It is my pleasure to bring to all the members a Charity Auction to benefit ASFA. 100% of the proceeds are given to this charity. ASFA is the Association of Science Fiction Fantasy Artists and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, educational corporation. ASFA was organized for artistic, literary, educational and charitable purposes concerning the visual arts of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Mythology and related topics. The organization is dedicated to providing a communications link among its members, as well as providing helpful information and technical assistance. Part of ASFA's purpose is to stimulate the public's interest in these areas of art. They're also there to encourage and develop amateur artistic talent, educate the public, publishers, patrons of the arts and anyone interested in works of these particular types of art and craftsmanship in the rights, needs and problems of the people involved in the creation of this material.
I can pretty much guarantee everyone who shows up will have a good time and plenty of opportunity to bid on and take home cool stuff. We'll have books galore, Space Science items, fantasy art, signed photos of favorite TV actors, collectible art, and lots of movie memorabilia. Everything will be on display in the Art Show until the auction begins.
There will be Charity Auction Program Guides available at Registration. The auction is scheduled for Saturday, 3:30-5:30pm in Ballroom B..
If you want to donate, please drop me an email thru this website.
All books that are presented as a First Edition are done so at the best judgment of our Charity Auction Director. No guarantee is made by Catherine Book, Leprecon, Inc. or LepreCon33 for any item. If you have any questions, please ask via e-mail or inspect the item prior to auction.
