On Thursday night, comedian Jon Stewart took to "The Daily Show's" desk for the last time, however, he didn't leave without giving one charity a gift they'd never forget.
Over $2.2 million was raised for New York Collaborates for Autism (NYCA), after Jon Stewart teamed up with charity fundraising company, Omaze, to raise money through a meet-and-greet raffle.
Earlier this year, TV enthusiasts started getting their wallets open at the ready. NYCA teamed up with Comedy Central's program "Night of Too Many Stars", to set up an online giveaway on Omaze, a site that offers unique experiences as part of fundraising for a charity.
Omaze is currently working with other companies to raise money for various charities including "Win a role in Star Trek Beyond" and "Hang with John Oliver on the set of Last Week Tonight."
The online giveaway gave one lucky winner the opportunity to come see the final show (with a friend) and meet the comedian, all they had to do was donate $10 or more to enter the lottery – one which Stewart promoted on his show.
Omaze and Stewart raised $2,235,520 for NYCA, from a total of 47,048 people, across 78 countries. The highest donation received was $35,000, while the average donation was $45.50.
Matt Pohlson, co-founder of Omaze, tweeted that he would "miss the man (Jon Stewart)" but was proud to have raised $2.2 million with him for the foundation.
Pohlson went on to praise the comedian on Instagram saying Stewart was "one of the great honors " for Omaze, commending him on his performance over the past 16 years as a talk show host.
"Over the last 16 years, no one has done more than Jon to engage people around the issues that truly impact our lives and it's fitting that he leveraged his final show to raise over $2 million for this incredible cause," Pohlson said in a statement emailed to CNBC.
The lucky winner to meet Stewart was named Sameer, who took his wife to the final taping; he donated $100 to the cause.
