Holiday Party / Art Show / Fundraiser / and Sale CNJ Comics
Here’s all the info on this years’ annual Holiday Party / Art Show / Sale / Fundraiser to benefit the Cleveland Food Bank!
Art and Fundraiser
On Saturday, December 21st from 10 am to 7 pm we’ll be hosting an art show featuring local artists who created custom covers to benefit the Cleveland Food Bank. These covers can be won in a basket raffle system where one food item or one dollar gets you a ticket. You pick which cover your ticket goes to so you can win a one you really like. This year’s art show theme is a comic book character / Christmas movie mashup, which we’ve been having a lot of fun with.
Here are some of the covers from previous years, all based on Uncle Eddie from Christmas Vacation:
And here are some of our fantastic artists:
We will shut down the store at 7 PM only to reopen at 8 PM for our annual Holiday Customer Appreciation Party! The party lasts till around 11 PM and features snacks, beverages, and the required holiday cheer. Winners of the basket raffle are drawn promptly at 10:30 PM. Winners need not be present but if you’re there you can take your artwork home with you.
All the money collected during the art show will go to the Cleveland Food Bank, who have the amazing ability to turn one dollar into four full meals for those in need during the holidays.
We will also be having a holiday sale from Saturday, December 21st to Tuesday, December 24th. (We thrive during this time period when it’s too late to successfully order stuff through online. We always have gift certificates!) This sale will absolutely be in effect during the art show.
This sale includes:
- 50% off all back issues (yes all, even the new collection we just bought. Hey, it’s Christmas right?)
- 20% off all graphic novels
- 20% off all action figures, statues and pop funs.
- 10% off everything else in the shop
All are welcome to our holiday party which, as previously stated, runs from 8 PM to 11 PM on Saturday, December 21st. Our first party gift to you is this coupon good for 50% off any one item in the shop! Please print this image out or show it to us on your smartphone when you check out.
Coupons MUST be used at the party between 8 PM to 11 PM period. (sorry, no exceptions.) Limit one coupon per person.
We have also brewed two beers just for the party, Thanos’s Ginger “Snap” Ale and Spidey’s Shitter’s Full Christmas Ale.
Labels are being designed by Craig Worrell and will be revealed soon!
These beers are free and go pretty quickly starting right at 8 PM. We’ll also have other beers as well as non-alcoholic refreshments. (For the record, our holiday party is and will always be an all-ages affair.) While refreshments are free, our bartender Macklin works solely on tips, so please do the right thing.
Chocolates will also be provided by Fear’s Confections in Lakewood, one of our favorite small businesses in the area. Thanks Cassandra!
Carol will be there, and hopefully Santa Claus will stop by too! Honestly after a few drinks, anything is possible. We always have photo op areas set up around the shop so be sure to wear your Christmas finest. Wearing stupid holiday clothes makes everything more fun. I know I’ve got my outfit ready. (From Lansky Brothers!)
This is our way of bringing all of our favorite people together to give something back to the community. Over the last six year’s we’ve been able to assist the Cleveland Food Bank in creating over 60,000 meals. All this is only possible with your help, which we are always grateful for. This party is our way of saying thank you for your support year-round! (and it’s a lot of fun to put together too!)
So spread the word Cleveland, and we’ll see you on December 21st!
