George and Amal Clooney have launched a competition to offer two lucky people the chance to win a “double date” with the couple at their Lake Como home in Italy.
The Hollywood actor and the human rights lawyer are hosting a fundraising effort for the Clooney Foundation for Justice (CFJ) – their charity which campaigns against human rights abuses around the world.
The winner of the online raffle will be flown to the stars’ house and be wined and dined with them at a lunch.
“Pinch yourself, because this isn’t a dream”, the charity says, adding “you’re going on a double date with George and Amal Clooney!
“George and Amal will welcome you and a guest to their Lake Como home in Italy for lunch, laughs and the chance to get to know this amazing couple on a personal level.
“You’ll bond with George and Amal over a delicious meal, take in the spectacular views of the lake and share a celebratory toast all together.
“Plus, you’ll take some incredible photos to remember it all by.”
In the launch video, George Clooney says: “Hi, I’m Amal Clooney’s husband George and we’d like to invite you to come with us to Lake Como.”
The 58-year-old actor then looks off camera and says: “Are you sure that’s how you want me to say it?”
“People really love Amal. That’s really the selling point here”, the director responds.
Clooney continues: “That’s right, to benefit the Clooney Foundation For Justice, we’re inviting you and a guest to go on a double date with Amal, a world-renowned human rights lawyer, law school professor and a leading thinker on the concept of justice throughout the world and me… an actor.
“Just picture it, you and Amal, wine in your hand, discussing current affairs while her husband quietly serves lunch.”
Prices start as little as $10 (£7.92) for ten entries, and go up to $5,000 (£3958) for 50,000 entries, and fans have until 14 July to try their luck for a seat at their table.
The CFJ fights for justice through accountability for global human rights abuses, including those carried out by oppressive governments.
The charity also says it “advances justice for marginalised and vulnerable communities targeted by hate, displaced children deprived of opportunities to learn, and refugees seeking to rebuild their lives abroad”.
