As Battlestar Galactica’s final 10 episodes begin airing this Friday, the Sci-Fi Channel will hold two auctions of memorabilia from the show to benefit charity, featuring items from cast members such as Tricia Helfer.

The first event will be a week-long eBay auction from 12 through 19 January with about 200 separate items to bid on (search Battlestar Galactica on eBay). The second will be a two-day live auction, 17 and 18 January, at California’s Pasadena Convention Center where bidders can either show up (free entrance), bid in real time via the webcast or place a proxy bid online.

While eBay is auctioning off the less costly memorabilia, the live auction will offer items such as Galactica character’s costumes, set furniture and props, art, costume sketches, weaponry and jewellery, all available for preview on 16 January. There will also be creative department head panel interviews that day.

United Way will benefit from the auctions’ proceeds. While many United Way regions in North American have reached or almost reached their fundraising goals for the year, the economic downturn has presented a significant and unexpected challenge.

A concerned UW spokesperson stated last week: “While many will struggle to make ends meet during this belt-tightening period, our most vulnerable citizens will continue to need the support of [United Way] affiliated organizations.”
