In remembrance of Barry Bard and Ray Gish, and to celebrate her daughter, Nicole Snyder, overcoming cancer, LepreCon 34 chair Liz Hanson has selected the American Cancer Society to be the beneficiary of the LepreCon 34 Charity Auction.

To make things more interesting, this year’s auction will be a silent auction. As usual, items will be located in the art show on Friday thru Saturday morning, but this time bid sheets will be attached. On Saturday afternoon everything will be moved to another room for the final countdown. Bidding will close on items at set intervals and the last bid will win the item. In addition, several auctioneers have agreed to be available in case anyone needs help bidding.
