What would you give for a date with “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo? It’s not a trick question. If your wallet and heart were in the right place on Sunday, you could have made the winning bid - which incidentally was $16,900 - on BiddingForGood.com for lunch with the Everett native.
Run by Cambridge-based cMarket, the BiddingForGood Web site lets scores of nonprofits auction off everything from iPods to Uggs to weekend getaways to lunch with a celebrity. Maybe you want to help raise money for Boston’s Home for Little Wanderers? Maybe you just want to quiz Pompeo about what “Dr. McDreamy” Patrick Dempsey is really like? Either way, it’s a win-win situation, said cMarket CEO John Carson."
