Grayhaven's 9.11 Charity Auction

Posted: Tuesday, October 2, 2001

Andrew of Grayhaven magazine has put together a wonderful charity event, to be followed by Onipress' pro charity event. This a chance for all to help out the victims of 9.11.01. They have over 250 terrific items ranging from comic books to videos to original art and toys.

Here's what Andrew has to say about the event....

All the money raised from the auction will go to the four charities listed below. If you feel like sending a donation without a bid, that's great, too. With any luck, we'll be able to do our small part (and then some) in helping the victims of this terrible tragedy.


If you want an item, email your bid to me at (that's double zero). You'll be notified that we received the bid. If someone raises the bid, you will be notified of that as well and you have the choice of raising the bid once again. Bidding will continue through until 11:59PM EST on October 7th. Those people with the highest confirmed bids at that time will win the item(s).

All items have a minimum bid next to them. This is the starting bid for each of the items. You can bid on an item at the price listed or raise it higher if you wish.

Some items have links directing you to an image or description of the items (like some of the original art work or Spawn toy sets). Be sure to click on.

Take a look through the entire list. Especially in the miscellaneous section, we have some great items (the Spider-Man theatrical poster, a Jay and Silent Bob poster autographed by Kevin Smith and personalized to the winner and a chance to win all the Oni Press comics and trades that they publish in 2002 (trust me, it's a fantastic prize). There are a ton of Comic Books from a plethora of different companies (yep, we have some Origin #1s, Green Arrow first prints, Miracleman #1 and many others) videos, CDs, original art, toys (including a fantastic duo of Spawn toy sets), statues/busts, books and a lot more. So take your time and look through them all.

Before your item(s) is shipped, we must receive payment in full for the amount of your winning bid. Checks or money orders can be made payable to one of the following:
The American Red Cross
The United Way
The Daily News Charities Inc
The Make a Difference Fund
- The Latter 2 Charities are set up specifically to benefit children and spouses of fallen firefighters, police officers and EMTs.

If nothing on the list strikes your fancy but you still want to contribute a small donation, you can mail us a check or money order made out to one of those organizations listed above. An address where payments can be mailed will be provided via email.

Good luck with your bids, have fun, and most of all, thank you for taking part in this event.
