Happy to announce that on Monday, 27 September, the long awaited 2010 annual MSOL auction will be launched, 100% of the profits of which will be donated to the charity supported by Michael and his wife, Lexa Doig - the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
As well as many Michael Shanks/Stargate SG-1
related items - including some of Michael's own scripts from SG-1
, and from recent tele-movies and series such as Smallville
, Burn Notice
- the auction will also offer items from past and current popular shows, such as Star Trek
, Battlestar Galactica
and Dr. Who
and - of course! - Stargate: Atlantis
To date, the MSOL auctions and associated fundraising efforts have raised over $105,000 U.S. for the MS Society of Canada.
This year's event, which includes items donated and/or signed for the auction by Michael and Lexa, Richard Dean Anderson, Amanda Tapping, Ben Browder, Joe Flanigan, David Hewlett, Sir Patrick Stewart, William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy - among others - will, we hope, be just as successful as the last.
The first 20 items in the auction will be launched on 27 September, with more items added each day.
For more information, check out the MSOL Auction 6 home page - and please feel free to distribute the above news to any websites, lists, forums and online communities.
Thank you, in anticipation, to all who have supported - and continue to support - our fundraising efforts. Your contribution is very much appreciated.
