LOST Prop Auction Brings in Over $1.5 Million

The auction had a staggering 1,174 lots that drew an enormous crowd, with many fans even dressing up as their favorite character. General admission for fans were $42, with portions of the proceeds going towards various charities in Hawaii, as that’s where filming took place. Registered bidders were able to attend with no fee.
