In just two weeks, our huge online charity auction opens! Beginning September 1 and ending on September 27, the official 2014 Cancer Gets LOST charity auction will be open to fans and collectors around the globe.
Hosted By An[other]
The CGL charity auction is hosted by our partner Blacksparrow Auctions, and we will be posting Further Instructions about their bidding, payment and shipping processes next week. A digital catalog of items in the auction will be available on September 1; we will link to that here and on Twitter/FB.
Charity of Choice
100% of the proceeds from all CGL items in the auction will be donated directly to the American Cancer Society! In addition, a percentage of the proceeds from a few items in the auction that are consigned through Blacksparrow Auctions (entirely separate from CGL) will also be donated to the ACS! Auction items will be very clearly designated as CGL or Blacksparrow.
If you prefer to support CGL by making a financial contribution to the ACS rather than bid on items in our charity auction, here are simple instructions to do so. We already have a generous friend who has offered to match the first $500 donated to the ACS via CGL!
Our Hearts and Minds
We selected the ACS as our charity of choice this year because Jo’s mother-in-law has pancreatic cancer. The auction itself is dedicated to the memory of Amy Jensen, wife of our good friend Jeff Jensen from Entertainment Weekly. Amy passed away in June after bravely battling brain cancer for many years. We are honored to be able to raise money for an organization that offers support to all families facing cancer with and on behalf of their loved ones.
The Items Behind the Curtain
On September 1, we’re so excited to be able to share with you the incredible items that have been donated and that we’ve been collecting for this charity auction over the last two years! Here is a list of the films and television shows with signed or rare memorabilia featured in our auction.Alcatraz Alias American Horror Story Animaniacs Arrow Bates Motel Breaking Bad Community Dexter
Dr. Who Felicity The Following Fringe Game of Thrones Ghostbusters Heroes The Hunger Games Intelligence The Leftovers LOST Once Upon a Time Orange is the New Black Orphan Black Pretty Little Liars Revolution

We would not be able to put this auction together without the incredible support of the many who have kindly taken the time to either sign or donate items. Your contributions are so very appreciated.
Our friend Daniel Roebuck stopped by the Blacksparrow Auctions warehouse recently to sign a Dr. Arzt bobblehead for the auction, and we also attempted to make this silly promo video!
Stay tuned for more auction details and frequent updates!
