We’re proud that in the past nine years, this incredible effort by volunteers has raised more than $22,000–while hobbyists have taken home startling goodies–thanks to the generosity of many donors and friends of WonderFest.
For the RAFFLE, model and toy-related companies donate hundreds of pieces of merchandise to be raffled off. There are kits and supplies with cash values in the hundreds of dollars you won’t believe. In addition to the raffle, a SILENT AUCTION of extra-special donated items will be held that can include movie-related artifacts, original art work, masks, autographed books and more.
