Auction at CopperCon to benefit East Valley homeless charter school

Pathfinder Infinite

Ari Marmell (’s been a while since we checked in on CopperCon 32, the Central Arizona Speculative Fiction Society’s celebration of science fiction and fantasy.

At the convention, now set for Aug. 31 to Sept. 3 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Avondale, there will be a charity auction to benefit Children First Academy, a charter school that aims to provide services to homeless children in kindergarten through eighth grade, with campuses in Tempe and Phoenix. The school provides services others don’t to its unique community, including medial and dental assistance, clothing, food, personal hygiene supplies and school supplies, and they try to make each child’s birthday special since that can be particularly difficult in their circumstances.

Some of the items for auction can be previewed at CopperCon’s website, and this page has information for those who wish to make donations. The auction will be held on the convention’s Saturday.

CopperCon tickets are $40 through Aug. 15 and $55 at the door. Youths 7-12 get in for half price and those 6 and younger get in free.There will be a $25 “gaming only” membership that offers access only to the gaming areas. The author guest of honor is roleplaying game designer and fantasy author Ari “Mouseferatu” Marmell (pictured), and the local author guest of honor is James Owen (The Chronicles of the Imaginarium Geographica).
