cheers Another day closer to drawing and another entry. No matter how the drawing goes everyone comes out a winner here. Those who donate get the satisfaction that they helped a really cool couple through a rough time. Let's keep going strong here. :clap:

Another day closer. :buzzing: :buzzing: :buzzing:

Get those entries in so you have time to sit back and enjoy the drawing.

John, are you going to video the drawing? Would be cool to see and might shed some light on the Empire State Collecting club as well. Don't know who they are, but found a cool blog article about them. (hope this is them)

If I win the case I'm flipping it for sure Smile

Apologies for getting in so late with this. I used to be pretty engaged when it came to these kind of collector fundraisers but a few things burnt me out recently. No need to go into it here but I just want to make a point that JP has done a great point in pushing this. Well done to him.

And to Larry and Crystal - good luck and best wishes. You guys sound like absolute champions and it's great to see so much love going around on TIG. I don't post here much anymore but some of the guys here are among my best friends in the hobby Smile

I've shared this link on my blog and my FB personal page also.

Good luck and well done to all!

Christian

Not sure what time the drawing will be, but good luck to all. Want to say thanks to everyone who has contributed. If you didn't get in with a donation in time for the auction, feel free to still send out a donation to Larry and crystal. John confirmed that a video was going to be made, but probably won't be a big thoroughfare. I don't know if the video will feature some of the collector club or not, but might be cool to meet some of those members.

I want to thank you all for all the support you have given the out pouring of donations and blessings have been a huge help, I am truly blessed to belong to such a wonderful family here.

The stresses have been so great that I haven't been doing much of anything, but now I am starting to get back to having fun and helping out where I can, which includes doing events here in the city as both a star wars and now a super hero character all to support of the children's hospital.

Again thank you and Congrats to Jesse as well you are all winners in my book though Smile

First I would like to say thanks to John publicly (already said it in pm) for putting this on to help Larry and crystal.  Thanks to this, and other, great community(s) for showing support to a great couple.  What a cool thing that we raised the amount of money we did.  I should mention that other than entering in the contest I really had very little to do with this thing other than bumping it here, on rs, and on the super powers website as frequently as I felt I could without getting in trouble for to many bumps.  

Huge congrats to Jesse.  Hope this case finds a wonderful place in your collection.  

Biggest congrats to Larry and Crystal.  Larry is like family (you know that crazy uncle that is in every family lol! ) to some around here and I have had the great opportunity to get to know him some with my latest off topic focus.  He is a great guy and couldn't be more deserving.  I am sure I can safely say that the entire TIG family wishes both Larry and Crystal all the best and we hope that you guys know how much y'all mean to us around here.

I said it before, but everyone who contributed to the raffle really came out winners in this thing.  It was a pleasure to be included and be able to take part.

WOW! This case will be so enjoyed in my Vader collection!

I'm proud that we raised nearly $3000 for the Gillises, it's says so much about the collectors in our community. Well done everyone!

Stef (and really everyone)

There are never "tiny" donations. Ever. Thanks for adding in a little extra for them.

Again , thank you to everyone who put something into the fundraising rounds. It makes me feel very good that we helped the Gillis' and I hope you all are sharing in that feeling. When people say that we are a collecting "community" or "family" the first thing in my head is that we help and support each other. That's what a community and family does.

Kudos everyone, well done!

Amazing amount raised for one item. Once again good luck to the family.

Despite not winning it, it's great to see the prize go to someone with a Vader focus.

PS: I just sent an extra dollar Walkie. Wink


Roll on the next raffle.
