Backstreet Boys fans have A LOT to look forward to this Christmas season.
The famed 90s boy band made famous for hits such as “I Want It That Way,” “Everybody,” “Larger Than Life” and “Quit Playing Games,” are definitely NOT playing any games when it comes to charity.
The band is comprised of Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean and Howie Dorough.
The Backstreet Boys Have Something Major Up Their Sleeves!
The Backstreet Boys have teamed up with Elf on the Shelf to bring to life “A Very Backstreet Christmas Backstreet Boys Experience” to fans.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
The Backstreet Boys are auctioning off their time and music to one lucky winner and a guest of their choosing. The winner and their guest will win an all-inclusive trip to kick off the holiday season in Los Angeles with the Backstreet Boys, and celebrate their official release party for their new album “A Very Backstreet Christmas.”
The auction, which is taking place on eBay for charity, is presented by Auction Cause and all net proceeds from the auction will go to Point Hope, Inc.
Auction Cause is a premiere celebrity and brand auction management agency.

The grand prize includes airline tickets for two people to Los Angeles or Burbank airport, three nights hotel stay (November 30 – December 3), two tickets for winner & guest to the official release party on December 1st, photo-op with the Backstreet Boys, and an autographed “A Very Backstreet Christmas” CD for both the winner and their guest.
The starting bid for the eBay auction is $999.00 and will go live at 4:00 PM PST. You can take part in the charity here.
The Blast exclusively spoke to the president of Auction Cause, Eric Gazin.
“We’re excited to offer the biggest Backstreet Boys fans the opportunity to fly out to Los Angeles, meet the guys, and contribute funds to an amazing organization like Point Hope,” Gazin told us. “This is not a typical meet-and-greet that one might get at a concert. It’s going to take place at a private party at a well-known Beverly Hills hotel. We’ve made sure that there are some great extras the winners are sure to enjoy.”
This Isn’t Your Average “Meet-And-Greet”
Point Hope was founded by radio personality Delilah to help children in foster care in West Africa and the United States.
Point Hope’s mission is to raise awareness and champion the cause for forgotten children so that: Every child has a loving and nurturing environment; every child has the basic essentials to live a healthy life; local communities are equipped to deal with the challenges facing children; government, business, education and religious communities are encouraging to partner for the welfare of children.
The Backstreet Boys new Christmas album will feature a number of timeless holiday classics including “White Christmas,” “Silent Night,” “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and “Last Christmas.”
In December the boy band will perform at five iHeart Radio Jingle Balls in major cities such as Detroit, New York City, Boston, Tampa and Miami.
The Backstreet Boys Will Be All Over For The Holidays!
The BSB have been devoted to charity and spreading their wealth.
They’ve supported “Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” “City of Hope,” “Kids Wish Network,” “Live Together Foundation” and “Lupus LA.”
Puppies at the Nashville Humane Association were named after all five members of the band, and they took the time to pose with their namesake pups.
