How many times have you dreamed of going on a date with Zac Efron? Tons, right? Well, you may have a chance!
We’ve always admired the 25-year-old actor for his charitable heart and he’s teamed up with CharityBuzz for a really cool auction.
Zac is putting himself up for “sale” for a one-on-one meeting with him for an hour in Los Angeles. All proceeds for the auction will benefit Communities in Schools Los Angeles, whose mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
Take Zac bowling, hiking, out for ice cream — anywhere you’d like, but hurry, because the auction ends on Halloween night (October 31) and the current bid is of $3,000.

The 24-year-old actor opened up about his acting origins, where he’s going in the industry and what he hopes to accomplish in his career. Check it:
On his motive: “I might not be the greatest actor, but I walk in to every project willing to work hard. There are a lot of people who can slide on talent their whole lives; they’re just naturally gifted. I’ve never considered myself one of those people. I enjoy outworking the opposition.”
On The Paperboy: “It’s crucial for me to be finding roles that I don’t necessarily have the answers to. I’m proud to say I was courageous enough to step into a part I didn’t fully understand and followed my director blindly.”
On future franchise roles: “It’s not that I’m opposed to doing a big-budget action movie. But it has to be the right project. I don’t know that I’ve earned the right to hold a gun, if that makes sense. I need to pay my dues.”
On the show, Zac even chatted about his recent trip to the Philippines.
“We found that the best way to really explore the culture is to actually taste all the food. The first thing we tried is balut’ It’s kind of a weird thing. What they do is they fertilize the duck egg, and it sort of matures inside the egg,” he shared as the host played a video clip of Zac trying the local food for the first time.
