If you're like us, the urge to live in the moment is constantly battling it out with an anxiety that we aren't doing nearly enough to help others. Well, for at least the next day or so, here's a solution: Top Chef Season 6 winner Michael Voltaggio will help us eat fabulously well, live it up, get our ego stroked, and also do some good in the world while we're at it.
Sound enticing? All you have to do is put in your bid for Michael's Wine and Dine Experience, an Ebay for Charity auction that benefits Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry Campaign. And do it by Thursday, June 2, 10:55am EST. If you're the winning bidder, Michael will work with you to create a sandwich at his Sack Sandwiches in L.A. that's inspired by you and named after you. (If your name is Rachel, sorry, that's already on the menu—turkey, Swiss, kraut, Russian dressing—so you might want to use your full name, or nickname? But we digress!) You'll also get dinner for four at Michael's restaurant Ink, and an autographed copy of his Volt Ink cookbook. And that's not all: You also get a three-day VIP pass to 2017's BottleRock music and food festival in Napa Valley.
You'll want to tell everyone about that named-after-you sandwich, too, because Michael will donate one dollar from every sandwich sold to the No Kid Hungry Campaign, in addition to the winning bid.
As of press time, the highest bid was $1,025.
