ANCHORAGE - Want to have dinner with former Gov. Sarah Palin? Plan on writing a big check.
The ex-Republican vice presidential candidate is offering the dinner as part of a charity auction on eBay for the Ride 2 Recovery program, which supports wounded veterans through cycling programs.
The 10-day auction starts at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday. The opening bid for dinner for five with Palin is $25,000, and organizers say the winner will have to foot the travel bill to meet up with her, likely in Alaska.
There are nine other celebrity items in the auction, including lunch with former Bush aide Karl Rove. That opening bid is $7,500.
By comparison, $2.1 million was paid in 2008 for a lunch with financial guru Warren Buffett.
