EyeCon Auction Header

Help a Great Cause and Meet Your Favorite True Blood Stars

EyeCon attendees now have the chance to experience a 45 minute autograph session with the True Blood stars. This event will be catered with finger foods and only 20 guests will be allowed to attend! Included with your attendance to this exclusive event is a private autograph signing, four free autograph tickets (a $100 value) and you can take your own cameras and items to be signed!!

The event will take place Saturday, November 6th and a portion of the proceeds from this auction will go to the Avon Foundation for the Treatment of Breast Cancer. The Avon Foundation’s mission is to find a cure for breast cancer and advance access to care. Their focus is on the disadvantaged, elderly, minorities and those without proper insurance.

All four True Blood stars will be in attendance at this event. Here is your opportunity to have some one on one time with Sam Trammell, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Joe Manganiello and Allan Hyde. Ask all those questions you’ve been dying to ask – although don’t expect any Season 4 spoilers. The cast is apparently as in the dark as the fans when it comes to what Alan Ball has planned for this year!

Click here to purchase some one on one time with the stars and help a great cause at the same time.
