A ticket to next month's "Dancing With The Stars" season 12 finale was auctioned for more than $10,000.

The winning bidder paid $11,000 for tickets to attend the finale of the ABC show during a live auction on Friday at the 18th Race to Erase MS fundraising gala at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

The show's professional dancers Cheryl Burke, Kym Johnson, Louis Van Amstel and Anna Trebunskaya presented the prize during the gala's live auction, which also featured tickets to "American Idol" and a chartered trip on a private yacht that sold for $35,000.

Race to Erase MS founder Nancy Davis said the fundraiser's auctions have raised more than $10 million for research toward finding a cure for multiple sclerosis.
