KREEPYLADY KRISTIN SILENT AUCTION AND RAFFLE:
This year the Horror Society is doing a raffle and silent auction for their good friend Kreepylady Kristin. She has played a huge role in the Chicago horror community, and with Horror Society as well, so they have gathered up some great items for the raffle and auction. She recently came upon some real rough times, losing her job, massive amounts of surgery from a life threatening condition, and now racked up a HUGE amount of medical bills. Without insurance (the company she worked for over nine years let her go), she is facing a huge uphill battle and struggling to pay off those bills. All proceeds of this raffle and auction will be going directly to her medical bills.
SILENT AUCTION ITEMS (more on the way):
24×36 Creepshow poster signed by George Romero
Day of the Dead vinyl soundtrack signed by George Romero
A Clive Barker standee signed by Clive Barker
Signed headshot of Ray Wise
Signed headshot of Elvira Mistress of the Dark
A $5 raffle ticket gets you a chance to win plenty of DVDs, posters, gift cards, gift certificates, and more.
