Awards season isn't just about all the incredible red-carpet looks and the actors and actresses who take home the honors—it's also about giving back. Case in point: the annual SAG Awards Holiday Auction, which benefits the Screen Actors Guild Foundation’s Children’s Literacy and Assistance programs.
And this year, they are some amazing items up for bid. The top prize? A VIP package to attend the SAG Awards ceremony and gala in Los Angeles on Jan. 25, 2015, where you can mix and mingle amongst the stars. The lot also includes autographed film and television collectibles from InStyle’s January cover girl Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lopez, Neil Patrick Harris, Carol Burnett, Amy Poehler, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Emma Thompson as well as the casts of Game of Thrones, How to Get Away with Murder, Sons of Anarchy, The Mindy Project, The Walking Dead, and more.
Proceeds from the auction support the SAG Foundation’s award-winning children's literacy programs: BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools), reading to over 60,000 children monthly in classrooms and hospitals nationwide, and Storyline Online, an interactive literacy website for students. Check out the SAG Awards Holiday Auction, which is live now through Dec. 14 at sagawards.org.
