“We’re staying awake… so that they don’t get put to sleep.”
Filmmakers and co-hosts Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen), Joe Lynch (Mayhem, Point Plank) and Arwen the Yorkie will once again be staying on the air live for two days straight in an effort to help save abandoned and abused Yorkshire Terriers. The annual two-day-long variety show will feature well over 50 celebrity artists and special guests appearing around the clock and performing live comedy, live music, live film commentaries, live script readings, live special FX/art demonstrations, live interviews, and more.
In addition to the non-stop live entertainment, Yorkiethon 5 will once again offer Arwen’s Silent Auction where fans can purchase or bid on donated items such as autographed movie memorabilia, records, artwork, apparel, and so much more with all proceeds going to Save A Yorkie Rescue.
“After such a difficult year we’re more excited than ever for Yorkiethon 5,” says co-host Adam Green. “We’re going to end the dumpster fire that was 2020 on a high note by bringing our community together to save a whole bunch of dogs and we’re going to have a ton of fun doing it.” While the list of artists that appear during each year’s 48 hour Yorkiethon is always kept as a surprise, the hosts are looking at this year’s hurdle of social distancing as something positive. “Normally our mandate has been that all appearing guests during Yorkiethon must be in the studio with us,” says co-host Joe Lynch. “However, with the pandemic eliminating that option, this year we have the opportunity to virtually bring on guests no matter where they happen to be located in the world physically.”
To date, The Movie Crypt’s annual Yorkiethons have raised well over $100,000.00 for the non-profit, volunteer dog rescue that specializes in rescuing abandoned and abused Yorkshire Terriers.
The live stream for Yorkiethon 5 will be available for all to listen to (and watch during select video segments) on ArieScope.com where links will be provided to either donate money or bid on items in Arwen’s Silent Auction and help Save A Yorkie Rescue.
