You Can Now Enter to Win Lunch with Matt Damon & Ben Affleck in Los Angeles


In the midst of a pandemic, it’s hard to look forward to or plan any future outings. However, what if we told you that there IS a light at the end of the tunnel—and it involves having a lunch date with two ‘90s heartthrobs?

That’s right, fundraising platform Omaze just announced that they will be raffling off a lunch date with actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. The lunch will be held in Los Angeles, California as soon as the pandemic is over and travel is deemed safe again.

“Pack your bags and drop your r’s, because you’ve scored lunch with two best buds from Boston—Matt Damon and Ben Affleck!” the fundraiser reads. “They grew up together. They won an Oscar together. And now their next big project will be getting to know YOU over lunch. How do you like them apples?”

The campaign continues to explain that you and a friend will both win a free trip to Hollywood (including flights and hotels) where you’ll be able to hang out with the two over a lovely lunch. “Ask Matt and Ben all your burning questions like ‘When is Good Will Hunting 2 happening?’ and ‘Who would win in a duel?’ And be sure to snap a selfie or twelve.” While it doesn’t cost anything to enter the contest once, if you donate just $10, you’ll automatically be entered 100 times. And if you donate anything higher than that, you’ll get even more entries!

What’s more, all donations will benefits organizations near and dear to the duo’s hearts, the non-profit organization that Damon co-founded in 2009, which works to bring clean water and sanitation to the world, as well as Affleck’s Eastern Congo Initiative, which he co-founded in 2010 and calls the “first U.S.-based nonprofit dedicated to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.”

Sounds like a win-win to us! And don’t worry, there’s plenty of time to enter the contest: The deadline is Thursday, Jan. 28, 2021. Just visit Omaze to enter!
