Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, Lisa Kudrow and David Schwimmer are offering six tickets to the taping of their forthcoming Friends reunion and a cup of coffee at Central Perk as part of the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.
“Hi guys. We are so excited to join the ALL IN challenge to help keep people fed and healthy during this time. We’re inviting you and five of YOUR friends to join the six of us on Stage 24,” Aniston posted on her social media accounts Tuesday.
“Be our personal guests in the audience for the taping of our @HBOMax reunion, as we reminisce about the show and celebrate all of the fun we had… and get the whole Friends VIP experience on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. We hope this brings a little joy, and something to look forward to. Go to AllInChallenge.com to enter… and donate whatever you can – $10, $25 – every dollar counts. 100% of proceeds will go to @nokidhungry, @mealsonwheelsamerica and #AmericasFoodFund which benefits @feedingamerica and @wckitchen.
“Can’t wait to meet and hug you guys when this is all over. Until then, keep Facetiming, calling, DMing, and texting your family and friends. We gotta stay connected.”
The reunion tickets and studio tour auction also includes a one-night hotel stay with three double-occupancy rooms and six domestic round-trip coach airline tickets.
The Friends auction page also mentions that if taping can no longer include a live studio audience due to limitations, “an alternative plan will be made with the cast to provide a different in-person experience.”
Eligible participants must be legal residents of Canada (excluding Quebec) or the United States who are 18 years of age or older.
The auction page also notes that the date for the reunion is currently not determined yet as the reunion special has been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Production for the reunion is being pushed back until May at the earliest.
On Friday, Feb. 21 at 2 p.m. (PT), each of the stars — with the exception of LeBlanc, 52 — took to Instagram sharing an identical promotional image from the smash-hit ’90s comedy series that showed the six beloved characters together, confirming they had all signed a deal with the media giant.
The images were all captioned, “It’s happening…,” including LeBlanc’s, who, instead, posted an image of some of the cast members from M.A.S.H. as a joke.

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are legally obligated to self-isolate for 14 days, beginning March 26, in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others. Some provinces and territories have also implemented additional recommendations or enforcement measures to ensure those returning to the area self-isolate.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
