IBG's Conversation Series: A Huge Success!
Posted at 9:02 AM (PDT) on Monday, August 1, 2011
On Saturday, 30 July 2011, IBG gathered in Beverly Hills for a special, extended version of their ongoing Conversation Series, featuring Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny, along with special guest, Chris Carter, to raise money for SA-YES.
Unlike other Conversation Series events, this time there was no moderator - instead, Gillian and David asked each other questions, and engaged in a real conversation that was both hilarious and poignant.
They were later joined by Chris Carter, and the three chatted and answered questions from the audience. After the main portion, VIP ticket holders had the opportunity to partake in an autograph session with Gillian and Chris, and those who purchased separate photo tickets received one-on-one posed photos with Gillian Anderson!!
There were also meet-and-greets prior to the event, and two lucky raffle winners also received the opportunity to head backstage for their own brief meeting with Gillian and David.
Inspired by the creative opportunities to raise money for SA-YES, Gillian surprised those awaiting for their one-on-one photos with her by ducking into the room and auctioning off the paper she'd printed her questions for David on, offering to sign it and personalize the message!!
Over 32,000 USD has been raised from this event thus far, with upcoming auctions of signed memorabilia to come.
Some PHOTOS taken at the event.
Thank you very much IBG Inc.!!!
