Come out Hall D of the TCC Sunday at noon for three hours of fun and fantastic bargains, all while helping out a good cause — Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children, a leader in research and treatment.
The artists of Artist Alley will be creating a large panel "jam", as they have done in previous years, that will arrive just before the auction.
Your favourite voice actors will be appearing as auctioneers. Depending on how much you contribute, they may even autograph your prize!
In 2014, we raised over $12,000. How much can we raise this year?
This year thanks to the generosity of LG Canada, during the Charity Auction we will be auctioning off a 65” LED TV! Please note that this item will be in use during the convention in the Gaming area and the winner is responsible for transporting the item home themselves; Anime North cannot offer delivery.
Many of the items auctioned off are donated by the dealers in the Dealers Room. While Anime North can offer them some recognition for their generosity, Canadian tax laws do not permit the convention to issue charitable donation receipts for tax purposes. In plain English, the dealers who donate are doing so purely for charity. Specifically, we would like to thank Funimation, for their generous donations helping to raise money for this very worthy cause. Click here for the complete list of contributors.
Additionally, we would like to thank those fans who have offered items to be auctioned as well.
Here's a preview of some of the fabulous items up for bids
Methods of Payment
In addition to cash (US cash accepted at par) we also accept payment by Canadian debit card (bank cards). Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that a US or other foreign debit card will work, nor can we accept credit cards.
Hospital for Sick Children Foundation
Anime North is proud to be among those organizations raising money for the Toronto based Hospital for Sick Children Foundation. Our many activities for "SickKids", as it affectionately known as, has raised over $80,000 in the previous years.
The Hospital for Sick Children is a health care, teaching, and research centre dedicated exclusively to children and is one of the largest international pediatric health science centres in the world.
In addition to the Anime North Charity Auction, we hold many other charity events for this great organization!
