JordanCon’s main charity fundraiser event is the silent Charity Auction, which is held all day Saturday, from 10 AM - 7 PM, in the Grand Ballroom, alongside the art show and dealer's hall. Items for the auction are donated by Tor, Team Jordan, and generous collectors, artists, and craftspeople. In past auctions, we have sold items such as Robert Jordan’s hat, Robert Jordan’s cane, prints of the Wheel of Time eBook covers, hand-made shawls, handmade beadwork, and rare notes and memorabilia from Jordan’s collection. Items are listed individually for attendees to bid on throughout the duration of the auction.
All proceeds from the Charity Auction go to a designated charity each year, usually benefiting the Mayo Clinic's Amyloidosis Research. Our 2016 Charity Auction raised $2,871 for Amyloidosis research at the Mayo Clinic and in the previous eight years, JordanCon has raised over $20,000 for medical care for authors & their families or Amyloidosis research with its charity events.
