CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - July 03, 2013) -  As part of its ongoing efforts to help disadvantaged children throughout Latin America, the Maestro Cares Foundation today announced a partnership with global charity auction site Charitybuzz. The featured online auction includes a VIP concert experience and a Meet-and-Greet backstage with Grammy Award winner and Maestro Cares co-founder Marc Anthony, who will be kicking off his highly anticipated U.S. tour, "Vivir Mi Vida." The once-in-a-lifetime experience and auction, valued at $25,000, is open until July 11, 2013 at Charitybuzz.com.

"I'm delighted to meet with supporters of the Maestro Cares Foundation," said Anthony.
