Less than 5 Hours to Bid!

Less than five hours left to bid on the Once More With Feeling songbook, signed by Sarah Michelle Gellar, on eBay. Remember, all the money is going to our two beneficiaries, Equality Now and BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre Foundation.  Only a few more dollars and we can reach our goal of $5,000 raised this year!

Message from Jewel Staite

Besides saying hello to everyone at CSTS Vancouver (via e-mail) and wishing us well, Jewel asked if we would pass on information about a friend's fundraiser.  We did at the event, but we're adding it here for those people who are interested.

In her own words:

"My friend Ryan Purcell, who was one of the camera operators on Stargate: Atlantis, is throwing a benefit on September 24th at the Sutton Place Hotel in Vancouver to raise money for research to help his son, who's sick with a very rare degenerative disorder called Hunter Syndrome.  If you could, it would be so fabulous to give the benefit a shout-out by mentioning its website, http://www.onceuponacure.com.  Several actors from Stargate, Smallville, Sanctuary and Supernatural are going to be there, as well as a few local weel-known actors from Vancouver.  There's going to be an auction held there as well with various prizes like lunch with me and Paul McGillion, lunch and  a set visit with Amanda Tapping, etc.  It's a great cause, and I'd love to help Ryan and his wife Deb sell more tickets!"

Since Jewel is always helping us out with CSTS Vancouver, it would be great if people could help out with her friend's fundraiser.  The link is on the side bar as well.

Don't forget to check out Jewel's food blog.  Just don't do it if you're already hungry!  There's a link to Happy Opu (under Jewel Staite's Food Blog) on the right.

As if we didn't have enough shiny items at our silent auction last weekend, we received a donation that we thought was worthy of putting on eBay.  Today's the day.  For one week only, you can bid on Buffy the Vampire Slayer's "Once More With Feeling" songbook, signed by Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar!  One of our CSTS volunteers has donated this unused book which he had signed when Sarah was in Vancouver filming the movie Possession, which was released in 2009.

The proceeds of this sale will go in to our CSTS Vancouver totals for Equality Now and BC Women's Hospital & Health Centre Foundation, so click the link above and bid high and bid often!
