Local News - Auction and Poker On Saturday to Benefit Kids Christmas Fund


This Saturday we will be hosting a very important benefit event at Mile High Comics for the hundreds of children and teens served by Rainbow Alley. Rainbow Alley is an after school support group for kids here in Denver who are gay, lesbian, transgender, or gender-questioning. Many of these kids have been alienated from their birth families, and thus find themselves totally alone during Christmas. The awesome members of the Colorado Gay Rodeo Association stepped into this holiday void several years ago by putting on a special potluck dinner for the Rainbow Alley kids. I have personally helped CGRA serve food to the kids for the past five years, and have watched this truly heartwarming event grow from helping just 30 kids in the first year, to over 200 children last year!

As a part of the holiday dinner, the staff of Rainbow Alley pass out small presents to each of the children. For many of these kids, that little token of appreciation is the only holiday gift that they will receive this Christmas. That having been said, our annual Mile High Comics auction event is the primary source of funding for the holiday presents that are given to the Rainbow Alley kids attending the annual Christmas potluck dinner. We raised over $2,000 during the benefit portion of our November comics and toys auction last year, and I hope that we can at least match that number for 2018. If you at all can, please stop by Mile High Comics Jason St. this Saturday morning and help these abandoned kids have some holiday cheer. The auction preview begins at 10 AM, with the first items coming up for bid at 11:30. It should continue until 2 PM.

If you can't attend our auction in person, please consider donating some items. We will gladly auction off any comics or collectibles that you might be willing to contribute to this wonderful cause, with 100% of the proceeds going directly into the Rainbow Alley Christmas Fund. We would also be delighted to pass on small holiday gifts, such as backpacks or hoodies, as I am sure that the Rainbow Alley staff could find them good homes. The goal here is to help these abandoned kids to find some holiday cheer, so any help that you might be able to provide would be most sincerely appreciated.

I will close by quickly mentioning that tomorrow is also the date of our monthly Texas Hold'em Poker Tournament. Buy-in is only $25, with 100% of all revenues received going to the Rainbow Alley Christmas Fund. Game starts at 11 AM, but I encourage everyone who hasn't pre-registered to arrive by 10:30. I believe in this cause so much that I personally donated $1,000.00 in Mile High Comics gift certificates as the tournament prizes...

Happy collecting!
