Local News - Last Mile High Comics Poker Tournament and Auction of the Year Next Saturday
Several news items today from
Mile High Comics.
Of greatest importance is our upcoming
Holiday Gifts Auction,
which we will be hosting at
on Saturday, December 16th, starting at 11:30 AM. We intentionally include a large number
of brand new action figures, statues, mugs, etc. in this wonderful
as it is designed for everyone to be able to pick up some last-minute stocking stuffers at
unbelievably low prices. We sold about 800 items in last Year's auction for only about $3 each,
so it is definitely a once-a-year opportunity to score great collectibles for next to nothing!
Please save the date, as we will have a slew of photos of
for you early next week...
Our other exciting event on the 16th will be our
December Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament.
The tournament will begin at
at 11 AM on the 16th, and should be over by 3 PM. Cost to play is only $25, but even this nominal
fee is reimbursed to you in the form of a $25 Mile High Comics gift certificate if you register
in advance at any one of our
three Denver-area retail stores.
In effect you get to play for free! Winner earns a $500 Mile High Comics shopping spree! Second
gets $200, 3rd-5th $100 each.
So you know, this month's tournament is a special benefit for Nicole Murray-Ramirez, Queen Mother I
of the Americas. Nicole is the head of the entire 30,000-strong
Imperial Court System,
and in that esteemed role periodically visits all 72 of our
in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. During her visits she very generously passes out awards
to worthy members of each local Court, and also passes out small scholarship awards. That having
been said, I decided that I would dedicate this
earnings to help to bolster
the Queen Mother's awards fund. I hope that you join us, and help our Queen Mother continue her
awesome good works. Thank you!
A few donations of warm clothing for the poor!
My final news item for today is a request for a few more donations of warm weather clothing. As
I mentioned a few weeks ago,
"Feeding Denver's Hungry"
passes out warm weather clothing every winter to the 1,000+ elderly, disabled, and indigent people
that we serve. While we have already received a substantial quantity of jackets, sweaters, hoodies,
hats, gloves, and scarves, we are nowhere near being able to help all of our 1,000 people in need.
If you at all can, please bring in any good condition used warm clothing that you might have to our
Jason St. Location,
and put them in the box at the front of the store.
Dollar Tree thermal socks
We would also very much appreciate your stopping by your local
Dollar Tree store,
and purchasing a few new hats, scarves, gloves, and (most especially...) thermal socks. Bring your
receipt for those items in to
any of our retail stores,
and we will immediately give you a
Mile High Comics gift certificates that will reimburse you for 100% of your cost for these items.
We desperately need donations of at least 1,000 pairs of socks by Christmas, so we are hoping that
the generous members our
Mile High Comics
community can help us in meeting this very worthy goal.
