Bid on Dresses From 'Mad Men' To Benefit Lung Cancer Research

08/11/2010 at 03:30 PM ET


Banana Republic may have just launched a Mad Men-inspired collection, but ’60s lovers can now get their vintage fix with actual dresses from the hit AMC show! Mad Men‘s producer, Lionsgate, has joined forces with Auction Cause to host the first official Mad Men charity auction to benefit the Lung Cancer Program at City of Hope. The 10-day eBay auction begins August 12 at 7pm PST and features vintage ’60s furniture and props from the show’s Sterling Cooper ad agency, as well as three iconic dresses worn by Mad Men‘s leading ladies—including the metallic brocade dress worn by Bobbie Barrett for a night out on the town with Don, a teal evening gown worn by Betty at the Stork Club, and a green frock worn by Joan in the famous lawn-mower episode. “This auction offers Mad Men fans an exciting new way to connect with the series while helping to support City of Hope’s important work in research and treatment of lung cancer,” said Sandra Stern, Lionsgate’s COO of TV. While we wouldn’t advise wearing these looks to work, it would definitely be fun to have an official Mad Men dress for your next costume party! —Jessie Goldberg

What a brilliant idea to raise money for such a worthwhile cause. I love Mad Men and the fashion of the era, so will certainly be looking to add to my wardrobe or home decor! Congratulations to those involved and good luck with the auctions.

Thank you! Alot has been done for breast cancer research and has made a world of difference in the life expectancies of the women dealing with that illness. I am one of the 15% surviving lung cancer thanks to early detection and surgery. Most, 85%, are not as lucky as there are few symptoms until it is too late. Please be generous. This is a fabulous opportunity to own a piece of pop culture from the sixties as well as the 2010’s!!

With a 96% survival rate to breast cancer, and only a 15% rate to lung cancer research-much thanks to what you are doing. My 35 year old son died of lung cancer in June/09; no signs and only lied 7 months, which was a stage 4 by then. Again thank you for your proceeds going to a much needed cause.

My husband suffers from lung cancer (he never smoked a day in his life). I hope this auction brings in a good amount of money for this cause. We need a cure!!!
The dresses are beautiful, and Mad Men is my favorite show!!!
