Want to spend a day on the set of AMC’s “Hell on Wheels” in Canada, and the next day in the outdoors and having dinner with local movie star Anson Mount?
Donors to Mount’s charity of choice – Fighting Duchenne Foundation Inc. (FightDMD) – can enter to win the grand prize Canada trip through the end of August.
FightDMD is a Dickson-based nonprofit organization, founded by Terry Marlin in 2010, to raise money for Duchenne muscular dystrophy research. Mount regularly participates in the annual Dunk Duchenne’s Celebrity Basketball Game at Dickson County High School.
Mount, who grew up in White Bluff, stars as Cullen Bohannon in the television Western “Hell on Wheels,” which runs on AMC.
Mount is raising money for FightDMD through Omaze Inc., and offering several rewards to donors, in addition to the Canada trip.
Donors earn a chance to win the grand prize Canada trip with each monetary contribution, and increase their chances of winning based on the amount donated.
The grand prize includes a flight for two and stay in a 4-star hotel in September in Calgary, Canada, where “Hell on Wheels” is filmed.
The grand prize winner will be Mount’s VIP guest, and meet the “Hell on Wheels” cast and crew, tour the set, and dress up for a scene in the show; then spend the next day fly-fishing, horseback riding and skeet shooting, followed by dinner and cocktails.
Donors can contribute between $10 and $25,000 to enter to win the trip.
Donations over $25 include smaller prizes, based on the amount donated, like a digital Thank You card and/or video; limited edition Mac the dog and “Mount Anson” T-shirts (shirts autographed by Mount with a higher donation); autographed whisky tumbler set; pick the book for Mount’s book club; replica Union Pacific Railroad certificates; personalized voicemail greeting from The Swede (“Hell on Wheels” character) and/or Mount; personalized video from Mount and his dog Mac; autographed replica Cullen Bohannon (Mount) hat; along with limited supplies of the following – autographed hero map from “Hell on Wheels,” signed by the cast; Mount’s personal scripts from “Hell on Wheels” Season 5, autographed; limited edition Season 5 poster signed by the cast; Common’s (Elam Ferguson in “Hell on Wheels”) seat-back from “Hell on Wheels,” autographed; Mount’s personal hat, leather vest and/or coat from “Hell on Wheels;” and get a “Hell on Wheels” character named after you.
