  We’re just guessing, but it might be a sure bet: Dining with uber-liberal actor Ed Begley Jr., and his wife Rachelle, might include discussion of saving the planet and would probably be fun.

MyWorkButterfly.com, a website for working moms and mothers trying to reenter the workforce, is auctioning off a unique experience, one with green-loving actors and stars of “Living with Ed,” to benefit Green Wish and the VH1 Save the Music Foundation. Proceeds are being used to help make a difference in the environment and in the lives of students across the country without access to music education.

The winning bidder will get that dinner with the Begleys at a green restaurant in Los Angeles, JetBlue round-trip airfare for two to LA, luxury hotel for one night, a gift bag from myworkbutterfly.com, and a gift from My ECO Shopping Bag System.

The Begleys recorded a video about the auction and cause that can be seen at www.myworkbutterfly.com/video/rachelle-and-ed-begley-jr. Bidding runs through April 11 and can be done at www.myworkbutterfly.com.

If you win and dine with the Begleys and tire of eco-talk, lay this bit of Boston trivia on Ed: His most remembered work was likely on the 1980sTV show “St. Elsewhere,” about a hospital set in Boston. The building used in exterior shots of the hospital, while just a block away from Boston City Hospital (now Boston Medical Center), is an apartment building.
