Thanks to some amazing last-minute donations, both monetary and in-kind, we ended up being able to provide help for WisCon to everyone who still needed it as of late March—a full sixteen (16!) people, including several first-time con attendees and our first person from outside North America. We raised $10,591.95 total, in addition to donations of memberships and housing.
My sincerest thanks to everyone who contributed in any way, whether offering items for auction, bidding on items, directly donating, or spreading the word: it all helped make this year's auction and associated fundraiser the most successful so far.
(I hope to have detailed information about the expansion plans very soon; please watch this space.)
