The SPJA Charity Auction, held during Anime Expo® over the 4th of July Weekend at the Anaheim Convention Center, is traditionally a well-received event that offers highly prized art pieces (many which are created specially for the convention and the Charity Auction), donated by the Convention’s very own special Guests of Honor (Special Industry Celebrities from Japan or the U.S. that have contributed greatly to the Anime and Manga Industry including voice actors, directors, animators, artists, etc.), many of which sell at prices reflecting the rarity and artistic form of the pieces. Some of the Guests of Honors attending Anime Expo® 2006 that will hopefully be providing items at the Charity Auction are world famous Manga artists CLAMP, Koge Donbo and Mick Takeuchi.

The Anime Expo®, in its 15th year, will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center July 1-4, 2006. The event, sponsored by SPJA, is a forum for enthusiasts and industry involved in Anime, Manga, Games and Culture of Japan. It is the largest convention of its kind in the U.S. for Japanese animation fans and industry professionals. The expo is expected to attract 55,000+ attendees from around the world.
