WASHINGTON (CNN)– Dinner with Sarah Palin for $63,500?
That's what the winner of an eBay auction is forking over to chow down with the former Alaska governor, her husband, Todd and five guests.
Seven people bid a total of 61 times, starting with an opening bid of $25,000. The winner bid 27 times before winning with the $63,500 bid.
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.
"Todd and I are so happy to help such a worthy organization," Palin said September 10 on her Facebook page.
