Five hundred clams is the cheapest ticket to the Benoiff hospital benefit at Nob Hill Masonic Center Dec. 8. But you can spend nearly as much as you want; ticket revenues go to help build the 183-bed facility, which is due to open in Mission Bay in 2014. If titles are your thing, well, you can be a Rock Idol for $100,000. You can be a Rock Legend for half that -- and still get cocktails, dessert, and hear the introduction from Colin Powell.
But when the health of children is at stake -- along with a shot at seeing one of the most important musicians of our time -- it's good to throw down as much as you can, we think.
