During the holidays, actors Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard announced that the couple was teaming up with a charity that helps kids — and extended a unique treat for fans.

According to its homepage, the charity they’re working with, “Opening Act,” seeks to support underprivileged students and give students the chance to:

develop leadership, community and commitment through its innovative, high quality, free theater programming … The program provides a safe, inclusive and supportive environment so that their students feel empowered to share their stories.

And the couple kept up the fun as the deadline for the contest drew near:


On offer in the contest was — with a donation — a chance to win a seat at their table as their “double date game night guest of honor.”

What’s included in that? The contest page stated the winner will be flown out to Los Angeles and put up in a 4-star hotel with a plus-one, then will “[d]ress up in matching holiday sweaters, get cozy and bake cookies” with Shepard and Bell.

As seen above, Bell posted on Instagram a photo of herself and Shepard in matching holiday sweaters, a preview of what the winner of the contest can expect.

The contest rules hint about playing a board game that “rhymes with ‘mettlers of a fan,’ a reference to Bell and Shepard’s favorite board game, “Settlers of Catan,” although the games played will be the winner’s choice, it noted.

The description ends with:

Will Kristen sing you her favorite holiday tunes? Will Dax show up in a onesie? Will you end up eating all the cookie dough instead of baking it? They take their fun seriously, so anything goes at game night.

Thursday was the last day to enter, but we’re sure you agree— date night with this couple sounds seriously fun.
