NOVA Open Foundation News
At 12:01am on October 1, 2016, the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation had its final drawing for 2016. The winner of the GW original painted studio miniature, Archaon – together with a hand-written letter from its creator, Duncan Rhodes and being delivered in its own Citadel ‘Ard Case – is:
JOEL MUNSON of WEST ROXBURY, MASSACHUSETTS, USA!
This model raised nearly $3,000 for Doctors Without Borders. Thanks to all who participated ~ and, especially, to Games Workshop & Duncan Rhodes for donating the model!
The NOCF will be making combined donations to DWB, BCRF and Fisher House – in the name of the Compassionate Force of Tabletop Wargamers Worldwide – in excess of $25K this year. How much in excess? The Archaon raffle will determine that!
Tickets are still on sale to win this amazing first-ever Games Workshop donated studio mini (go ahead and laugh, it’s over 13″ tall!) through 9/30/2016 at midnight. More after that raffle closes!! The season’s not over until some lucky tabletop wargaming wins this incredible model – there’s still time. GREAT ODDS: Only 2000 tickets will be sold. BUY TICKETS HERE.
There were still Archaon tickets left after the NOVA Open raffle closings on 9/4/16. The deal was simple, either sell all by that date or back on sale and a final drawing on SEPTEMBER 30, 2016!
The season’s not over until some lucky tabletop wargaming wins this incredible model – still time.
