The Twilight Saga has been a pop culture phenomenon since the first book in the series came out in 2005, which was soon followed by the film adaptation of the book in 2008. The fantasy book series revolves around Bella Swan who moves from Phoenix, Arizona, to Forks, Washington, and winds up falling in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen. In 2009 the second Twilight movie debuted, and then this year the third Twilight movie premiered, but now fans will have to wait until November of 2011 for the next installment in the series called The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. November 2011 is when part one of the final movie will be released, and this will be followed by part 2 releasing in November 2012.
This week something unique was announced for the true Twilight fans (aka Twihards), which is a chance to travel to the Vancouver set in early 2011 to visit while the film is in production. However the only catch is that you have to be the winner of an eBay auction which is currently underway, where the proceeds will go to benefit non-profit organization, Stand Up to Cancer. E! Online was one of the first to announce the charity auction, which started with an opening bid of only $100. Since then there have been 62 bids, and the current auction bid stands at $9,600, with the next bidder needing to go to $9,700 to have a chance to visit the set of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. So if you are one of the biggest Twihards around and have an extra $10,000 to spend, you might consider taking a look at this auction. The auction does not end until September 17 however, so it is likely that the final winning bid will be well over $10,000.
