The Dinner Date with Lucy auction to raise money for Greenpeace's Rainbow Warrior III is now live. Lucy's never auctioned herself off before for a dinner (that I can recall) so it's pretty special!
The current bid is $1850 but I somehow don't think it's going to stay there for very long. The auction runs from now till 21 September. So if you want to have dinner with Lucy either in LA or Auckland, now is your time!
Lucy Lawless has battled dragons, been aboard the Battlestar Galactica and now she wants to have dinner with you and a lucky guest! Have dinner with this Sci-fi superstar in LA January 23-27 or Auckland New Zealand November 2011 - June 2012.
New Zealand icon Lucy Lawless was the star of Xena: Warrior Princess, for which she has an enormous cult following. Lucy has also appeared in the classic TV series Battlestar Galactica and in the hit Adam Sandler movie Bedtime Stories. She can now be seen in her role as the morally ambiguous Lucretia on the hit series Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Gods of the Arena.
In addition to acting Lucy made her singing debut on the TV Show Celebrity Duets and followed that up with sold out concerts in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago and London. She has also performed at various benefits and most recently at the 2009 Planet A Concert in her native New Zealand.
Lucy is widely known in her home country for her work with The Starship National Children's Hospital and Greenpeace New Zealand with whom she has partnered on a number of campaigns. In 2009, along with other high profile New Zealanders, Lucy launched ‘SignOn’, a petition urging the government to attend the Copenhagen climate talks and commit to a 40% cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020.
More recently she helped in the fight against government plans to mine the best of New Zealand’s National Park land for low-grade coal. Together they managed to organize a march of more than 30,000 people who opposed the plan, resulting in the government backing down.
Lawless is passionate to raise money for the Rainbow Warrior III. "I want to see Greenpeace continue to battle the Oncelers (Dr Seuss) who are destroying our planet to please their shareholders. What are they doing with their profits? Building a spaceship to go to some secret planet we don't know about? This is all there is. And it's fragile. We've got to make things right – NOW!"
