Burlington native and Boston College grad Amy Poehler spent time with Spider-Man — a.k.a. Andrew Garfield — at the Worldwide Orphans Foundation’s 15th Anniversary Gala in New York Tuesday.

Poehler is using eBay to auction off a “Parks and Recreation” set visit to raise money for the cause. You can bid through Friday.
