Four Weddings and a Funeral fans—and rom-com lovers in general—this one is for you. British actor Hugh Grant wants to attend your virtual wedding and thanks to a new charity auction, you have the chance to make this one-of-a-kind opportunity your reality!

It's all a part of Comic Relief US's charity celebrity auction with eBay. The non-profit, which is committed to ending poverty in America, teamed up with the commerce site to raise funds in honor of Red Nose Day on May 21. The highest bidder of the Hugh Grant experience will receive a personalized pre-recorded video from the actor himself—a.k.a. the most epic toast of all time.

The Charity

Never heard of Red Nose Day? It's a campaign aimed to end childhood poverty by funding programs that keep kids educated, healthy and safe. Since its inception in 2015, the non-profit has raised over $200 million and impacted over 25 million children in the United States and around the world.

Some of the programs that the Red Nose Day Fund benefit include Boys & Girls Clubs of America, charity: water, Children’s Health Fund, Covenant House, Feeding America, International Rescue Committee, Laureus Sport for Good, Save the Children and UnidosUS.

The Prizes

Adding Grant to your guest list isn't the only exclusive opportunity on the auction either. Other prizes include a ticket to an upcoming Christian Siriano New York Fashion Week show, a handwritten love note from Richard Curtis (the mastermind screenwriter behind rom-com classics like Four Weddings and Funeral, Love Actually, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones' Diary) and an Xbox One signed by actor Jack Black, to name a few.

The Bids

Hosting Grant as your guests of honor (and snagging those other priceless experiences) is easy. Simply place your bids here before May 27 for your chance to win. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Red Nose Day Fund.
