General Motors Corp.'s Buick brand has teamed up with America Online, eBay and Hollywood celebrities to raise money for charity. AOL's Entertainment Asylum is producing ``Hollywood Gives,'' which started last night with ER's Anthony Edwards and continues for five weeks. Visitors can chat on with a star on a specific day before the week-long bidding starts on a Buick Regal or Century. Chat sessions for actor Duston Hoffman and actress Cheryl Ladd start Jan. 5, followed by Jimmy Smits Jan. 26.
