$100K definitely is something to kiss to. Swizz Beatz and Bronx Charter School for the Arts auctioned off art at New York’s hotspot Marquee on Wednesday.

Celebs & guests, while sipping on Ciroc & chowing down on hors d’oeuvres, participated in silent and live auctions featuring original art work by Bronx Arts elementary student artists. There was a presentation of 20 new ESP electric/acoustic guitars, donated to the school by the Traveling Guitar Foundation. And an autographed, original Rolling Stones, electric guitar was auctioned and sold for $5,000.
