Would you like to spend an exciting evening with Robert Downey Jr. before going to the world premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron? The only possible answer to this question is yes—unless you love Downey so much that you’re worried you might embarrass yourself.

If this idea does tempt you, now’s your chance: Downey just announced the Marvel contest of a lifetime, and he’s part of the grand prize.

Marvel is partnering with Omaze, a charity network, for a contest that will send the winner to L.A. for what sounds like the most awesome date ever. All you have to do is donate $10 to the campaign, all proceeds from which will go to the Julia’s House children’s hospice.

Here’s what the winner will get to do, according to the Omaze site:

  • “Arrive by motorcade and walk the red carpet with Robert Downey Jr. at the World Premiere of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.
  • Experience indoor skydiving, a helicopter ride around LA, a custom tux/gown fitting, and more.
  • Get flown to Los Angeles and stay in a 4-star hotel.”

Yep, that’s a ridiculously amazing prize. Omaze has done a great job with high-profile nerd fundraisers in the past—for example, last year’s Star WarsForce For Change campaign—so this is sure to raise a lot of money for an excellent cause.
