Since Heroes’ Beacon opened we have been involved with fundraising for good causes like the IWK with their Extra Life program. We firmly believe in giving back to the community that gave to us and made our shop possible.
With Extra Life done for another year we are going to focus on fundraising for something a lot closer to home. Our dear friend and customer Pete Darling has been diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease and will soon need a kidney transplant. While medicare and insurance covers many costs there are just as many that are left uncovered. To help with the cost of medications, missed work, and recovery we will be focusing all of our fundraising efforts towards helping to cover these costs.

Our weekly “Who would win in a fight?” donation boxes will be going towards this cause. We are also taking donations in store if that is more convenient. In the coming weeks we will be auctioning off various items so keep an eye for those as we have had some pretty cool stuff donated already. If you are interested in donating something please let us know.
Finally, we are selling raffle tickets for a 1/6 scale Hot Toys Wolverine! It retails for well over $200. Tickets are $5 each, 3 for $12 and 5 for $20! Draw date is December 31st and all proceeds will be going to A Kidney, for Pete’s Sake. Stop in and check out this beautiful collectors figure!
