• What we'll do
Hey Everybody...this event is back!
Greetings one and all! Welcome, once again, to a fundraising night of anime and good cheer!

For those of you who haven’t been to one of these before, this event is designed to help raise funds to cover the costs and supplement future events. We have had a lot of success in the past, and I hope that you continue to come out and help support our group!

That being said, after the last attempt, I needed to take a small break. Therefore, to make up for that, we are going to try and MAKE THIS ONE BETTER THEN ALL PREVIOUS ATTEMPTS!

How are we going to do that? WITH SOME NEW, MAJOR CHANGES!

First, the bad news. In order to help cover the overhead, I have had to institute a ONE DOLLAR CHAIR RENTAL COST. The venue supplies the chairs as a part of our rental agreement for the space, and while this fee will not make up for the whole amount, it will make things go smoother. Therefore, this fee will be collected at the venue the night of the event. Please RSVP so that we can make sure that there are enough chairs for everyone.
Also, we will continue to request small, additional and optional donations to offset the rest of the associated expenses. But wait! What will this event offer that makes the fee worth it?

First, we will once again be running a raffle with all sorts of goodies! In recognition of all previous donations, I decided to use those funds to make it worth your while. Therefore, we have the following prizes available for all!

Pet Girl of Sakurasou Complete Series on DVD
Chivalry of a Failed Knight Complete Collection on DVD
Beyond the Boundary Complete Collection on DVD
Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt: December Sky on DVD

All of these are completely, never removed the plastic, new!
I will post donation guidelines below. But as a main point, anyone who follows said guidelines will receive five free raffle tickets to use as they want!

Please note, to ensure this happens in future events, please be respectful and clean up after yourselves. Message me or write questions below for further guidelines or if you plan on participating.

Also like the last time, instead of having one feature film, we will be doing VIEWER’S CHOICE! A number of anime titles will be made available, and the crowd can choose between them as to what they want to watch. Use the time between episodes to mingle, fuel up and enjoy the evening that much more :)

Just to be clear, THIS WILL BE A PUBLIC EVENT! Members and non-members can mingle, allowing us to increase exposure! However, in recognition of the guidelines of the group, the participants will be encouraged to be eighteen and above before entering. Seats will be limited, but it will strictly be first come first serve. So get there early!

We are also working with the venue, Comicazi, to obtain a special discount on manga in the store for raffle participants during the event. While the final number is not quite set in stone, I assure you they tend to be generous. Look for details!


In order to help support our group, Comicazi has agreed to a hefty manga discount!
For only the night of the event, they are offering the following deals.

Just like last time, THIS EVENT WILL FEATURE A POTLUCK! We have cleared food use with the venue, and anyone who contributes WILL ALSO GET FIVE FREE RAFFLE TICKETS!

• Important to know
All chair rental fees will be paid on the night of the event. After some of the previous attempts, we have formalized the following two additions.
All cosplayers will receive five free raffle tickets!
Between the showings, trivia questions will be asked that will result in real prizes, such as venue gift cards and raffle tickets!

If you have any questions, please comment below or message me directly.
Please come out and show your support!
