ABC’s “Lily” Auction Is Underway

Daytime stars are known for their charitable causes, and one AMC fan favorite is adding another cause to the list. Leven Rambin, Lily, has organized the first annual Lily Auction to benefit Cure Autism Now.
AMC’s Lily suffers from autism spectrum disorder, which manifests with symptoms such as communication problems, problems socializing and restricted interests. Lily’s character, for instance, is very good with math and numbers, but does not interact well with people, surprises or loud noises/fighting. She also doesn’t like to be touched.
The auction is being held to benefit the Cure Autism Now foundation (CAN). The foundation's goal is to find a cure for autism by funding research projects, education and outreach.
Nineteen daytime stars from All My Children and One Life To Live have signed CAN puzzle pieces with an autism symbol and offered them for auction. The stars participating include fan favorites Leven Rambin, Bobbie Eakes, Thorsten Kay, David Canary, Walt Willey, Robert S. Woods, BethAnn Bonner, Bree Williamson, David Fumero and John-Paul Lavoisier among others. The puzzle pieces are currently up for bid on Ebay. The auction runs through April 23rd, and 100% of the profits generated from the auction will be donated to the CAN foundation.
