Time has finally come to learn about who made it to land the cameo role in "Step Brothers" that Will Ferrell previously auctioned for charity: it's a 10-year-old boy from Dallas whose father bought him the part for a sum of $47,100.

"Winning this auction means a lot to me on a very personal basis," the father, who asked to remain anonymous, said in a statement released by the Cancer for College foundation. "I lost my mother to ovarian cancer a few years ago, so I feel fortunate that my 10-year-old and I are able to participate in an event involving Cancer for College and Will Ferrell."

As the winner, the kid then is scheduled to meet Ferrel this Friday at the 14th annual Cancer for College golf tournament dinner in Temecula to later join the funnyman on the movie's set in October as a non-speaking extra. Meanwhile, the money will all go to the cancer foundation which Ferrell's friend Craig Pollard founded back in 1993.

"We are overwhelmed with the response and generosity to the auction," Ferrell, who sparked the idea of auctioning off the role, commented. "This money will help so many young people with their dreams of attending college."
