Charitybuzz is auctioning off a visit to The Office set to meet Steve Carell!
Listing description: Visit to the “video room” to watch the filming of “The Office” and meet Steve Carell and other available cast members. Takes place in LA. Valid for 2 people for one year, based on availability. Transportation and lodging are not included.
I contacted The Office staff and they verified the auction is legitimate. They also mentioned a set tour is included!

The auction ends May 28th.
P.S. Past set visit auctions have typically gone for over $10,000, so be prepared!
Kent Zbornak, co-executive producer of The Office, is auctioning off a set visit to The Office!
All proceeds go to the Office Fans Christmas Fund, benefiting The Office staff members that were laid off after the WGA strike began.
Details of the set visit from Kent:
As part of the Office Fans Christmas Fund, we would like to donate a guest tour of our production. The winner of this auction item and three guests will be given a V.I.P. tour of our shooting facility in Los Angeles and join the cast and crew for lunch. In addition, the winner will get to watch scenes being filmed for an actual episode.
I contacted Kent personally about this auction, and he assures me that it is legitimate.
Tallyheads, please let me know if you bid and win! I would love to feature your report and photos here at OT.
The auction ends December 14th.
