Gwyneth Paltrow is using her star status to help the victims of Superstorm Sandy

Gwyneth Paltrow is auctioning off a dinner date to raise money for victims of Superstorm Sandy.

The Iron Man actress and her chef friend Mario Batali will dine with the lucky winner of an auction on the website Charitybuzz.com.

So far the winning bid for the meal in New York is 5,250 dollars, with 21 days left to go.

The money raised will benefit The Council of Fashion Designers of America Foundation's Fashion for Sandy Relief Initiative.

Gwyneth isn't the only celeb pitching in to help out after the storm hit the east coast of the US last month.

Emma Watson has helped to deliver meals to those in need, Lady Gaga donated a million dollars to the Red Cross and newlyweds Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have been handing out relief backpacks and blankets.
