Charity Auction

It is our pleasure to announce that LepreCon 45 will be holding a Charity Auction to benefit Joshua Tree Feeding Program, Inc., which has been feeding the HIV/AIDS community in metro Phoenix since 1988.

100% of the proceeds will be given to this charity.

The Charity Auction usually has a pretty good selection of just about everything: lots of books, maybe some nice art, collectibles from movies and TV shows, and who knows what else might show up. The one thing you can count on is a good time. Everything will be on display in the Art Show until the auction begins.

There will be Charity Auction Program Guides available at Registration.

We will accept cash, checks and credit cards but not children or husbands. Winners will be able to pay for and collect their items right after the auction ends but not during the auction.

See you at the auction; don't forget your money. Bid often, bid high...
