Long Beach, Calif., Oct. 11, 2010 — Twilight fans have a rare opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind red cloak worn in the Twilight: New Moon movie and signed by nine of the movie's leading actors.
The 5-foot, wool cloak has been autographed by Twilight stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, Ashley Greene, Elizabeth Reaser, Peter Facinelli, Michael Welch, Chaske Spencer and Alex Meraz. It was worn during the shooting of the San Marco’s Day Festival in Volterra, Italy.
Also up for auction is an 11x17 framed poster that is signed by 15 of the film’s actors, including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Dakota Fanning, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Elizabeth Reaser, Peter Facinelli, Nikki Reed, Chaske Spencer, Xavier Samuel, Bryce Dallas Howard, Alex Meraz, Jackson Rathbone and Kirsten Prout.
"Summit Entertainment and its leader, Rob Friedman, have been very supportive of our Special Olympics athletes for many years," said Bill Shumard, President/CEO of Special Olympics Southern California. "I’m confident that the cloak and poster will be popular items on eBay and will result in a significant donation to help individuals with intellectual disabilities who participate in our sports programs."
Both the cloak and poster come with a letter from Summit Entertainment to provide assurance of authenticity. Summit Entertainment, which produced the Twilight movies, donated the cloak, and proceeds from the auction will benefit the 13,000 athletes of Special Olympics Southern California.
