Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett, stars of the science fiction show Stargate Atlantis, are currently auctioning off a chance for a fan to have lunch with them in Los Angeles.  The auction will raise funds for the nonprofit organization Friends of Sarah Geary.

Joe Flanigan played Lt. Colonel John Sheppard in Stargate Atlantis; David Hewlett played Dr. Rodney McKay.  The two appeared in 99 episodes of “Stargate Atlantis” before the show’s 2009 finale.

From charitybuzz: Joe and David are joining with countless others to help their friend Sarah Geary survive a devastating diagnosis of ALS, a motor-neuron disorder that destroys the brain’s ability to control the rest of the body. Without disability or life insurance, Sarah and her family do not have access to the critical care needed to prevent her ALS from becoming fatal. The funds raised through charitybuzz will go directly to giving Sarah the care she needs.

Fans can bid to have lunch with Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett through October 14 at charity auction site charitybuzz at: http://www.charitybuzz.com/catalog_items/223701 . For more information about Friends of Sarah Geary, visit http://www.charitybuzz.com/auctions/joeflanigan.
