In support of the Fox Searchlight film Waitress, the Adrienne Shelly Foundation, a non-profit organization
dedicated to the memory of multi-hyphenate Adrienne Shelly, has partnered with CharityFolks.com to auction off one-of-a-kind aprons decorated, designed and
autographed by stars such as Keri Russell, Cheryl Hines, Jordana Brewster,
Lisa Kudrow, Amy Smart and more. Waitress
was Shelly’s final film before her untimely death in November of last year, and
her first writing and directing effort since 1999’s I’ll Take You There, starring Ally Sheedy.
The proceeds of the online auction will benefit the organization’s
mission to support the artistic achievements of female actors, writers and
directors through a series of grants to help finance student films and
independent film projects. Money will also supplement film school scholarships and awards, and
fund staged readings of deserving scripts. Bidding starts on Sunday evening, April 29 and closes on
Monday, May 14 at Eastern
time. For more information, click here.
