Charlize TheronCharlize Theron hosted her annual Africa Outreach Project Benefit at The Darby restaurant in New York on Monday and one winner paid $20,000 to take her to a Lakers game. Originally, the auction was just a pair of courtside tickets, but Theron volunteered to accompany the winner.

"The bets got larger and larger. What guy wouldn't want to be sitting court side next to Charlize? She's gorgeous," an event organizer tells PopEater.

Proceeds from the evening will be used to fund work to improve the lives of children and communities in South Africa, with a special focus on combating HIV and AIDS.
