April Silent Auction Fundraiser for Japan Relief [Updated]
Posted March 24, 2011
Kumoricon will be hosting a silent auction fundraiser on Friday, April 8, to benefit the Oregon Japan Relief Fund at Mercy Corps. We will be auctioning a limited number of high quality donated items and art.
The Kumoricon ♥s Japan auction will be held at:
Gaiser Student Center (Gaiser Hall)
1933 Fort Vancouver Way
Vancouver, WA 98663
Friday, April 8, from 6pm to 9pm
Voice actor Todd Haberkorn has graciously donated a chance to play a best 2 out of 3 Magic: The Gathering game with him at Kumoricon 2011. Yes, Todd is coming back! Please note that you must be a 2011 attendee to redeem this prize. Todd Haberkorn plays Italy in Hetalia, and was a huge draw at our convention last year even though the dub of Hetalia had not even been released. You may also know him from his roles as Watanuki in xxxHOLiC, Death the Kid in Soul Eater and Hikaru in Ouran High School Host Club. We are very excited that he will be joining us again in 2011 and that he is helping us with our fundraiser.
Our friends at Copic are donating for auction two copies of the book Shadows & Shading: A Guide to Lighting Placement, and two Copic gift packs each containing a fancy Copic Marker carrying case and four markers of different colors.
We will be running three mini-auctions through the evening, so you don’t need to stay to the very end to win something. You will need to be present at the end of an hour to win. We can only accept cash and checks. If you would like to help with this event or donate items to be auctioned off, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit this forum thread for the latest information as details are planned.
