JIMMY FALLON
on the Mario Batali Foundation and Mick Rock:
"The Mario Batali foundation was established to ensure that kids had enough food in their stomachs. It should really come as no surprise to anyone that knows Mario that he would want to do something to make sure that kids had the energy to dream big. Mario believes that if you want to be a rock star, you can. If you want to be a rock star chef, you can. If you want to rock some orange crocs, maybe you shouldn't. That's his thing.

"Anyone who's ever been lucky enough to be around Mario knows how much he loves music. Even when he's cooking he can't help playing air guitar when he hears one of his favorite songs. Well, this auction combines the best of both of these worlds. Its a chance to benefit the Mario Batali Foundation by purchasing a rare print of a never before published photo of David Bowie from 1973, by legendary photographer Mick Rock. You can't put a price on something like this, but let's try. Get out those checkbooks everyone. This is for a really great cause...

"Mario Batali's Foundation has just announced a grant to create and furnish a library in NYC (site TBD) for low-income and at-risk children. Help build a library! Feed their heads!"
