Every year, ApolloCon holds a charity auction as a way to give back to the community. Our official 2008 charity is the Houston Area Women's Center. The agency provides help to survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Please visit their website for more information.
We are soliciting donations for the auction. If you have an item or service you wish to donate, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about it.
We will have a table set up across from the volunteer station with bid sheets. Bidding works as follows. Write your name and badge number on the sheet. If you are the first bidder, you may elect to buy an item for the "Immediate Sale" price listed on the sheet. Otherwise, enter your bid. Items not bought via the immediate sale option will either go to the highest paper bidder or will be auctioned off as part of the live auction. Some items are not available for immediate sale.
We have already received several donations and we'd like to thank those who have been so generous. Among the donations is a signed copy of Howard Tayler's Schlock Mercenary Presents... The Strohl Munitions Plasma Cannon Safety Coloring Book. This is the same book that was distributed at Apollocon 2007. We will be auctioning a Harry Potter quilt that measures 75.5 inches by 94 inches. Also, we have artwork by the milk-fairy man, Alain Viesca. We are still accepting donations. If you have any questions about donations, please don't hesitate to e-mail us at the link above.
