Yaoi-Con: Charitable Auctions

Over the years, thanks to our relationships with both mangaka and their publishers, we've accumulated quite a variety of signed and/or rare items. In the past, you've seen some of these items auctioned on LJ for funds for the con, and earlier this year, for earthquake relief efforts.

We were awed and heartened by the generosity shown by you, our fans, during those dedicated auctions. So much so, that going forward,we'd like to devote our auction proceeds entirely to charity. Each month or so, we'll pick a new charity and donate the proceeds from that month's auctions to that charity.

To make the auctions go smoothly, we've changed from a standard LJ to a community. The rules and process remain the same: you must join the community to view and bid on items and communication will be handled through LJ's messaging system.

As a bonus, each month, all bidders (everyone, not just the winners) will be entered into a raffle for extra prizes. More details to come on this later!

The first round of auctions is coming up fast – Black Friday, November 25th – so sign up at the new auction community now and stay tuned for some sneak previews of the goodies to come!

If you wanted to be in the con hotel but didn't get a room before everything sold out, there's still time to get out of a reservation at
other hotels and grab this one.  If you're still looking for shared space in the con hotel, get together with others in a similar situation
and adopt this lonely little room as your very own.

This reservation will be canceled (the room will not be returned to the Y-con room block or available at con rate) if there are no takers by 11:59 PM Eastern, Monday, October 17.

Need to cancel Marriott Waterfront Hotel reservation

Anyone who wishes to go to Y-con and hasn't made a reservation or are staying at another hotel and wish to stay at the SF Airport Marriott Waterfront Hotel, I am unable to attend due to a scheduling error, which I found out recently, and inability to find coverage from work. I contacted Marriott reservations and was informed that my confirmation number would be needed and my name to make the change. Whomever then would use their own credit card for the reservation. If you're interested please PM me before 10/17. If there's a problem making the change, let me know.
