Even all this time the year 2007 is still proving fertile ground for Kathryn sightings. Just two weeks ago we covered another one that had come to our attention.
In what must have been one of the most hectic years in Kathryn’s life she managed to squeeze in over 30 public appearances, filming the equivalent of a whole season of Cold Case (the end of season 4 and the beginning of 5), and she filmed her scenes for The Assassination Of A High School President. That’s quite a journey. However, if you only looked at where Kathryn started and ended 2007 you’d almost think she hadn’t moved at all.
Mid-January 2007 saw Kathryn attend the Sundance Film Festival to promote her latest project, the movie Resurrecting The Champ starring Josh Hartnett and Samuel L Jackson. Sundance is held in Park City, Utah every year. In early December 2007 Kathryn was back in Park City, but this time it was for the annual Skifest event in the nearby Deer Valley resort.
The Skifest is a pro-celebrity skiing contest in aid of Waterkeeper Alliance, an organisation dedicated to protecting clean water sources around the world. It is held every year in early December and marks the start of the ski season and the opening of the resort. Alongside the actual skiing there are a lot of après-ski events such as a musical concert given by one of the celebrity guests. The event has it’s own website here.
It hasn’t been particularly easy to narrow the event to 2007 as Kathryn has not featured much and lots of the celebrities have attended multiple times, making it difficult to guess the year. After some exhaustive searching we are now certain of the year. Kathryn does not appear to have taken part in the skiing competition that forms the backbone of the event. Instead she was there to support the stars of other CBS TV shows Dylan Bruno from Numb3rs (above left) and Eric Close from Without A Trace (above right). CBS covers the Skifest with a highlights/infomericial show a week or two later. The photo below left shows Kathryn being interviewed by someone from CBS. If you have a copy of the TV show from 2007 then please contact us.
In the the Gallery there is now 3 pictures from the event and a page from the December 2008 edition of CBS’s Watch magazine. The magazine photo is just an illustration for the mention of the upcoming 2008 event. Yes, we know, 3 of the 4 are basically the same image just cropped differently. Beggars can’t be choosers and all that.
Thank you to Kareen_T for persevering in contacting KM UK about this.
Update (22 Feb 2013): We have an extra photo to add to the Gallery (the right-hand thumbnail below). The very visible time-stamp confirms that it was taken on the 12th of September 2007. Wait! What? Damn Americans and their bizarre date formats! It’s the 9th of December really.
Kathryn has clearly been in a very charitable mood of late. Quick, someone ask her for a few bucks!
Today (Saturday, 15th December 2012) Kathryn attended a Fashion Girls For Humanity (FGFH) event in aid of the victims of hurricane Sandy, which hit the Eastern Seaboard of the US of A last month.
FGFH, originally founded in the wake of the Japanese Tsunami of 2011, continues to raise money for good causes by organising sales of clothing donated by top fashion labels. You can read more about the FGFH on their website. Looks like Kathryn bought a few bags-worth. Hopefully we’ll get to see the results of the shopping sometime soon.
So far we have a couple of photos of Kathryn at the event now in the Gallery. We’ll add more if we get them.
Thanks to HATCh, Inc. for the heads-up and first photo (left), and to FGFH for the second one (above). And thanks to those KM fans that also contacted KM UK so we could share this with you.
Update (4 January 2013): The photo on the left has been upgraded to a much larger version.
I hope you’ve got your… errr… I have no idea what people wear or use at auctions.
Online bidding for the auction in aid of Paige Fortin comes to a close on Friday (5pm UK time, 30th November 2012). There are multiple items of Cold Case memorabilia in the auction donated by Kathryn herself.
Rather than repeat ourselves further, look at last week’s post about his auction for more details on the reasons behind the fund raising and the items on offer.
The auction is online at the Charity Auction Organizer website.
Happy… errr… what ever is appropriate for auctions. Gavelling?
Here we have a chance to own a bit of genuine Cold Case memorabilia signed by a certain Ms Kathryn Morris and help a good cause.
Just two months ago a young woman called Paige Fortin, from Amesbury, Massachusetts, was in a serious road accident which resulted in her losing much of her right leg. The community has rallied around to help Paige and her family but they still are faced with long term costs.
Amesbury-based artist Jon Mooers is putting his new gallery to use by running a charity art auction at the end of November (2012) to raise money. As well as works supplied by local artists Jon has used his Hollywood connections to get a few extras. For example there is a piece of concept art for the web series Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome by illustrator Peter Mitchell Rubin (Independence Day). But there are also multiple reasons for KM UK’s interest in this event.
Kathryn has donated eight “lots” of Cold Case memorabilia. Two crew caps, three sets of directors chairs & publicity photos, her own personal crew jacket, and a couple of embroidered patches . All signed by the actress herself. The jacket includes an inscription related to the cause.
You can find more details on the Art Of Paige website. The auction is online at the Charity Auction Organizer website where you can see the available lots (you may need to look at page 2) and there is a Let’s Help Paige Facebook page.
Images of the CC-related items in the auction are in the Gallery.
Update (10 Dec 2012): A larger photo of the back of the jacket has been added. Also there are 5 more images of items up for auction, including a Moneyball crew cap modelled by Johnny Messner. All are in the Gallery.
It’s been a couple of months since the last one but we return to our series of posts looking back on Kathryn’s public appearances in 2007. There’s been a few recurring themes that have cropped up: festivals, premières and motorsport. This one includes none of those. We’re re-visiting charity work instead.
DKMS is a charity set up to help fight blood cancer. The unusual initialisation is because the organisation originates in Germany as the Deutsche Knochenmarkspenderdatei gGmbH. In October of 2007 they ran their annual marrow donor campaign and visited the Warner Bros. Studios where Cold Case was filming it’s 5th season. Whilst there they bumped into a particularly lovely lady.
As you can see above Kathryn posed for photos with Xander and Carrie Denke, parents of twin boys that we presume are beneficiaries of DKMS help, and other supporters. 15 large images are now in the Gallery.
You can find more information about the DKMS organisation and their good works on their website.
