Excel Telecommunications entrepreneur Paul Orberson has bid almost $100,000 to have dinner with Ashley Judd and Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari.

The auction took place as part of Hoops for Haiti, a telethon held by the Kentucky team last Sunday that raised $1 million for earthquake victims. Calipari organized the event in only a few days.

“I’ve been saying for months that the Big Blue Nation is full of ‘crazies,’” said Calipari. “But after Sunday’s outpouring of support, I can call everyone something else: compassionate and generous. … It was beyond my wildest dreams.”

Judd will provide her personal chef for the dinner, which will be held at Calipari’s house.
