Although it’s the offseason, there are still some loose ends to wrap up from cons, and this one is a pretty big one. At Everfree Northwest 2013, the crew there held a big charity auction, and raised a bunch of dough. Well, now that money is in the hands of those who need it. The EFNW crew has delivered the proceeds of its charity auction, totaling $21,070, to the Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Meanwhile, several staff positions have opened, like web content administrator, secretary of the committee, director of information technology, and more. If you want to get involved with the staff, send an email to [email protected]. Check behind the cut for the full list of openings.
Charity Proceeds Delivered
The money raised from Everfree Northwest’s Charity Auction – a total of $21,070 – was formally donated today to Everfree Northwest’s chosen charity, Seattle Children’s Hospital. The money will go to aid the hospital in its mission to help prevent, treat, and cure disease in children. Specifically, the generous gifts of our lucky auction winners have gone to directly benefit the revolutionary research of Seattle Children’s Dr. Michael Jensen.
Imagine, for a moment, no radiation, no chemotherapy. Imagine the body’s own cells could be tailor-made to fight cancer at its source and allow a patient to move on to a normal life without the devastating, exhausting side effects of traditional oncology treatments. It’s through your generosity, dear Pony friends, that research like this can move forward:
We are proud and humbled to convey your loving gift to a truly worthy cause. This year you shattered last year’s already stunning $13,535 with a jaw-dropping $21,070. Needless to say, we are eagerly awaiting next year’s charity auction!
From Left to Right:
Markarian – Board President
Going Once – Charity Director and Auctioneer
Royal Coat – Convention Chair
Flips Sautee – Business Director
MLP Tales – Director of Support
Harmony Strings – Charity Coordinator
