I am a big sci-fi fan. Books, TV or movies. Star Wars, Aliens, Fringe, Dune, Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, etc. And my mom was a big Trekkie, so I was raised on Star Trek. So I am, of course, excited about Star Trek: Into Darkness coming out later this month.
If you're excited about the movie AND have some extra money to give to charity, bid on this. www.charitybuzz.com is auctioning off a chance to meet J.J. Abrams and the cast at the Los Angeles premiere. Proceeds will benefit The Mission Continues, which helps post 9/11 veterans transition from the military to leadership roles at home. In addition, the winner of the auction will get to walk to red carpet and attend the premiere after-party. Plus, Paramount Pictures and Abrams' production company Bad Robot will match the winning bid up to $25,000. Here's the direct link to the auction: www.charitybuzz.com/StarTrek. Bidding closes on Thursday, May 8.
Don't have a few extra thousand dollars? The film opens in theaters nationwide on May 17th. I'll be right there with you!
