Longtime LGBT Equality advocate George Clooney is auctioning himself off to benefit the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), an organization which keeps schools safe for LGBT students across the country.
Two lucky people will get to spend an “intimate” afternoon lunch with the Gorgeous George and journalist Dave Karger at West Hollywood’s Soho House. The once-in-a-lifetime experience is valued at $20,000 and is available to bid on through October 11 at auction site CharityBuzz.
Clooney in February spoke to the Advocate about starring in Dustin Lance Black’s 8, a play which dramatized the Prop 8 trials and was taken directly from the courts transcripts which was performed in Los Angeles, raising over $2 million for the American Foundation for Equal Rights and stated:
“One day the marriage equality fight will look as archaic as George Wallace standing on the University of Alabama steps keeping James Hood from attending college because he was black. People will be embarrassed to have been on the wrong side.”
So c’mon boys and girls break out those piggy banks and dig into that mad money and bid, Bid, BID!
