The Sex and the City actress is auctioning off a night with her and TV executive Andy Cohen for a meal at the Blue Hill restaurant in New York City for a celebrity charity auction being held by CharityFolks.com.

All proceeds raised from the auction will go to the relief efforts of the superstorm and the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.

Other stars taking part include Selena Gomez, who is offering one lucky fan the opportunity to guest star in one of her music videos, while 101 Dalmatians actress Glenn Close is offering to record a personal voicemail message for a lucky bidder.

Actor Billy Baldwin, and CharityFolks spokesman, thinks the participating celebrities will gain more awareness for the relief work being carried out in the wake of the devastating natural disaster which hit the 'Big Apple' in October.

He said: "In normal times, one in five New Jersey children go to bed hungry and 1.6 million New Yorkers struggle to put food on their tables.

"These are not normal times. Millions have lost power - many have lost their homes and belongings - and it continues to get colder. This initiative will have an immediate and profound impact on the families who have suffered the most."

Other auction items include a night of mystery in illusionist David Blaine's private New York studio and the chance to be personally styled by Kim and Kourtney Kardashian at their Dash clothing store.

A host of other celebrities are also offering their services for the auction, which begins on Thursday, including; Nicole Kidman, Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel and Chelsea Handler.
