It is our pleasure to announce that CoKoCon will be holding a Charity Auction to benefit the Y-Achievers, a YMCA workforce program for disadvantaged young adults. 100% of proceeds will be donated to the Y-Achievers.
The Charity Auction is a live auction that's open to all CoKoCon members. Your bidder number is your badge number. There will be Charity Auction Program Guides available at Registration.
We guarantee that 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, collectible art and many other items. Everything will be on display in the Art Show until the auction begins.
If you wish to donate items (and all donations are tax deductible), please contact our Charity Auction Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Items will be listed here with photos as they're donated.
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 WesternSFA, CASFS or CoKoCon for any item. If you have any questions, please ask via e-mail or inspect the item prior to auction.
Here are a few items already available. Check back for updates. Click on each image for a larger version.
See you at the Auction! Don't forget your money. Bid often, bid high...
