Magic Wheelchair Charity Build

Hauntcon 2020 LIVE BUILD AND SILENT AUCTION BENEFITTING MAGIC WHEELCHAIR

For the third year in a row, HAuNTcon will be teaming up with Davis Graveyard as they do a live build on the show floor. Once the build is complete on Saturday, January 18th, all haunters and attendees are invited to participate in our silent auction of the piece to bring back to their haunt. All proceeds of the silent auction will go to Magic Wheelchair - a non-profit organization that builds epic costumes for kiddos in wheelchairs - at no cost to families. Their vision is to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair. 

The 2020 HAuNTcon Live Build and Auction to benefit Magic Wheelchair will take on a classic New Orleans Theme. Join the talented Davis Graveyard Crew as they create from start to finish a Mausoleum that uses intricate foam carving and texturing techniques – live on the show floor. Check back to see the schedule of the build so you can stop by and see the work live and ask questions to the Crew!

This piece can be yours to bring to your HAUNT through our live auction with all proceeds benefiting Magic Wheelchair. Bidding will begin at $500. The auction will be open throughout the show, and the winner will be announced at 2:00pm on Sunday, January 19th. The winner will need to arrange to take the piece from the show to their location. Check back for more details on exact size/specs and recommended transport options!

More About Magic Wheelchair

Ryan and Lana Weimer, the founders of Magic Wheelchair, have five children, three of whom were born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which requires the use of wheelchairs for the entirety of their lives. Each Halloween, Ryan made the biggest, “baddest” costumes he could for his sons, Keaton and Bryce. Once the news of these costumes spread, Ryan began receiving requests from parents around the world asking if he would transform their kid’s wheelchairs into “magic”. In 2015, Ryan and Lana decided to make that happen and start Magic Wheelchair.
