Ghostbusters fans have a chance to hang out with Dan Aykroyd and tour the Ghostbusters prop archive while also helping out a good cause.
Aykroyd made the announcement on Friday, June 8 – official Ghostbuster’s Day – offering a lunch with the star along with VIP access to the Sony Pictures backlot to visit Ghost Corps HQ.
Ghost Corps HQ is the production company founded by Aykroyd and Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman. The Sony Pictures Museum features props from the films including the Ecto-1 mobile.
Donations from entrants go to the For The Win Project, which creates movie posters and trailers to give seriously ill, disabled and disadvantaged children the chance to be their favorite heroes.
The posters and trailers “create a new sense of hope, motivation and self-esteem boost for each child, while raising awareness and funds for whatever they may be up against. Your donation will help For The Win Project cover the costs of the materials necessary to transform these real life superheroes into celebrated, larger-than-life champions.”
Dan Aykroyd – who first envisioned Ghostbusters at his Kingston-area family home – joined with For The Win Project last year to help create a Ghostbusters movie trailer for Braeden Rios, an Iowa boy with bronchomalacia who’s a life long fan of the films.
The winner of this new contest will be flown to LA and stay in a 4-star hotel, have a photoshoot with the For The Win Project team, and go home with a Ghostbusters poster with them in it.
