The Royal Seat

From the AP:

The Broadway theater seats the president and first lady sat in last spring are being auctioned.

A theater-based charity, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will auction the seats Sunday in Manhattan.

The starting bid is $500.

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama saw Joe Turner's Come and Gone, August Wilson's Tony Award-winning play, at the Belasco Theatre in May. They were on a "date night" in the Big Apple.

VIP seats K101 and K102 each have a plaque on the back noting the occasion.

Now that's a fundraiser.

Bidding starts tomorrow!
