After the lucrative four-way release of Smashing Pumpkins' "reunion" album, cashing a fat check for his Super Bowl advert., and plotting his money-making scheme to release new music, Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has a favor to ask: Will you buy me lunch?

Wow, what a jerk, right? Wrong: It's all in the name of charity!

Charity Buzz is auctioning off the opportunity to dine with the rocker in Los Angeles or Chicago -- and the "winner" gets to foot the bill! Proceeds from the auction will help the Songwriters Hall of Fame build a museum in New York "to highlight the achievements of songwriting greats and acknowledge their rightful place in our culture."

The auction is currently underway with the price already upwards of $2,500. Act fast: the bidding closes June 30 at 1:17 P.M. EST.

According to Smashing Pumpkins' website, the dinner is "valid for two people at a mutually convenient time. Restaurant TBD." The best spot to feast with Corgan: How about Courtney Love's house? Or, better yet, an ice cream truck!

And remember, dear winner, you're paying the bill, so be sure ask the hard questions, like, "can I join the band?" Last time we checked Corgan was in need of a little help behind the kit.
