Russell Brand auctioning off charity meet-and-greet for $10,000

Russell Brand is auctioning off a chance to meet him at a star-studded luncheon to raise funds for a Los Angeles charity.

The Get Him To The Greek star will receive the Man of the Year award from bosses at the Friendly House organisation, a drug and alcohol treatment centre for women.

Fans of the star have the chance to buy a prime seat at the event to watch Brand pick up the honour by bidding for the experience online.

The winner will also get to meet the British comedian and have a photo taken with him, but they will have to dig deep as the prize is valued at $10,000. The money will go to the Friendly House.

The event will take place at the Beverly Hilton in L.A. on Saturday (29Oct11).
