The highest bidder of the auction benefiting injured BMX stars T.J. Lavin and TY Pinney is offered free entry to skater star Rob Dyrdek's skateboarding haven Fantasy Factory.

Rocker is pitching in to raise money for injured BMX stars T.J. Lavin and TY Pinney by donating a drum kit for auction. MTV host and BMX star Lavin was recently released from hospital following a serious bike accident during a BMX championship in October, while Pinney is receiving treatment in a rehab center in Las Vegas after a separate crash in October.

Now Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), is rallying support for his pals by holding a benefit at Vanity Nightclub in Sin City on Friday, December 3 to help raise funds to cover their medical bills, according to TMZ.com.

Barker has donated a set of his beloved drums to the sale, while skater star has offered free entry to his skateboarding haven Fantasy Factory for the highest bidders.
