(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. (Read more Tim Cook stories.)
