Women of Wonder Day 2012 @ Heroes and Fantasies

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

Start Time: 12:00AM    End Time: 05:00PM

An ALL AGES benefit and celebration for Domestic Violence programs at Family Violence Prevention Services of San Antonio! The free all-ages event will include local artists signing comics and sketching art, as well as a silent auction of original art and collectibles. There will be costumed characters on-site, raffles prizes, a game show, costume contest, and more. Fred Bronaugh is chairing the event with Adam Conley.

On October 21, 2012, Women of Wonder Day — a part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month — will take place, returning to Excalibur Books in Portland, Oregon and Heroes and Fantasies in San Antonio, Texas!

In October 2006-2011, six annual Wonder Woman Day —and the renamed Women of Wonder Day — events raised over $135,000 for Domestic Violence programs in Portland, Oregon, Flemington, NJ, And San Antonio, TX. The six-year combination of auctions of over 1,400 original art pieces, plus collectibles, autograph signings, and photo opportunities garnered spectacular turnouts and six Portland Mayoral Proclamations!

2012’s contributions for auction include not only artwork featuring heroines from the world of comics — Wonder Woman, Storm, Supergirl, Spider-Woman, Scarlet Witch — but also from the world of media as well, including Katniss Everdeen from Hunger Games, Thundercats, the Bionic Woman, Uhura, Dana Scully, and others! Plus, TV series such as Glee, Criminal Minds, V, and others have donated special items as well! And the all-ages events will include artists and writers signing autographs at each event, as well as costumed characters with whom you can take photos!
