Lunch with Rupe is on auction block

Pining for a private schmooze with Rupert Murdoch? Now you can get one — but it won’t come cheap.

Starting Nov. 3, friends of Jerusalem College of Technology will auction off a private lunch with the News Corp. topper.

The winner and four friends get lunch alone with Murdoch in a private executive dining room at News Corp. HQ.

Better have cash in the bank, though. Bidding opens at $25,000 and bidders must pre-qualify. Final day to bid is Nov. 10.

“Israel has grown from a developing country to a global leader in advanced technologies,” said Murdoch in a statement. “The Jerusalem College of Technology is at the forefront of this achievement.”

All of the winning bid will go to benefit JCT.

No official word on who gets to pick up the lunch tab.
