Thanks to Aaron, Mike, and Alex for the heads up
We are excited to announce LOST-A-THON (http://lostathon.com), a charity event and Guinness World-Record attempt centered around ABC’s primetime drama, LOST. Beginning at 12:47 AM on May 20, Mike Berlin, Alex Green, and Aaron Rosenthal will attempt to watch every episode of LOST back to back (approximately 94 hours), culminating with the live series finale airing on May 23 at 9:00 PM EST.
LOST-A-THON’s goal is to raise awareness of and generate $100,000 in donations for three great charities: The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, Doctors Without Borders, and The Nature Conservancy. In the process of completing this endeavor, we will earn a new Guinness World Record for the longest television watching marathon ever (the current record is 86 hours).
LOST-A-THON is taking place at Professor Thom’s bar at 219 2nd Avenue in New York City. We are planning live coverage of the event through an internet stream, with updates also posted to our website, http://lostathon.com and Twitter feed- http://twitter.com/lostathon.
We are looking for your support to gain additional media coverage of the event to help achieve our fund raising goals. Contact information and availability are included below, and additional information about donations, sponsors, the schedule, and the LOST-A-THON background, can be found at lostathon.com
