bought an expensive pet while in NYC Thursday evening, but it was all for a good cause (October 25, 2012).
Just last year, Ursh attempted to win a puppy during the 2011 Pencils of Promise benefit auction event, but he says he gave it up to a Cancer survivor who was bidding as well. In return for his generosity, she named her pooch “Usher”.
At this year’s event, Usher decided to go hard in the paint and was determined to bring a cute puppy home.
Usher reportedly offered an initial bid of $10,000 but was forced upward after being outbid. He finally upped the ante and ditched out $12,000 smakaroos for the cute copper-colored pup he immediately named “Poppy.”
Raymond shared his enthusiasm with his boo, Grace Miguel, who was seated by his side.
The happy couple presented the $12,000 pooch to Miguel’s teen daughter, who posted photos of her new family pet.
