The SAG Awards Ceremony Online Auction benefiting the SAG Foundation's Literacy and Emergency Assistance programs is currently live until February 2.

Also going under the hammer are amazing vacations, one-of-a-kind experiences, set-visits, celebrity meet-and–greets, and premium items from the networks, the studios, and the show’s sponsors.
The SAG Awards has had a long history of championing the SAG Foundation’s philanthropic, humanitarian, and educational programs. Bidding commences at 6pm PT. The auction will run for seven days, and it will conclude at 6pm PT on February 2, 2012 at www.sagawards.org/auction.
Proceeds from the SAG Awards Ceremony Auction will focus on the SAG Foundation’s children’s literacy core program, BookPALS, which engages 2000 actors nationwide in reading to over 100,000 children each month. In addition, the auction will help support other SAG Foundation programs such as the Catastrophic Health Fund and Emergency Assistance Programs, which provide financial aid to professional actors who are suffering from work-prohibitive illness or injury or are struggling to maintain the basic necessities of life. For the past 27 years, the SAG Foundation has provided a vital support system within the acting community. In addition to assistance and educational programs, the Foundation’s Actors Center and the Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab are unprecedented resource and educational facilities located in Los Angeles. Such accomplishments wouldn’t be possible without the support of the SAG Awards or events like this charity auction.
