In line with Gene Roddenberry's goal “to create a brighter future,” all proceeds from the sale of Gene Roddenberry's items will be donated to The Roddenberry Foundation. The Roddenberry Foundation makes grants to support the four pillars of the Roddenberry Philanthropic Philosophy – Children, Education, Inspiration, and Environment.

“My father would be proud that his memorabilia will not only be enjoyed and cherished by Star Trek fans, but that the proceeds will benefit society on a larger scale,” said Gene's son, Rod Roddenberry.

Highlights will tour Ponte 16 in Macau, China.

In addition to the Roddenberry estate items, William Shatner has also consigned a selection of property from his life and career with a portion of the proceeds benefiting: “The Hollywood Horse Show”. His passion for horses and philanthropy were united through his involvement with AHEAD With Horses, a therapeutic riding charity that gives physically and mentally challenged children the thrill of riding a horse—and boosts their confidence and self-esteem, often with life-changing results.

William Shatner's Walk of Fame Plaque

Leading the collection of William Shatner is his 2005 FXDC Dyna Super Glide Custom Harley Davidson (Est. $12,000-$14,000). Boldly go where no man has gone before… riding William Shatner's motorcycle; the first FX Super Glide was produced by Harley Davidson in 1971.
