The Shape of Things to Come: CGL in 2014!

Hello, LOST friends – and happy 8.23! We’ve missed you and have been feeling unusually nostalgic lately, for two specific reasons.

First, because tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of our first Cancer Gets LOST live events (webcast and fundraising fan party)! One year ago this week, so many of you generously bid on items in our charity auction, watched the live webcast or attended the fundraising event in Los Angeles. That was an experience that we continue to look back upon quite fondly, and we are still in awe of your incredible contributions and support.

Second, because next year marks 10 years since LOST entered/changed our lives – and we are thrilled to announce that CGL will be hosting and/or sponsoring a live event (to be determined) at LOST 2014 on Oahu! As many of you know, LOST 2014 is the official fan gathering in Hawaii to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of LOST’s debut (9/22/14). To answer the most obvious and frequently asked next question – not yet (cast/crew will be invited but due to their filming schedules/locations and unknown career moves in 2014, we aren’t able to confirm anyone until later next year)! [Side note: I am actually working with the LOST 2014 organizers as their talent liaison, so rest assured that WHEN we are able to announce special guests - you will be among the first to know on all of our various social networks!]

Right now, CGL is in the planning stages for our involvement and partnership with LOST 2014, but here are few details about our plans for next year that we can share:

  1. We are very aware that those of you who plan to attend LOST 2014 will be spending a great deal of money to do so; therefore rest assured that whatever CGL winds up hosting/sponsoring – it will be an affordable option, and every cent will be donated to charity!
  2. There will be a CGL online auction featuring rare and signed memorabilia from a wide variety of television shows and films, which will run concurrently with the events in Hawaii (starting 1 week before and ending 1 week after)! We wanted to offer something for those of you who aren’t attending to participate! Of course the auction will be open to everyone around the world, regardless of whether or not you’re going to be in Hawaii. * Please note: winning bidders will be responsible for all auction item shipping costs and insurance.
  3. 100% of the proceeds from the CGL LOST 2014 event and CGL 2014 auction will go directly to the American Cancer Society, our charity of choice for next year!

Stay tuned for more details – and thank you for your continued interest and support!

Please ‘like’ the official LOST 2014 Facebook page and follow them on Twitter for updates. The Team Behind the Curtain is working very diligently in the hopes of offering fans good travel deals, island tour options and (fingers crossed) a Pilot screening! By the way – if you’re interested, they just started a LOST re-watch and are also seeking a logo designer; all of the details are on their site and FB page!

Just a reminder – you can also follow CGL on FB & Twitter. :)

Namaste!

    It is so hard to believe a whole year has gone by since that amazing weekend- a weekend filled with so much love, sharing, caring, giving and hope. It was beautiful to see everyone in the LOST community come together and help make the CGL charity auction and events such a wonderful success. I have no doubt that the next one will be just as awesomely successful and memorable.
    LOST is forever in my heart and soul- in my DNA, and cancer has written a chapter in my life story as well. Many of us have gone through wonderfully blessed times over the past few years, and many of us have had to bear terrific burdens and/or loss- and somehow just knowing LOST friends/fans are there for one another makes life extra special.
    No one does it alone.
    Let me know what I can do to help!
