The Power-Con charity auction has proven to be a lot of fun each year and we expect this year to be no different. We hope everyone will come out to bid for fun and rare collectibles from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and ThunderCats. 50% of all money raised goes to Keep a Child Alive which is dedicated to providing life-saving HIV treatment, care, nutritious food, support services and love to children and families affected by HIV in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and India.
Even if you are on the fence about participating, we strongly recommend you sign up for a bidder paddle to have handy just in case. That way if you want to jump in on the bidding action, you will be prepared. Plus the bidder paddles always make for great Power-Con mementos.
To expedite the registration process we have a bidder form to fill out and submit to the Registration desk at Power-Con. You can download the form by clicking on this link, then fill it out ahead of time and submit it to Power-Con at the convention. Alternatively, forms will be available at the Registration desk that you can fill out when picking up or purchasing a pass to the convention.
Only give your form to a Power-Con official wearing a STAFF badge at the Registration desk. All submitted forms will be kept secure and destroyed thirty days after Power-Con ends. When you submit your form, you will also need to show your credit card and photo ID (US driver’s license or international passport) for verification purposes. After that, you will be assigned and provided a bidder paddle to use in the auction. Anyone participating in the auction must submit a registration form as we do not keep your information on file from prior conventions.
The auction takes place Saturday, September 14th, 2013 at 3:30pm and will be followed immediately by the cosplay contest at 6:00pm. So be sure to submit your form to the Registration desk between the hours of 10:00am and 3:00pm the same day of the auction.
And for those who cannot attend Power-Con, you will be able to participate online thanks to Big Toy Auction. More information will be coming soon, and be sure to check out Big Toy Auction for plenty of great auction opportunities all year long where you can win tons of collectibles at amazing prices!
Whether you bid or not, we hope to see you at the auction. It helps support Power-Con and a fantastic charity. Come join in the fun!
