(CNN) - If you've ever wanted to eat dinner with Sarah Palin, now's your chance.

With bids starting at $25,000, eBay is auctioning off a dinner for five with the former Alaska governor and her husband, Todd. The proceeds will go to "Ride 2 Recovery," a charity that provides wounded veterans with bicycles and organized rides to help in their mental and physical recovery.

"The Governor is excited to have been asked to honor our nation's veterans in this way," said Palin spokesman Meg Stapleton.

The auction opens on Tuesday and will last for ten days. Also up for grabs: Lunch with Karl Rove. Bidding on a meal with the former Bush presidential adviser starts at $7,500.

    Anyone stupid enough to pay $25K to have dinner with Palin deserves to lose that money.

    I'd rather give that money directly to her cause... that way at least it won't go through Palin's "administration".. where who knows what percentage of that would actually go through charity. Give the size of her legal defense bills.. you gotta wonder :)

    Because light travels faster than sound, sometimes a person can appear bright until you hear them speak.

    There you go Palin and Rove. They will stop at nothing to turn their 15 minutes of fame into a goldmine. Anyone who pays that kind of money to eat alongside a quitter and a person responsible for many of the problems we face today has a lot of time on their hands and is crazy. Although it is a good cause they should donate their meal to a charity.

    What a great cause!!! Congratulations to all involved!!!

    If there are any negative comments about this story, then people are simply heartless. No other word to describe it.

    Funny how we can hear about every move Palin makes while Charlie Rangel's fraud investigation goes on without a mention by the media.

    Why do they keep referring to her as "The Governor"? Didn't she quit that job? If you quit being a cashier at McDonalds, are you still referred to as "The Cashier"? Besides for $25,000 she better do more than have lunch with me. HAHAHAHA and no Todd, you cant watch.

    It's a great cause to spend your money on but I think I would get sick having dinner with that nut job.

    How can anyone say anything negative about this? I don't care your politics, this is money going for a great cause.

    I wouldn't worry about her quitting. I believe she'll just be a "no show" like her many other events.

    Unlike those other fundraisers, is there a guarantee that she will actually show up?

  22. Not at all Impressed

    Had they made it a lottery instead of an auction they could have brought in millions for the cause. But why bring in millions when you can have a select group of rich folks bidding a few tens of thousands instead. Its republican thumping on the back of a cause and nothing noble at all!

    Had I the funds marked specifically for donation to this charity, I might bid just so I could have the opportunity to stand those hillbillies up.
