Buy Daniel Craig’s Tuxedo — Wear It!

A fundraising gala for Britain’s National Film and Television School on June 17 features Daniel Craig’s Casino Royale tuxedo–it’s fitted (!)–and a proof of the first Harry Potter novel signed by author JK Rowling and more.

Celebrities expected to attend the auction include Hugh “Almost Bond Before He Blew It” Grant, Stephen “Should Be A Darn Funny Villain” Fry, Rowan “Did You See Me In NSNA?” Atkinson and more.

The question is, what would you most likely do with Craig’s tux?

1) Wear it!

2) Closet it!

3) Be buried in it!

Collectibles for Little

A pal is looking to sell a collection of hundreds of James Bond memorabilia items for just a few hundred dollars in total! An item separate from the pack is a selection of 8 celluloid clippings from THE SPY WHO LOVED ME through FOR YOUR EYES ONLY. A projectionist had to manually splice the clippings together and these splice remainders represent 1/24th of a second of real Bond film. These are truly one of a kind as no two projectionists splice in the same spot. I guarantee you don’t have these so write in soon.

“Doubleshot” Helps Benefit Charity

A James Bond adventure trip is being auctioned at The Bridge Youth and Family Service event titled “We Believe in Magic.”

The fund- raiser set for 6 p.m. to midnight March 11 at the Chaumburg Regency Woodfield, 1800 Golf Road, Chicago IL. Raymond Benson, a Buffalo Grove author of the latest set of James Bond novels is married to The Bridge`s Development Director Randi Frank. While researching his latest book, due out in June, called “Doubleshot,” the couple did research on location in the south of Spain.

Now the Bridge is re-creating that trip to raise funds for an auction. Tickets to the event, which feature three magicians, are $125. Tickets for the auction are $100. Proceeds from the event help the counseling center`s operations. The not-for-profit center helps youths and their families. The trip includes a six-night stay with breakfast for two at the Hotel Puente Romano, a five-star Grand Luxe hotel in Marbella, Spain. Located in the Mediterranean, the resort hotel offers a beach club with jet skis, water-skiing, and wind surfing; a tennis club and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

There are also more than 30 golf courses. The winners will also have the chance to visit the Spanish locations of the next 007 novel, being published by Putnam. To order tickets to the magical dinner dance, call Frank at The Bridge at (847) 359-7490.
