Met up with Michael Emerson (Benjamin Linus on LOST, and currently Harold Finch on Person of Interest) at a benefit for Reading Opens Minds in LA… and thanks to him, we now have several items autographed for our charity auction in August!
And as an added bonus, here’s a clip of Michael doing a reading of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens!
Person of Interest returns for a second season this Fall on CBS.
It is with great pleasure that we are able to finally announce the venue for the official Cancer Gets LOST Party, to benefit the National Brain Tumor Society!
We will be hosting the event at Monk Space (4414 West 2nd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90004) on the evening of August 25th, 2012 from 7pm to 11pm. Join us for LOST trivia, giveaways, and more! Items from the charity auction (taking place that week) will be on display and special guests will be invited, but we cannot guarantee appearances ahead of time. However, they will be announced as they are confirmed!
Admission at the door will be a donation of any amount $5 or more to the National Brain Tumor Society, which can be made either in cash at the door or online via limited laptop Stations at the party. We will have separate wristbands for guests over and under 21 – so please remember to bring your ID! No advance tickets are necessary, but we do ask that you please RSVP via our Facebook event page. If you are not on Facebook, simply RSVP by emailing party[at]cancergetslost[dot]org!
You don’t have to be a LOST fan to attend – it will be a gathering of fellow pop culture nerds, all for a great cause!
Of course, as further details are finalized, we will be sure to keep everyone updated. Until then, namaste, and we look forward to meeting everyone on 8/25!

With a little help from the friendly familiar face above, we are thrilled to finally announce the details for our official event and charity auction this summer! There are three tiers to what we aim to accomplish with Cancer Gets LOST, all of which will take place to raise money for the National Brain Tumor Society.
1. Wednesday, August 15 – Wednesday, August 29: Online charity auction featuring rare and autographed memorabilia, props, art and more from LOST and other shows (official URL will be posted in early August). 100% of the proceeds will benefit the NBTS.
2. Saturday, August 25, noon-4pm PST: Live streaming Webcast with several of the cast & creative team from LOST and other shows (confirmed guests will be announced later this summer). The recording of this event will be closed to the public but available for everyone to watch online!
3. Saturday, August: 25, 7pm-11pm PST: Cancer Gets LOST Party in Los Angeles (location and time will be announced later this summer). Open to everyone; no-host bar, trivia, giveaways and more! Auction items will be on display. Admission: Cash donation of $5 or more to the NBTS.
We are still in the process of collecting items for the auction, so let us know if you have any original art, authentic official LOST Auction or autographed items to donate!
Save the date and stay tuned, as we continue to secure special guests and auction memorabilia. Thank you in advance for the support and for helping to spread the word – we certainly would not be able to do this without the amazing generosity and enthusiasm of the fans!
We would like to also express our gratitude to Jorge and Beth for taking the time to create the video promo!
