BON JOVI FEELING CHARITABLE
Jon Bon Jovi gave his all for Doug Flutie last weekend. The rocker let the Buffalo Bill use his new mansion in Middletown, NJ for a benefit for Flutie's autism foundation. The big-hearted Bon Jovi must be feeling flush after selling his Rumson, NJ spread for around $1.25 million -- because he and his band agreed to auction off two performances "at your barbecue, bar mitzvah or wedding." Two guests paid $60,000 each for gigs.
More than $500,000 was raised at the bash, where single-again Matthew McConaughey did his "EDtv" chicken dance with most of the ladies. Also on hand were Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora (packing up their L.A. house this week, so she can move to New York for "Spin City"), Chazz Palminteri, Jets coach Bill Parcells, Sean Landeta, Phil Simms and single-again Tico Torres, who came with Elizabeth Vargas.
