CGL Charity Auction at Unity Days 2018!

UPDATE: Massive gratitude for The 100 fans at Unity Days 2018, as we raised an incredible $11,330 for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network! Thanks to the kindness and generosity of attendees at the event that bid on and won items in our silent charity auction, CGL will be sending a check for 100% of the proceeds to PanCAN next week. We so appreciate your support of our charitable endeavors, particularly for this cancer organization. THANK YOU!

100% of the proceeds from the CGL auction at Unity Days 2018 will be donated to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in honor of my mother-in-law, who recently passed away after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Thank you very much for your kind support of CGL! *

Save the Date(s)! Upcoming CGL Charity Auctions

Cancer Gets LOST is honored to be hosting silent charity auctions at two upcoming fan events, as well as a massive global online charity auction in 2018!

October 8, 2017

Taking place in iconic Dharmaville (which is actually an active YMCA camp on Oahu in Hawaii) on October 8, 2017 – CGL is absolutely thrilled to be hosting a silent charity auction at the LOST fan event LOST 2017! Featuring all LOST items (many kindly donated and/or signed by cast and the creative team), the auction is open exclusively on site for event attendees. 100% of all proceeds from this auction will be donated to PanCAN, in honor of my mother-in-law. At LOST 2014, CGL raised just over $11,000 for the American Cancer Society, thanks to the tremendous generosity of attending fans that participated in our auction!

 

January 19, 2018

CGL is very excited to return to Vancouver in January to host our second annual silent charity auction at Unity Days 2018! Produced by Unity Events Canada, Unity Days is a unique and terrific 3-day event dedicated to The CW series The 100. Our auction will feature The 100-related items exclusively for attendees (a large number of which have been donated and/or kindly signed by our friends from The 100). And we will be donating 100% of the proceeds to PanCAN once again. At Unity Days 2017, CGL raised and donated over $4,000 to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network thanks to generous fans that bid on and won various The 100 items in our auction!

 

August 1, 2018

Our next big online charity auction will launch on August 1, 2018! We already have items from over 50 television shows and 15 films, thanks to the incredible generosity of fans and industry friends alike. Due to the sheer size of this auction, we are still working on logistics (online auction host, shipping company, etc.), so please stay tuned here and on our social media for updates! 100% of the net proceeds from this auction will be donated to a specific cancer charity (to be determined in early 2018).

If you’re an LA-based photographer and interested in possibly donating a day or two your time to assist us with auction photography next summer, please let us know!

* For Cancer Gets LOST updates and frequent auction item photo previews, follow us on Instagram and Twitter! We also have a CGL Facebook page, although admittedly we do not utilize it as often. *

Etc.!

In an ongoing campaign, we have partnered with the lovely team at Fangirl Shirts to offer “Be The Fan You Wish To See In The World/#ChooseKindness” tees and mugs! 50% of the proceeds from each item sold will be donated to PanCAN.

Thank you for your ongoing support. Cheers!
