SAG Awards red carpet bleacher seats up for auction
05:00 AM, Jan 03, 2014
If your fondest wish has always been to join the frenzied, sweating, jostling media mob on an awards-show red carpet, the Screen Actors Guild has an auction for you.
SAG is auctioning off more than 100 seats on the bleachers overlooking the red carpet for the 20th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 18 at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center.
The auction starts at 9 pm ET today and closes at 9 pm ET on Tuesday, Jan. 7. The proceeds will support SAG Foundation’s various children’s literacy programs, as well as catastrophic health assistance for performers in need.
The winners will be seated close enough to take pictures of and request autographs from the stars walking by. Some of the seats include four front-row seats across from the People platform, two across from the Associated Press platform, and two across from the wall of photographers and fashion cameras.
SAG is also running a Ceremony Auction, scheduled to begin Jan.16. Featured items donated by this year’s nominees and presenters include autographed scripts, posters, wardrobe and props. Set visits will be up for bid, as will packages and experiences from sponsors and entertainment media outlets.
