'Battlestar' Star Items On Block, For Charity


Amid the May 8-10 auction of Battlestar Galactica costumes and props in Pasadena, Calif., Sci Fi Channel series stars Grace Park ("Sharon Valerii"), Michael Trucco ("Samuel T. Anders") and Kate Vernon ("Ellen Tigh") are donating some items geared to their particular pet causes.

Park's offering one of her character's original flight suits to be auctioned off to benefit Harvest India, a humanitarian, non-profit organization based in southern India that also functions as a non-profit ministry in the United States.

Trucco will offer proceeds from his "Anders" Caprica Buccaneers uniform sale to Food on Foot, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing the poor and homeless of Los Angeles with nutritious meals, clothing and assistance.

Vernon picked the "Saul & Ellen Tigh" wedding rings and a certain blue dress from the "No Exit" episode as her donation, to help breast-cancer research.

A portion of overall auction proceeds will go to United Way. The auction will be streamed online at
