Our Charity Auction will be back again in 2017!!
We would like to thank everyone who helped make the MechaCon 2016 Charity Auction a huge success. Thanks to everyone’s generosity, we were able to raise $10,000 this year for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! We would also like to give a special thanks to Jonathan Klein. With his help, we have raised over $63,000 over the last 6 years!
All proceeds from this years Charity Auction will be going to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
On average, St. Jude treats over 750 patients from Louisiana each year. Louisiana is the state with the third highest number of patients treated at St. Jude.
Did you know that the daily operating cost for St. Jude is $1.8 million? Since the hospital opened in 1962, they have never experienced a short fall in operating costs which are primarily funded by public contributions. The greatest part about our work at St. Jude is:
No family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
