If you prefer your sandwiches with a side of Somerhalder, now’s your chance to dine with The Vampire Diaries star. An auction on Charitybuzz’s website allows voters to bid on a lunch with Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) for a good cause. (Naturally. This is Ian we’re talking about!)

The Ian Somerhalder Foundation donated the prize, with all proceeds going to the organization. The ISF is struggling to raise funds for a proposed animal shelter and youth center, so the lucky winner’s cash will contribute to that project.

“Ian will take one lucky winner and their guest to one of the cast's favorite Atlanta restaurants. Sit back, relax, and ask Ian his thoughts about the island on Lost, ponder the blood-sucking future of the Salvatore brothers, discuss your change-making visions for ISF, or simply enjoy a gourmet meal together,” the offer reads on Charitybuzz’s site. The fine print: The highest bidder will need to fork over the money for travel arrangements and accommodations themselves.

As of now, it will cost over $1,000 to win a meet-and-eat with Ian. Good luck to all you Somerholics!
