The Adrienne Shelly Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the late actress/filmmaker, is holding an auction in an effort to raise money for their grants. In turn, the grants will work "to help young women pursue their filmmaking dreams, and to assist others in making the same leap from acting to writing and directing as Adrienne had done so successfully." The auction runs April 6th to April 16th and here are some of the available items:
- Dates with Jon Hamm, Edie Falco, Keri Russell, Paul Rudd, Jeremy Sisto, Kevin Smith, David Schwimmer, Rosanna Arquette, Ally Sheedy, Nathan Fillion, John Slattery, Lili Taylor, Michael Cerveris (THE OBSERVER) and more
- Walk-on/extra role in Kevin Smith’s A Couple of Dicks, starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan
- Fox Television's Bones DVD sets signed by entire cast
- Four VIP Tickets to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
- Sundance Film Festival & Tribeca Film Festival passes
and a whole lot more. So if you gots some moneys, you can get some dates! Right now a whole bunch of the dates are still at $500. The most expensive date is Kevin Smith, currently going for $3,050.
