Domestic violence is a horrible thing. Too many people simply get stuck in bad situations. The 'Women of Wonder' events have been raising awareness and support for those in need. From 2006-2011, six events have raised over $135,000 for Domestic Violence charity programs in three states. If you live close to Portland, Oregon or San Antonio, Texas, you can take part in the events.
What are these events about?
Each event will feature original artwork that will be auctioned off. There will also be guest creators and costumed characters to add to the celebration.
These events take place Sunday, October 21, 2012! 100% of all monies raised goes to the 501(c)3 tax deductible charities.
You can swing by Excalibur Comics at 2444 SE Hawthorne Blvd from 12 - 6. There will be an enormous amount of original artwork donated by several creators (such as Billy Tucci, Chris Giarrusso, Daniel HDR, Dave Johnson and many more) as well as signed DVDs and CDs from other media contributions.
