Each show will have silent auctions.

Current artist contributors include: Skinner, Junko Mizuno, Robert Bowen, Decoder Ring Design, Marq Spusta, Mishka Westell, Bobby Dixon, John Howard, Jared Connor, Adam Pobiak, Gary Houston, Viral Graphics, Gregg Gordon, Stainboy, and more.

In addition, Marq Spusta will be creating a benefit poster.
