A day at actor Val Kilmer's Pecos River Ranch in New Mexico will cost you, but organizers of the Santa Fe Film Festival say it's for a good cause.

Festival co-executive director Michael Hare says Kilmer has agreed to help the festival raise money by offering up his northern New Mexico ranch.

For $500, a person can be a range boss for the day, getting a taste of ranch activities and fishing on the Pecos River. For $250, a person can be a ranch hand, or $125 will get you the position of wrangler for a half-day.

Hare says it's been tough for any nonprofit to raise money these days. So when Kilmer threw out the idea of using his ranch, the festival took him up on it.
