    The Haven Foundation fundraiser 2015 and Grand Prize (Stephen King Inscribed Book)

    Each year, The Dark Tower forum raises funds to support The Haven Foundation by auctioning various collectible books and artwork, with 100% of the net proceeds going directly to this charity. Originally founded by Stephen King, The Haven Foundation is a national, non-profit organization making grants to freelance writers and artists experiencing career-threatening illness, accident, natural disaster or other emergency or personal catastrophe.

    The Dark Tower forum's annual Haven Foundation fundraiser, offers a unique opportunity to acquire new and value added Stephen King books and memorabilia. They have auctioned quite a few "Exclusive to the HF" items over the years, including the famed Glenn Chadbourne "Ultimate Rat" remarqued copy of Full Dark No Stars and many other unique items that have been exclusive to the Haven Fund. The artists that contribute will do work for the Haven Foundation they would not do ordinarily. Several book dealers and very high profile artists have already committed to donating some absolutely stellar items for this year's fundraiser!!!

    For everyone who has yet to experience this fundraiser, in addition to awesome auction items, there are generally prizes, contests and benefits for donating to the Haven Foundation. Suffice to say, in addition to helping the Haven Fund and all the good karma that doing so brings, there is always a lot of FUN to be had!!!

    This year, every person who donates $10 or more to the fundraiser, or donates an item used for auction or giveaway will receive one entry into a prize draw (a maximum 10 entries per donor) for a chance to win some amazing prizes. Items for this prize draw have yet to be finalized, but rest assured they will be really exciting and cool!


    Stephen King has kindly agreed to personalize one of his books
    to the Grand Prize winner!!!


    Last year's Grand Prize winner received an inscribed Gift Edition of The Shining:

    The Haven Foundation Fundraiser 2015 has now started!!!

    Sounds pretty damn cool, but I couldn't find the fundraiser itself on the site, just a forum post promoting it.

            Just an FYI the auction threads should be posted in the Book Market section. I move the ones you posted there awhile.

              Sorry about that. I wasn't sure where to post them, but I will make sure they go in Book Market section from now on.
