Our Launch Party With Charity Auction in aid of Cardiac Risk in the Young

in

Film Memorabilia Auction ItemsWe recently had a launch party for our new website, which included an auction of film memorabilia, in aid of the charity Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY), registered charity number 1050845. We are pleased to announce that we made a total of £283.67 for CRY.

The party was held at Oxygen in London's Leicester Square, on Thursday January 8th. Although we had the entire venue to ourselves, the majority of the action took place in the upstairs bar. That is where the film memorabilia was on display and also where members got their free drinks and the free food was available.

Launch Party AttendeesUnfortunately, or fortunately, depending on which way you look at it, the upstairs bar did get a bit crowded, which meant it was difficult to see the film memorabilia and place a silent bid, so we opted for a last minute normal auction. Thanks to Steven Goodwin, Sharan Sandhu and Kellie Lawrence for stepping in at the last minute to become impromtu auctioneers.

Launch Party Impromptu AuctionThe film memorabilia was supplied by a third party, at a reserve price. All proceeds over and above the reserve price went to CRY. The auction made a total of £827.50, which left £216.02, after paying the third party. Full details are here, but the items that sold were signed Sean Connery, James Bond, Jack Nicholson, The Shining, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, Men In Black, Orlando Bloom, Pirates of The Caribbean, Keanu Reeves, The Matrix and Kevin Bacon, Death Sentence photos, as well as a boxing glove, signed by Sylvester Stallone.

We also had a business card raffle, which was £1 per entry. All entry fees went to CRY. We made £67.65 from the raffle and donations, bringing our final total up to £283.67.
