SAG Awards goodie bags on eBay

Site to auction contents nom, presenter gifts

HOLLYWOOD — The Screen Actors Guild is letting the public get a shot at one of the most prized perks for stars: award show gift bags. The guild is auctioning on eBay the contents of the gift collection that nominees and presenters will receive at Sunday’s eighth annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Proceeds of the auction, which runs through tonight, will benefit the Screen Actors Guild Foundation, the union’s charitable arm that offers support for AIDS, scholarships, catastrophic illnesses and emergency needs to SAG’s nearly 100,000 members as well as fund public literacy programs. If nothing else, the auction should mute some of the inevitable comments about wealthy celebrities receiving free goodies.

The gift bags were coordinated by Karen Wood’s Backstage Creations, which handles bags and sponsored gift rooms at a number of industry events, including the People’s Choice and American Music Awards. Among the items included in the SAG collection are guest passes to the Sports Club gyms around the country, Dolce & Gabbana eyewear, a bottle of Taittinger champagne, gift certificates for dog-sitting and dog-walking and a piece of luggage from Wilson’s Leather.

There are some things guests at Sunday’s event will enjoy that aren’t being auctioned on eBay, however. For instance, Dry Creek Vineyards in Sonoma is hosting wine-tasting bars at the Shrine Auditorium and giving presenters and nominees a bottle of Reserve Zinfandel.
