Charity Raffle

To continue a great fandom tradition, CONfab is excited to bring you our Charity Raffle. Each con we raffle donated prizes like books, clothing, art, jewelry, fandom items, and more! All donated items come from our generous con attendees and friends who support the charity.

This year, 100% of the proceeds from our annual charity raffle to go to Howard Brown Health Center. Howard Brown is a great asset to Chicago and the LGTBQIA+ community, and offers many health services, as well as other services like support groups and a GED Program.

On Saturday evening during the Dance, we will give away donated prizes, which can be a variety of things (homemade crafts, fandom goodies, gift cards, books, etc.) and are all provided through the generosity of fandom.

Your registration comes with one raffle ticket! More tickets are available at registration and throughout the Con from our Raffle Coordinator, She!Sam. Each ticket is $1.00 USD. Simply write your username on the back of your ticket(s) and place in the cup located by the prize(s) of your choice. You can also earn ten free tickets for referring new CONfabulation attendee. Winners will be announced during the Dance Party on Saturday evening. You do not have to be present to win, but if you are not, your name must be on your ticket.
