Look like your favorite star from The Bold and the Beautiful AND contribute to charity.
Hard to beat that, isn't it?

"Thursday's Child is such a great charity," says Gareis. "It's basically a hotline and they deal with so many different issues, like runaways, addictions and anorexia."
Even before these particular auctions, the actress was already involved with the group.
"I've done a few things for them before," she explains. "I also appeared on The Tyra Banks Show to help raise awareness. On that episode, it was about child exploitation and shutting down a lot of sites on the Internet about that kind of thing."
Gareis points out that her donated frock has an unusual distinction, as well: "I never actually wore it on the show," she notes. "It's the dress that I wear in the opening credits, so it gets seen every day. And people can bid on the Bridget dress, too, which Ashley wore on the show, as well as in our most recent cast photo."
Meanwhile, in a separate auction, Gareis will break bread with the top bidder.
"I was thinking of a Sunday brunch," she says. "It still could change and be lunch at the CBS commissary, but I'm leaning toward the brunch. I know for sure that I'm not working on Sundays, so then I could give my undivided attention to the winner. If it's in the middle of work and I'm nervous because I have a billion lines to learn, I'm afraid I won't be as attentive, so I'm thinking it's better to do it on a day off."
