San Diego, July 22 — The CBLDF Art Auction receives a second printing!
The Hilton Bayfront, our original venue, and the workers at Unite Here Local 30 have announced a contract agreement, so the CBLDF Art Auction will be returning to the Hilton on Saturday, July 23, from 8pm-10pm.
All of the original comic art previously announced for auction will be up for bid, including those items for which bidding started at our party and silent auction on Thursday, along with additional artworks.
A gallery of the pieces up for auction can be found here.
The event free and is open to all — you do not need a Con badge to attend!
CBLDF has also extended online bidding! To participate in the auction remotely, send your bid to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
HIGHEST donation you would be willing to bid
Don’t forget to put [AUCTION] in the subject line!
If the high bid on the auction floor is below your highest bid, your final bid will be 10% higher than the last highest bid on the floor up to the amount of your highest bid. All bids must be delivered to email@example.com by 6:00 pm PACIFIC July 23 to be eligible. We will contact you immediately after the auction with any winning bids.
Thank you again for your understanding about the changes in date that we made out of respect for the union and hotel negotiation process — we appreciate your support!
