CHICAGO -- It's not just the hottest ticket in town -- Cubs playoff tickets are the highest in baseball on the secondary market.

Anna Patras, 24, is one of the lucky Cubs fans to have tickets. But guess what? When she got selected for the lottery, she had to buy three tickets -- which means she has an extra. And she's looking for someone to join her and her brother to Saturday's Game 2 of the NLDS at Wrigley Field.

Instead of selling the extra ticket and pocketing the cash, Anna has decided to use it for a bigger purpose. She is auctioning off the ticket with all of the money going to the Mayo Clinic's Esphogeal Cancer Department. The disease killed her uncle and best friend's father.

The bidding for Section 233, Row 11, Seat 6 will be open until 6 p.m. Friday. The person with the highest bid will win the playoff ticket.

Anna also has a Facebook page called Goats For Throats pairing her love of the Cubs with her quest to fund esophageal cancer research.
