Tomorrow one lucky bidder will win the chance to meet Anna Wintour in the flesh, and bring a friend along with her or him. That's right, there's a charity auction in the works and the grand prize is an audience with the leading lady of fashion herself. However, if $30,000 for the privilege is sounding like a big price tag for what is bound to be a short meeting, don't be discouraged as this is not all you'll get for your investment.

The charity auction to meet Ms. Wintour is being hosted by Charity Buzz and, with all proceeds going to USTA Serves, has a laundry list of prizes attached. 

Here's what is described in the package (get ready for a lengthy read):
