Win an original True Blood pilot script signed by Alan Ball

Win an original True Blood pilot script signed by Alan Ball

January 11: This raffle is now closed. Due to unforeseen circumstances regarding PayPal we were not able to extent the duration of the raffle.

E.J. Scott will draw the winning raffle ticket numbers as soon as we have received all the entries. All five winners will be notified and the  winning raffle ticket numbers will be published on the Vault after we contacted the winners.


The Vault is giving away five very special unique collectors items in an online raffle of which ALL the proceeds will go directly to the Choroideremia Research Foundation.

HBO and Alan Ball graciously provided us with an original script of the pilot episode of True Blood and a BluRay of True Blood season 1 both signed by the creator of the show himself: Mr. Alan Ball. True Blood actress Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica) gives away a personalized t-shirt and headshot. And we have an extra prize donated by the wonderful folks of EyeCon: A bottle of Tru Blood signed by Sam Trammell, Nelsan Ellis, Ashley Jones, Todd Lowe and Allan Hyde.


Everybody worldwide can participate and win one of these True Blood collectors items. But first let me tell you something about the Choroideremia Research Foundation (CRF).

Choroideremia is a degenerative hereditary eye disease that attacks the peripheral vision and slowly erodes it over time until total blindness.

Scientists discovered the exact location of the Choroideremia gene on the X chromosome in the early 1990’s. New research based on these findings now drives the search for a treatment. However, at present there is no effective treatment or cure.

ejdebBut with the proper funding the CRF is potentially within two short years of human clinical trials to CURE Choroideremia!

Deborah Ann Woll’s boyfriend E.J. Scott has Choroideremia and so do several of his family members. I interviewed E.J. some time ago and he told me how he life has changed from the moment he was diagnosed. You can read the interview here.

    Excellent idea. Kudos to all involved. The raffle ticket price is a modest amount, making it easier for everyone to participate, and even do so more than once. I am grateful for the PayPal button … that makes contributing a lot easier for me.

    Thank you for this raffle for such a worthy cause!!! This disease doesn’t get nearly the press it should. My husband and his brother have this disease. It’s awful to watch the effects of its progression and what the eventuality will be. Here’s hoping for a cure within our lifetime!

    I´m so grateful for the Paypal-button. I´m from Germany so it´s kinda tricky everytime I try to order/ buy sth. from the U.S. Of course I´ll support this project and ´ll buy some tickets.

    Nice x-mas, everyone!

    I had the opportunity to go to the Eyecon convention in Florida and was there when the bottles were signed.The cast members that were there were some of the nicest people .I had never heard of this disease before I went however came home with a new appreciation for my sight ..I wish all the people that suffer from or that know someone that suffers from this disease the very best and that they will some day find a cure.
