LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A local theater group is offering up the voice behind Homer Simpson to the highest bidder – all for charity.

L.A. Theater Works is auctioning off two tickets to attend a read-through of an episode of TV’s “The Simpsons”, including a chance to meet Dan Castellaneta, who voices Homer Simpson.

The winner will also receive an original “Simpsons” script and a photo of Homer signed by Castellaneta, who will also record a special phone voice mail message in the voice of Homer for the highest bidder.

Proceeds from the auction will go to the nonprofit L.A. Theater Works.

The prize package with an estimated value of $7,500 had earned only three bids by Jan. 29, the highest totaling $1,100.

The bidding deadline to enter a bid is by 1:15 p.m. on Feb. 14.

In addition to the “Simpsons” package, L.A. Theater Works is also auction off a visit to the set of “How I Met Your Mother” and a private script consultation with David Rambo, writer and producer for “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Revolution”.
