Tom Colicchio is auctioning off a private dinner for 12, and it's all for a great cause.

Ever have that dream where Tom Colicchio is in your house cooking dinner for you and all your friends?

Well, now that dream can be a reality. Tom is auctioning off a private dinner for 12 to be cooked in an NYC home. That means the Top Chef judge and his team could be cookin' up a feast for you at your friends at your next dinner party.

Tom is giving you this fabulous opportunity for a great cause too. He's joined forces with Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation ART FOR LIFE gala to auction off the prize. Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation provides urban youth access to the arts and offers exhibition opportunities to artists of color and unrepresented artists. It was formed by the Danny, Russell, and Joseph "Rev Run" Simmons of Run DMC.

There are over 90 items currently up for auction, but we think a private dinner from Tom sounds pretty appetizing...

And if you happen to win, remember we told you! Hey, we've had that dream too.
