Fans get chance to bid on SAG Award bleacher seats

Jan 08, 2009 by Ian Evans

While many think the awards season is all about celebs patting themselves on their tuxedoed backs, the season is also an opportunity to use the high profile of these events to raise funds for the community works that they support.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards® is holding their ninth annual online auction which goes to help the activities of the SAG Foundation. Between now and January 12th, SAG is running an auction offering Red Carpet Fan Bleacher Seats at This second part of the three-part auction series features 90 seats along the SAG Awards red carpet. Winners can watch the glitz and glamour, take pictures, get autographs and go home with a great gift bag from People.

We’ve shot the red carpet there several times and we can tell you that film and TV lovers will love this carpet. All the top stars from the big and small screens come out to support and celebrate their fellow guild members. More importantly, you’ll be helping out the Screen Actors Guild Foundation which helps SAG members contribute to the literacy of children through BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools); Storyline; and the We The Children family-heritage book-writing project. The Foundation also provides emergency relief to members in economic distress, video and audio preservation of the creative legacy of SAG members, scholarships for performers and their children and emergency funds for members with catastrophic illnesses.
