a Britney Spears collection of “4 Wheelers” roller skates and accompanying accessories, according to a spokesperson for the footwear company. The three-year deal entitles Skechers to use Spears in advertising and marketing campaigns focused on the line. It’s not known when the skates are slated to roll into stores.
Spears also endorses the brand’s athletic footwear in international print ads, the result of another licensing deal with Skechers that is in place until June 2002.
