LepreCon 27 Charity Auction Items

Last year’s Charity Auction raised just under $700 for our charities, The Nature Conservancy and Reading is FUNdamental.  This year our sole charity will be Reading is FUNdamental.  We’ll be auctioning off books, art, posters, toys and other Science Fiction and Fantasy memorabilia.  Most of these items will be on display Friday and Saturday in the Art Show.  The auction will take place at 4:00 p.m Saturday in Navajo 1.

Reading is FUNdamental (RIF) develops and delivers children’s and family literacy programs that help prepare young children for reading and motivate school-age children to read.  By the end of this year, RIF will have provided new, free books and other essential literacy resources to more than 5 million children and their families.  For more info, check out their web site at www.rif.org.
