Blacksparrow Auctions announced on Sunday that they will be partnering again to host the annual Cancer Gets LOST charity auction. The auction is set to feature around 500 rare and signed items from 45 TV shows and 15 films. The scheduled dates for the charity auction is set for August 15, 2016 through September 3, 2016.
Cancer Gets LOST (CGL) is a non-profit charitable endeavor co-founded by Executive Director Jo Garfein and Jared Wong to raise money for various cancer support charities through auctions and fundraisers featuring rare and autographed pop culture memorabilia. Channeling fandoms toward the greater good!
The auction benefit proceeds 100% goes to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope.
Collectors Hype will provide more information soon.
