If you’re planning to attend San Diego Comic-Con this week, or will just be in town for related activities – please join Cancer Gets LOST for a very casual fan meet-up on Saturday, July 22 from 4pm – 5:30pm outside of the San Diego Central Library (330 Park Blvd)! See map below.
We were unable to afford or officially reserve a spot close to the Con for this small gathering, so we decided to set a public meeting place that was within walking distance of the Convention Center. The library is a block away from Petco Park, and we plan to meet outside in the library courtyard. Given that we have no way of anticipating library traffic and Con overflow crowds at neighboring events during that time, we may have shift (as a group) to a space in front of the library if need be!
Whether you just want to meet fellow fans from a wide variety of fandoms or you’d like to donate an item you acquired from SDCC to CGL for a future charity auction (NO pressure whatsoever!), we hope you can stop by. We will have CGL wristbands for everyone and random giveaways of items from your favorite shows (i.e. The 100, LOST, Orphan Black, Wynonna Earp & more; some signed)!
ITEM DONATIONS FOR CGL CHARITY AUCTIONS
Every year at SDCC, Warner Brothers has a lottery process for a limited number of fans to attend autograph sessions with their WB TV and film casts at their giant booth on the convention center exhibition floor. If you happen to receive a wristband for a WB signing and do NOT wish to keep the poster you are given to get signed, CGL would love any of these signed posters for future charity auctions! Just tweet us (@CancerGetsLOST) during the Con and we can try to arrange to meet you if you’re not able to join us at our meet-up on Saturday.
CGL’s Top TV show wish list for signed items from SDCC
The Defenders (Marvel/Netflix), Fear the Walking Dead (AMC), Game of Thrones (Warner Brothers/HBO), Outlander (STARZ) , Westworld (Warner Brothers/HBO)
Official SDCC 2017 autograph procedures/policies and schedule can be found here on their website.
If you are lucky enough to secure a wristband to the very limited Fear the Walking Dead signing that AMC hosts at SDCC on Saturday – and are not planning to keep the FTWD poster that the cast signs, CGL is definitely interested! [We are fortunate to already have many charity auction items kindly signed by The Walking Dead cast, thanks to the generosity of our friends at Walker Stalker Con.]
Donation page for details.Honestly, if anyone at SDCC finds themselves with extra items from any popular shows or films – we would be honored if you considered donating them to Cancer Gets LOST! As always, we have no expectations and there is zero pressure to do so. If you would ever prefer to make a financial contribution to CGL in any amount, please visit our official
UPCOMING CGL CHARITY AUCTIONS
We will be hosting a huge online global CGL charity auction in the summer or fall of 2018 featuring rare and signed pop culture memorabilia, and will be donating 100% of the net proceeds to a designated cancer charity (TBD). We already have auction items from over 50 TV shows in that auction, and are always open to more of a variety! In October of this year, we will be on site in Hawaii to host a silent charity auction of LOST items at LOST 2017 (a fan event on Oahu), donating 100% of the proceeds to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. And as we did in early 2017, we are hosting another onsite silent charity auction of The 100 items at Unity Days 2018 in Vancouver – also donating 100% of the proceeds to PanCAN!
LOST Panel at SDCC
If you’re a LOST fan, join us at Jay and Jack’s annual SDCC LOST panel in the Neil Morgan Auditorium at the San Diego Library at 3pm, right before our CGL meet-up! We will be discussing the legacy of our favorite show, reminiscing about the early days of podcasting and theorizing, and sharing details about upcoming Cancer Gets LOST charity auctions!
We look forward to seeing you at SDCC, and will be there from Wednesday – Sunday. Look for us and a few of our friends in Cancer Gets LOST shirts throughout the Con.
Thank you so much for your ongoing support of our charitable endeavors!
