NEW YORK (AP) — Are you interested in a trip to the Grammy Awards with VIP access? How about a round of golf with New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg? Or lunch with Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick?

These are among a dozen experiences being offered in an online auction to benefit 12 charities.

Charitybuzz will reveal a new experience from Thursday through Nov. 18. The "12 Days of Giving" holiday auction will continue through Dec. 2.

Charitybuzz says the "selected gifts that give back" also include meeting Robert De Niro with VIP access to the Tribeca Film Festival. Other packages include meeting Amy Adams at the premiere and after-party of "American Hustle."

Starting bids range from $2,500 to $50,000.

Hundreds of additional items will be added to the site Nov. 19.
