It is my pleasure to bring to all the members a Charity Auction to benefit the Joshua Tree Feeding Program.
100% of the proceeds are given to this charity.
Joshua Tree Feeding Program
The goal of Joshua Tree Feeding Program is to provide nourishment to low-income HIV+ residents of Maricopa County. They provide balanced meals from their pantry as well as medical and community resources to encourage self-sustainability of their clients in a social, supportive and welcoming environment where privacy, cultural, spiritual and religious values are respected.
Their expanded services also give assistance to their client's pets, and provide food and supplies to keep the pets in low income homes to maintain the comfort and support they provide to those with HIV/AIDS.
In June of 2021 Joshua Tree Feeding Program opened up for the Trans and Gender Expansive Community. This way no one goes home hungry.
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, games and odd miscellany.
We'll be in the Events room on the CoKoCon Discord server. Check back for the exact time and date.
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 Catherine Book, CoKoCon, CASFS or WesternSFA for any item. If you have any questions, please ask via e-mail or inspect the item description and pictures prior to auction.
Here are a few items already available. Check back for updates. Images coming shortly!
See you at the Auction! Don't forget your money. Bid often, bid high...
