Role in Will Ferrell Movie Goes for $47,100

Remember when I told you that Will Ferrell was auctioning off a role in his movie Step Brothers, with the proceeds going to charity? Well, we have a winner!

Clearly, Ferrell was right to appeal to kids' parents, assuring them that it would be "the surefire way to win the parent of the year award." The Dallas father of 10-year-old boy ended up with the winning bid of $47,1000 which secures his son a role as an extra in Ferrell's movie. Bidding started at $5,000.

The money will go to Cancer for College, an organization started by Ferrell's college buddy Craig Pollard who is a two-time Hodgkin's disease survivor. The foundation helps send current and former cancer patients to college.

The highest-bidding man wishes to remain anonymous, but said in a statement issued by the foundation, "Winning this auction means a lot to me on a very personal basis. I lost my mother to ovarian cancer a few years ago, so I feel fortunate that my 10-year-old and I are able to participate in an event involving Cancer for College and Will Ferrell."

I completely respect raising money for charity, but what ever happened to just being able to enter a contest and win something beyond your wildest dreams? The auction stuff obviously goes to people with money. But what about us everyday folk who might want to see how the other half lives? And win it just by chance? I personally give a small amount to charity every year but would NEVER be able to participate in anything like this! Or is that how they've decided to weed out us little people? Do celebrities really forget that we are is the same place that they all came from?

that is so nice! For people who've spent all their savings fighting cancer, they can't always afford college. What a great way to help someone.
