Stage and Screen | Doyle Auction
The Actors Fund and Doyle Auctioneers & Appraisers are pleased to partner with Christine Baranski on an auction event without precedent: “Stage & Screen.” Featuring a diverse array of memorabilia from the performing arts including Theater, Hollywood, Opera, and Dance, lots include original drawings, scenic and costume designs, photographs, meaningful wardrobe and one-of-a-kind memorabilia. Collectors and fans around the world are invited to participate digitally in this landmark live auction event. New highlights will be revealed each week leading up to the event.
While a portion of proceeds from every item sold as part of “Stage & Screen” will benefit The Actors Fund, Ms. Baranski is curating a collection of donated lots for which 100% of the hammer price goes entirely to the organization. She also personally donated three gowns that she wore for appearances at the Golden Globe Awards, Emmy Awards and Kennedy Center Honors.
“Talk about Spring Cleaning! I asked my friends and colleagues of stage and screen to lend support to this meaningful auction and the response has been extraordinary,” said Ms. Baranski. “Our colleagues in the performing arts need our support during this incredibly difficult time of crisis. The Actors Fund has provided a much-needed lifeline to our industry, and their work is nothing short of miraculous. I know I’m excited to see what Dolly Parton, Cher, Julie Andrews, Bruce Springsteen and over 20+ incredible stage and screen legends are pulling out of their closet! Let’s support The Actors Fund in what I know will be a fun, hopeful and nostalgic event!”
Joseph Benincasa, President and CEO of The Actors Fund, said, “We are so grateful for Doyle and especially to our good friend Christine Baranski for creating this extraordinarily fun way to fundraise. Our job is to support the people who work in performing arts and entertainment. This is a really beautiful example of how this marvelous community continues to find creative, new ways to return the favor.”
