Wednesday, November 15, 2006 is on the air to help charity auctions is "on the air". A Good friend and colleague of ours recently launched and this weekly podcast ( and most recently a segment on KNX 1070 Money Talk program ) is a potpourri of Auction related news and issues. But integrated within the content are stories about current charity auctions- and I am advising all cause marketing PR folks to get their information into so they can expose the causes and auctions to their growing audience base.

The cast of NBC's hit Sci-Fi series Heroes will host an online charity auction starting Nov. 6 to benefit co-star Greg Grunberg's Pediatric Epilepsy Project , a charity that supports the Division of Pediatric Neurology at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Grunberg, who plays mind-reading cop Matt Parker on the superhero series, has a son, Jake, who suffers from the neurological condition.

The auction, which runs through Nov. 27, will feature autographed character illustrations by each cast member, as well as a limited-edition Heroes promotional items autographed by comic-book artist Tim Sale, who also does the paintings and illustrations for the show. Bids will start at $20.

Cast members contributing items include Santiago Cabrera, Tawny Cypress, Noah Gray-Cabey, Grunberg, Ali Larter, Masi Oka, Adrian Pasdar, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Leonard Roberts and Milo Ventimiglia. The Pediatric Epilepsy Project at UCLA was formed to raise funds, provide financial support and increase community awareness to help sustain the Division of Pediatric Neurology at UCLA.

Heroes airs Monday Nights at 9pm on NBC and is the breakout TV hit of the season!
