NOVA Charitable Foundation Raffles Happening Now

While we're not gathering together for conventions this year, that doesn't mean that they aren't happening. And something that NOVA always does is have their charity raffles. Those are going on now. Head over and put down some money to get tickets to win some amazing prizes and armies. It's gaming, which is good. It's getting amazing things, which is good. It's helping people, which is the best.

From the website:

Recognizing the immense generosity of worldwide tabletop wargamers, the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation was formed to bring this “Compassionate Force” together under a single banner with a broad outreach to support charities which address the needs of humanitarian emergency relief, children’s causes, military families, and medical research.

The NOVA Open Charitable Foundation, Inc. (NOCF), established in January 2013, was created to assist the tabletop wargaming community in raising funds for charitable causes. Miniature painters and artists have long been involved in producing miniature armies as a form of fundraising. Recognizing the immense generosity of the worldwide tabletop wargamers, the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation was formed to bring this “Compassionate Force” together under a single banner with a broad outreach to support charities which address the needs of humanitarian emergency relief, children’s causes, the military and medical research.

​The founders of the NOCF, understanding the value of associating its name with an internationally known entity in the community, approached the NOVA Open Tabletop Wargaming Convention‘s Executive Board for permission to incorporate its name in the Foundation’s title. They also sought permission for fundraising opportunities on site at the convention and to have the raffle drawings podcast internationally by the 11th Company during the NOVA Open’s final award ceremony. The NOVA Open Executive Board was more than happy to grant these permissions, noting that the roots of the NOVA Open began in a park as a fundraiser for breast cancer research.
