The boy will get a non-speaking part as an extra in Ferrell’s new movie, Step Brothers, and in a statement released by the foundation he said:
“Winning this auction means a lot to me on a very personal basis. I lost my mother to ovarian cancer a few years ago, so I feel fortunate that my 10-year-old and I are able to participate in an event involving Cancer for College and Will Ferrell.”
Ferrell was delighted with the result, saying, “We are overwhelmed with the response and generosity to the auction.
This money will help so many young people with their dreams of attending college.”
The winner will meet Ferrell on Friday at the 14th annual Cancer For College golf tournament dinner in Temecula, and will join the actor on the movie set next month.
Ferrell’s friend Craig Pollard founded Cancer For College to provide scholarships to current and former cancer patients. The foundation has awarded $200,000 to 50 cancer survivors since 1993.
