NEW YORK—Adult film star Mariah Milano has launched a monthly raffle for a fan to win a trip to New York City to have dinner with her.
On the heels of launching DinnerWithAPornStar.com Milano has launched a monthly raffle where she will fly the winner from any major city in the U.S. to have dinner with her at a variety of her favorite restaurants.
The inaugural drawing will be a trip to New York City along with a night in the midtown Crowne Plaza Hotel and dinner at her favorite N.Y. restaurant, Momofuku Noodle Bar, which is owned by famous chef David Chang.
"Noodle Bar is fucking amazing!" Milano said. "I had dinner here for the first time a few years ago and was blown away. The concept is so cool and the Korean fried chicken is the most incredible thing you have ever eaten and requires advance orders as it is very limited. It is a meal you will never have again at any other place, I guarantee it."
Milano launched the DinnerWithAPornStar.com site last month and started out with cooking episodes but it has grown into more.
"It's a chronicle of my cultural adventures over the last few years from Indonesia and New Zealand to the street vendors in Europe," she said. "I started out just doing some cooking videos but then realized I had video blogs and hotel reviews from all over the world I could share so it took on this whole other concept.
"And I kept being asked how people get to have dinner with me or have me cook them dinner so I decided to do this monthly raffle," she continued. "I am starting out flying people to specified locations but eventually if it goes well I might just have a night where I sell tickets to come to a dinner that I'll cook for 10 or 15 people."
The contest has its own website, DinnerWithMariah.com, where you can buy one entry for $25, three for $50, or get eight entries for $100.
"The chances of winning are really high considering that I don't expect to have more than 100-200 entries per month," Milano said. "Those are much better odds than any other contest or lottery I have seen and for only a $25 investment the grand prize is pretty awesome."
Along with paying for the flight, hotel and dinner, Milano will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Brussels Griffon rescue of Florida.
The winner of the raffle will be drawn at random on the first of each month. The drawing will be broadcast live on webcam and the winner will have 24 hours to claim their prize. Entries can be purchased beginning July 27 until August 30 for the first drawing held on September 1.
