Believe Again: A Celebration of the X-Files...

Now that I am officially a part of the IBG team, there is an obvious conflict of interest with me writing coverage on their charity events. However, as a writer and a sometimes-photojournalist, I can't just sit idly by and not post something! My fan(s?) wouldn't stand for it!

Earlier today-- November 14 2009-- in Beverly Hills CA, cast and crew of The X-Files reunited for charity. The event was billed as a Q&A and autograph session (for those who purchased VIP tickets), but a few lucky auction winners also got to participate in meet & greets with select panelists. Our event was moderated by Erin Fox and proceeds were split between Fezeka, OTSK, Kids Defense Team, and the Rape Treatment Center at Santa Monica-UCLA.

IBG Inc officially became a 501c3 of our own this year, so I want to encourage all of you to please visit our website and consider donating a small amount (we know times are tough, but really no amount is too small) so that we can continue to throw great events like this one for other very deserving shows and charities! Also feel free to check back there for information on our upcoming wave of auctions; all of today's panelists signed some memorabilia for IBG to auction off on eBay (as always, proceeds will be going to charity).

I would like to thank all of the panelists, special guests, volunteers, Philes, and our moderator for helping ensure the event ran as smoothly, and as relaxed, as it could. You all made my first official event as part of the IBG Team amazing, special, and of course unbelievable. Please sit back and enjoy some of my photos from the day:

IBG all together and being professional...

for about a minute ;)

Our amazing panel!!

This pretty much sums up the day:
exhausting, exciting, exhilarating!

Aw, thank you! I'm glad you had fun! And we did hear that Pacino, DeNiro, and some other big time celebs would be at the other charity event being held at the hotel (it overlapped with ours for a portion of the day), so I'm glad you got to have an extra sighting. I was trying really hard to conveniently bump into him on an elevator and drop my resume haha
