Usher took home a goldendoodle puppy after paying $12,000, beating out other bidders during the Pencils of Promise Charity gala last Thursday, October 25, 2012.
According to reports by several international news sites, the 33-year-old R&B singer beat out Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr, who bid $11,000.
Recent reports mentioned Usher bid on a puppy at last year’s charity auction, but was outbid. The family who took home that puppy reportedly named it Usher.
“All in the name of feline fun! It took me 2 years but I outbid everyone this year to bring Poppy home to Ush”, Usher tweeted after the event.
The winning bid will go towards the charity’s efforts to build schools in Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Ghana, reports said.
Based on reports, the Pencils of Promise charity, which was also supported by teen pop sensation Justin Bieber, has already built more than 50 schools around the world.
