Tomorrow night is the 22nd annual Biz Bee fundraiser for the Literacy Council of Alaska, and the original pen & ink + color wash for the Nuggets panel (and also used as the design for that special benefit poster) will be one of the many items up for silent auction at the event. WOOF!
The Literacy Council of Alaska’s 22nd Annual Biz Bee is scheduled for February 20th – it will take place on a Thursday evening starting at 7pm in the Westmark’s Goldroom.
Sponsored by the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner it is the “signature community event” for this vital non-profit agency. Since the Biz Bee first started, it’s been the primary fund-raiser for the Literacy Council of Alaska: over $400k in donations to date have been raised through this single venue. Last year they had nearly 300 volunteers serve over a whopping 16,000 hours to help “change lives through literacy.“
Besides the main event, the spelling bee, there will be a silent auction as well, featuring many works of art – including the original panel (pen + ink/watercolor) for this cartoon.
