We’ve told you how we will be celebrating Sonic’s anniversary in style – now let us talk about how we are going to do things with some heart. During the convention, we will be running a raffle competition where some lucky fans will get their hands on some awesome prizes.
How would you like to get your hands on a range of Sonic X plush toys? How about a -massive- Sonic plush doll instead? Or perhaps you really rather fancy the original Archie x Fleetway art piece, amazingly drawn by Tracy Yardley and Nigel Dobbyn? Well, take part in our exciting raffle and you’ll have a chance of winning!
The best part? Proceeds from this raffle will go to charity. The world was rocked to its core just mere months ago on 11 March 2011, when a devastating earthquake and tsunami struck Japan. The Summer of Sonic organisers are passionate about supporting the efforts made by the nation and its fellow countries to provide relief for those still suffering months after the crisis began.
Strips of tickets will sell for Â£5, of which half will be donated to the Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal. The raffle winners will be announced during The Sonic Hour Live, presented by Svend and Rory Joscelyne. Tickets can be purchased in the Merchandise area of the main hall – look for Mark and his vast array of Sonic X and Classic Sonic plush toys!
