The Cancer Gets LOST 2016 Charity Auction
Channeling Fandom Toward the Greater Good
August 8, 2016 — Los Angeles, CA — Blacksparrow Inc. has once again partnered with Cancer Gets LOST to host an online charity auction of one-of-a-kind entertainment memorabilia and pop culture collectibles. One hundred percent of the net proceeds will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
One of the auction highlights is the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Script Read-Through Photo signed by J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk and five cast members. This black and white 8” x 10” image was released by Disney in 2014 and generated a ground-swell for the film, which went on to break multiple box office records.
Another highlight of the CGL Charity Auction is The Walking Dead Season 3 Special Edition Blu-ray set signed by 26 cast members. This incredible set includes a collector’s Zombie Head Tank designed by Greg Nicotero and signed by every principal cast member of this fan-favorite show!
These two items are just the tip of the iceberg in this auction, which features collectibles from popular shows such as Fear of the Walking Dead, The 100, Arrow, Supernatural, The Flash, Game of Thrones, The Leftovers, Agent Carter, Doctor Who, The X-Files, Captain America: Winter Soldier, LOST (of course!), and many more.
The auction features over 450 rare and signed items from 60 television shows and 18 films. Many of the items were donated by Damon Lindelof, Javier Grillo-Marxuach, Jorge Garcia, The 100, Stephen Amell, and Cancer Gets LOST’s numerous generous donors!
“I love Cancer Gets LOST. The fact that a show could inspire two people to turn their fandom into a way to do some good in the world is the best tribute one could ask for, and my favorite way for the show’s legacy to live on.”
– Jorge Garcia (LOST, Hawaii Five-0)
The 2016 Cancer Gets LOST auction opens online to fans around the world on 8.15.16 and will run until September 3, 2016. Bidder registration will open on August 13, and at the same time a digital catalog will be released on www.blacksparrowinc.com.
