Topic: Phantasm & Horror Movie Celebrity Autograph Auction!



Crestline, CA - The Crestline Creative Arts Foundation was founded as a community organization to encourage, train and support local youth in the visual and performing arts. Funds are raised by members to host free film camps for local students of the San Bernardino mountains in Southern California.

As part of their fund raising efforts, CCAF President, Gigi "Fast Elk" Bannister, and Vice President, Reggie Bannister, spent the better part of a year collecting autographs of horror film celebrities on a hand carved wooden Harley Davidson motorcycle. The beautifully crafted bike was donated by local vendors to the foundation for the purposes of auctioning off. Photos of the motorcycle, and the autographs collected, can be found on the Foundation's website at
