This is part of a charity effort from a company called Omaze which frequently offers a chance to win a cool experience to encourage entries that raise money for a charity, in this case, Lake Stevens Boys and Girls Club.

The cast of Star Trek Beyond has teamed up with charity organization Omaze to offer one fan (and their guest) a walk on role on Star Trek Beyond. Six slightly less lucky winners will get to visit the set to see the actors do their thing. A $10 donation gets you 100 chances, while a $100 donation will get you 1,000 chances and a t-shirt. For your chance to win, check out the campaign here.

JJ Abrams offered a similar opportunity with Star Wars: Force for Change, which raised 4.26 million dollars for Unicef.

With any luck, a trip to the Star Trek set will look a little like this:

Kids from both Big Brothers/Big Sisters of New York, and SAY were surprised with a special screening of Marvel's Ant-Man hsoted by the hero himself, Paul Rudd. SAY was a personal choice for Rudd, as he's been on the board since 2007. It's a charity that provides speech therapy and after school programs to children who suffer from stuttering.

He made sure the kids stayed for both end credit sequences, because you don't want a miss a thing.
