About Abrams and Liberty Hill
JJ Abrams and his wife Katie McGrath have been long-time supporters of The Liberty Hill Foundation. Liberty Hill’s mission is to combat poverty and injustice in Los Angeles. Abrams has given his financial support as well as previously offering other auction items from his projects, including a walk-on part for Alias and a set visit for Lost. The Star Trek ticket auction is just one of nine celebrity auctions going on for Liberty Hill, others include a Garth Brooks guitar and meeting Elton John in Vegas. Last week Abrams attended Liberty Hill’s Upton Sinclair Dinner, where David Simon and Ed Burns (creators of the highly acclaimed HBO series The Wire) were given the Upton Sinclair Award for “focusing on urban neglect and calling to question the failure of key public institutions to address the real priorities of modern American cities.”
