Raise money for a good cause, dine with Patrick Dempsey.
That’s the deal being dangled courtesy of the former “Grey’s Anatomy” star’s annual Dempsey Challenge, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
As the Lewiston Sun-Journal reports, organizers for the annual charity effort in Maine — which centres around “a noncompetitive run/walk/cycle fundraiser dedicated to helping support the many nonmedical, cancer-related services provided by the Dempsey Centers in Lewiston and South Portland” — have announced a new incentive.
This year, officials at the Dempsey Center will select five fundraisers at random, who will have dinner with Dempsey at his home in Kennebunkport, two days ahead of the event (which will take place on Sept. 29 and 30 in Lewiston).
Anyone who raises $1,000 or more by Sept. 1 will be eligible to be selected to be one of the lucky five who’ll attend the dinner, with each winner allowed to bring a guest.
