The Con or Bust auction, to raise funds for people of color to attend the SF convention of their choice, is currently open for offers from people interested in donating items for auction, and is also accepting direct donations.
The auction will open for bidding February 11, 2012 at 12:01 a.m. EST and closes February 25, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
The Con or Bust auction is in its third year of operation; the Carl Brandon Society took over the financial management of the auction after the first year. In 2011 $10,591.95 was raised, helping 16 people attend WisCon. This year, Con or Bust has expanded, allowing recipients to choose the SF convention they’d like to attend.
