Teen heartthrob Zac Efron won’t just be breaking hearts in New York this month — he’ll be breaking bread, too.
The azure-eyed actor will be filming his latest movie, “Are We Officially Dating?” Thursday on Carroll Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues, Park Slope Stoop first reported. The romantic comedy, about three guy friends who vow to give up on relationships, is expected to be filming in the neighborhood and elsewhere in the city through Jan. 24.
Fans with a burning desire to meet the “High School Musical” star can bid on a lunch date with Efron on the movie’s set. The chance to rub elbows with the actor is being auctioned off by Charitybuzz, an online fundraising business that brings in cash for nonprofits by selling up-close-and-personal experiences with celebs.
Charitybuzz recently auctioned off four tickets and a backstage meeting with Jay-Z and Coldplay on New Year’s Eve at the Barclays Center. The winning bid of $17,500 benefited Newtown Youth & Family Services in Newtown, Conn.
“It’s all about access — that’s our niche area,” Charitybuzz spokeswoman Glenda Felden said. “It’s exclusive access you can’t find anywhere else.”
In Efron’s case, the winning bidders will spend 60 to 90 minutes with the star, including 45 minutes for lunch on the set. The four winners will also watch a scene being filmed. The lucky bidders are allowed to pose for a snapshot with Efron and can bring “something small” for Efron to autograph, according to Charitybuzz.
Proceeds from the auction will support the nonprofit Actors Fund, a national organization that serves people in the entertainment industry. The suggested price for lunch with Efron is $10,000, and bids close on Jan. 8. As of Tuesday afternoon, seven bidders had entered the auction and the high bid was $4,000.
Experiences with Efron have fetched a pretty penny for Charitybuzz in the past. In November, an hourlong one-on-one meeting with Efron sold for $8,500 to benefit Communities in Schools, Felden said.
“We’ve had great experiences with Zac in the past,” Felden said. “He’s so philanthropic.”
A local organization is helping clothe families in need this holiday, and thanks to a celebrity with local roots, some will be sporting his look.
Arroyo Grande-native Zac Efron recently paid a visit to the Children’s Rescue Network of the Central Coast which is located in Arroyo Grande. Lisa Ray, the organization’s president, says the movie star donated three hundred articles of clothing.
Ray says local children who are in need of clothes will get the opportunity to choose one item from the star’s wardrobe. “He loves the program,” said Ray. “That’s why he came and donated his clothes. He really wanted to give back to the community and do something for the kids in need here.”

When crew members heard “cut” on set of the Zac Efron drama “The Lucky One,” which wrapped a 10-week New Orleans shoot on Tuesday (Dec. 21), they took it to heart. And so as actor-heartthrob Efron heads home for the holidays, he is leaving behind a much balder crew base than that which he found while adding cash to the coffers of a New Orleans charity.
In addition to visiting the gym regularly to bulk up for the role and growing a dashing chin of stubble, Efron had his hair trimmed in a military-style buzzcut. That got him thinking: Why should he be the only one making tonsorial sacrifices for the film? So he made a deal with the crew last week: For every crew member who also shaved his or her head, Efron would donate cash to Kingsley House.
By the time the shears had stopped, some 30 crew members had put themselves on the chopping block, including two women whose lengthy castoffs were donated to Locks of Love, the national organization that makes wigs for sick children.
Just as importantly, Efron was on the hook for thousands of dollars, although his Los Angeles-based publicist, Gina Hoffman, declined to provide an exact figure.
“He likes doing things for charity — two Make-A-Wish kids came a visit to the set while he was there — and he felt like he wanted to do something for a New Orleans charity since he had such a nice time shooting there,” Hoffman said Tuesday afternoon. (That is, something above and beyond the countless autographs he signed for local teenage fans who exhibited an impressive aptitude for sniffing out shooting locations.)
MEETING heart-throb Zac Efron yesterday was great news for young Olivia Wall. But it wasn’t the best news. “While it’s nice that Zac’s here to visit, we got the really good news yesterday that her cancer is in remission,” Shoshana Wall said.
The High School Musical star made a low-key visit to the Sydney Children’s Hospital in Randwick and won the hearts of patients like Olivia, their parents and the staff. Efron, in Sydney for the premiere of his latest film Charlie St Cloud, spent an hour with the children in the cancer ward.
The star was friendly and relaxed with six-year-old Olivia, an ardent Efron fan who has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The first-grader was happy to hug Efron and read her favourite picture book – High School Musical. “What a coincidence,” Efron joked.
Asked by Efron who was her favourite characters, Olivia replied “Sharpay” (Ashley Tisdale), an answer that brought a few chuckles. “She’s one of my favourites too,” Eftron said. He leaves Sydney for Los Angeles today.

Before the start of the advance screening of Universal Pictures’ Charlie St. Cloud in Melbourne, FL on July 28th, Zac had a very special surprise message for those that attended. Zac made a video to play before the advance screening letting everyone know that non-profit To Write Love on Her Arms and his new movie had a lot in common.
Zac stated in his video, “To Write Love on Her Arms is something truly special and there is a lot in common with the mission and this movie. Charlie St. Cloud is a story about overcoming loss and grief, about the power of love to help you discover a life worth living. I know that is a message you care about too.”
Non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) hosted a free advance screening of Universal Pictures’ Charlie St. Cloud, starring Zac Efron, on Wednesday July 28, in Melbourne, FL this evening. The special screening was held for TWLOHA supporters before the film opens nationwide on July 30.
TWLOHA created an evening that shared hope, help and community. “We want our supporters to feel celebrated and special,” said TWLOHA founder and Melbourne Beach native Jamie Tworkowski. “We want to give them a taste of what a film premiere is like, and we love that we’re able to make this happen in Melbourne.”
Charlie St. Cloud deals with letting go and starting over, themes related to TWLOHA’s mission of presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. As it does at its annual HEAVY AND LIGHT event in Orlando, TWLOHA plans to give every attendee information that points to local counseling and treatment resources. In addition, there will be speakers, TWLOHA merchandise available and a chance to meet the TWLOHA Team.
