(Newser) – Would you spend $180,000 for a half-hour with Tim Cook? If so, you're not alone: That's how high the auction price stands for coffee with the Apple CEO. The site charitybuzz is auctioning off the coffee date of 30- to 60-minutes to benefit the RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights, Mashable reports. Charitybuzz notes the "estimated value" of the experience is $50,000. There are 19 days left in the auction; as of this writing, there are 52 bids.

Other celeb-tinged experiences are going for a lot less. Among them: A $3,000 bid would make you the current top bidder in an auction to act in a scene with Chris Hemsworth, in a Michael Mann movie, no less. Also, opportunities to cook with Paula Deen, lunch with Robin Williams, and "watch the magic unfold" in the recording studio with Babyface.
