Hello people of the interwebs, it's Will Ferrell.

If you're interested in winning the most amazing prize in the history of mankind while helping out a great cause, keep reading. If not, please take a moment to throw your computer in a lake.

For just a small donation to help my favorite charity Cancer For College, you'll be entered for a chance to join me at... wait for it... our big Desert Showdown in beautiful Palm Springs, California on March 3 & 4. At the event, I will not only show you how to play golf (if you are at all interested), but we might possibly race golf carts, make sock puppets and enjoy a sensible lunch together with only the finest bottled water.

In addition, you will receive tickets to our Desert Smash Celebrity Tennis event that will feature some of the biggest names in entertainment and professional tennis. Other cool people who are scheduled to participate include Kevin Spacey and Novak Djokovic.

To re-cap: You. Me. Grass. A gentle breeze and some balls. The whole shebang. The prize includes flights from wherever you are in the world with accommodations for you and a friend too at the world-famous La Quinta Resort. There is no physical way you can get a better prize than this. We've done the research. It's science.
