We are excited to announce that the Anime Boston 2011 Charity Auction raised a total of $14,076.70 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater New England Chapter. The money was raised through our Charity Auction, Charity Raffle, Melody Ball tickets, and donations. It was by far our best year ever, at a 60% increase from the 2010 total and a 30% increase from our previous record total in 2009!
We'd like to thank all of our donators including Jonathan Klein, Comicopia, Animadness, Tokyo Kid, our guests, attendees and staff. And a special thank you to everyone who helped make this possible with your generous bids and raffle ticket purchases.
We made a number of changes to the Auction and Raffle this year, including moving the auction to Saturday afternoon and implementing a new texting system for raffle winners. We'd appreciate your feedback for what you liked or didn't like, and any suggestions you have. Please feel free to post to our forum thread or to contact the Charity Auction Coordinator.
Thank you all!
