‘Twilight’ fans, ever dreamed of chatting it up with Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson? Or how about visiting the actual set of one of the movies and seeing the film come to life before you very own eyes? If you answered yes to either one of these questions, you might want to kick yourself for not taking part in the recent eBay auction for a chance to hang out with the star duo on the ‘Breaking Dawn’ set next year.
That’s right, on September 7th, 2010, the ever-popular charity Stand Up To Cancer, which just recently held it’s latest telethon, auctioned off a trip on eBay to visit the set of Breaking Dawn! While there was no guarantee the winner would actually get a chance to hang with R.Pattz & K.Stew, there is a very good chance the star duo could be on set! The package included airfare to Seattle and VIP car service to the Vancouver set of Breaking Dawn to spend a day any Twi-hard would drool over.
After ten days of bidding and a very heated last few minutes that saw a staggering increase of $40,000 in a very short amount of time, that dream came true September 17th for one very lucky ‘Twilight’ fan who cast the winning bid of $60,100! The entire proceeds from the auction will go to Stand Up For Cancer, which means this not only fulfills the fan’s wildest dreams, but also greatly helps an organization that works to speed up the research and approval of cancer treatments.
The set will potentially be the last of the ‘Twilight Saga’ sets anyone will ever get a chance to visit. So ‘Twilight’ fans, I cannot help but ask, if given the chance to bid in an auction such as this, what would be your maximum bid? And if you’re not a Twi-hard, for what other movie would you pay so much money for a chance at a set visit?
