The going price for coffee with Apple CEO Tim Cook is down from $605,000 to $600,000 after the top bidder in the auction was discovered to have been using a stolen credit card. The coffee date is just one among 138 total “experiences” being auctioned off to benefit the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.

Chatting over a cup of Joe is by far the highest bid in the RFK auction; the next highest is a six week internship at the UN in NYC and the UN-NGO Committee of Human Rights, currently going for a whopping $22,000. Further down the list is a tour of the SpaceX Center, acting in a scene with Chris Hemsworth in a Michael Mann film, eating lunch with Robin Williams on the set of a film, meeting Alec Baldwin backstage at Orphans on Broadway, and meeting Robert DeNiro at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival in NYC.

The auction still has about two weeks left, which gives potential bidders time to decide what they want to put in for. Estimated values range from a few hundred dollars up to tens of thousands, depending on the experience.

Charity Buzz has a number of other auctions going on as well, so if nothing catches your eye in the RFK auction be sure to check the others. Perhaps a certain cause will catch your eye, or a certain experience. Will it be MS, climate change, leukemia & lymphoma, or some other cause? Will you meet a famous celebrity or get to attend a life-changing event? It’s certainly worth a look.
