Because I am fantabulous in every possible way (shhhh, go with it), I bring you the following intel (pay special attention to the fact that registration ends today for the live auction items and that the eBay auction ends on Saturday).
Just as a side note, I was over on the Castle set last year. That gang could not have been nicer (or more attractive– mercy that’s a good looking bunch!).
What do “Life Unexpected”, “Castle”, “The X-Files”, “The Soup” and “Two and a Half Men” Have in Common?
Last chance to get your bidder registration forms in for IBG Inc’s first-ever Live Auction event.
IBG Inc has extended their registration through Thursday October 28th 2010 for their first-ever Live Auction event. The auction itself will take place on Saturday, October 30th and feature both live and silent auction lots, as well as a select eBay component.
The auction contains some fantastic, one-of-a-kind item donations! The latest items to arrive include a cast-signed copy of the “Life Unexpected” pilot script and a Discovery Bay Games package (that is a must for “Saturday Night Live” and Grateful Dead fans). These two new additions join the already popular auction lots of “Castle” set visits, VIP TV Taping tickets to “Two and A Half Men”, as well as “The Soup”, a private cooking lesson with Chef Gavin Mills from Bastide, a limited edition lithograph from the upcoming Disney animated film “Tangled”, a ModCloth Outback handbag, and Los Angeles Dodgers ticket vouchers.
Interested parties can take a look at the complete auction catalog and event details on IBG Inc’s website: http://www.ibginc.org/octauctions
Those interested in bidding on any or all of these lots must register on the IBG Inc website anytime before Thursday, October 28th 2010. Bidder forms must be returned by 5pm PT on the 28th for the auction, which takes place on Saturday, October 30th in Los Angeles. IBG will not be allowing on-site or same-day registration; however phone and absentee bidding are available for convenience.
“The X-Files” fans will want to take special notice of these as both stars of the hit 1990s genre series have donated special fan experiences. IBG Inc is happy to announce two unique items available on eBay in conjunction with this auction event: tickets to “The Break of Noon” along with a meet-and-greet with star David Duchovny in NYC, as well as set visits to “Johnny English Reborn” with a meet-and-greet with Gillian Anderson in the UK. The items available on eBay are live right now and do not require special registration through the non-profit’s website. The eBay item lots will end on Saturday, October 30th just after the live auction event ends. Links to the eBay auctions are available on IBG’s website at http://www.ibginc.org/octauctions, or bidders can visit the IBG store on eBay at http://myworld.ebay.com/ibg_inc/
IBG is a 501(c)(3) public charity focusing on utilizing the power of philanthropy through the arts to benefit a wide range of charities worldwide. We act as a “fundraiser facilitator” for micro-funded and start-up charities that would otherwise struggle with the logistics and costs associated with event fundraising. For these charities, every dollar is crucial. Since we began fundraising in December 2008, IBG has disbursed nearly $50,000.00 to participating non-profits.
Proceeds from this live auction event will have significant impact on IBG’s ability to support partner organizations which include non-profits on the front lines dealing with catastrophic illness, education, arts and culture and social services.
