Each year, Oni-Con Charity Auction raises thousands of dollars to be put directly back into our community. In 2016, we raised over $4000 that went towards creating 300 Jared Boxes for Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital and to purchase jackets and Christmas presents for every child residing at Kidz Harbor over the holiday season.
For 2017, Oni-Con plans to continue supporting The Jared Box Project and Kidz Harbor. Additionally, we will support Houston-area school libraries that were affected by Hurricane Harvey via Donors Choose and other avenues. We will also donate towards a memorial scholarship fund for long-term Oni friend and security officer, Officer Phillip Molis, who passed away in the line of service earlier this year. He always had a smile on his face and often shared how much he enjoyed our convention. In addition to the Charity Auction, a donation box will be placed at Weapons Check and outside the rave for any congoer who would like to donated to Officer Molis’s Scholarship fund. Oni-Con sends our thoughts and prayers to his family.
