PenguiCon Charity Auction - Geeks, SF Fans and Gays - Oh, My! Please watch this space for this years action time, item list w/ photos, and item preview times.

This year's charities:

Ruth Ellis Center

Triangle Foundation

This year, thanks to a generous donation of artwork by two local fans, PenguiCon will be holding a Charity Auction to benefit two organizations that work on behalf of Michigan's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens.

Ruth Ellis Center is one of only four shelters for LGBT youth in the entire country. Roughly 40% of young people who are homeless are LGBT, and their are few places they can go to receive help and be accepted for who they are. The Ruth Ellis Center is just such a place.

Triangle Foundation is Michigan's largest LGBT advocacy organization. Triangle helps victims of hate crimes statewide, fights anti-gay legislation, provides extensive programs for youth and produces the state's largest gay events.

The auction will be held on Saturday, April 21. Entrance is free for Con members (people who have paid to attend the entire convention) and $10 for the general public. Your $10 ticket is also good for entrance to PenguiCon's dance right after the auction.
