The money raised will go to whichever charity the selects.

Previous events have resulted in some pretty big spending. A coffee date with Apple CEO Tim Cook that was auctioned off in 2013 went for a sweet $610,000.

“We’ve found that entrepreneurs are the new rock stars online,” said Charitybuzz CEO Coppy Holzman, in a statement.

Bidding is open until Dec. 2.
