Lucca Comics & Games invites artists from all over the world every year. During the festival these artists create great masterpieces which are then auctioned on the last day of the event.
The Onlus Area Performance association, which for years has collaborated with Lucca Comics & Games in the management of the charity auction, delivers the proceeds of the charity initiative to the Pediatric Department of the Hospital of Lucca.
This year the famous publisher of the game and toy Hasbro has joined this solidarity initiative, donating numerous games (from “Monopoly” to “L’Allegro Chirugo” to “Trasformers”) suitable for young and very young patients in the ward Pediatric.
The proceeds from the auction held at the Lucca Comics & Games 2011 edition were extremely surprising, reaching a record € 17,790.
Part of these proceeds, as in recent years, will be used for the creation of a comic strip which, with the language of young patients, deals with very useful issues related to the prevention of diseases and correct lifestyles. The register will be created thanks to the collaboration between the Pediatric Department and the International School of Comics, and will make use of professional authors.
