$100,000 raised and the books still available! That’s pretty impressive by any standards. That, and the news that New York Times bestselling artist J.H. Williams will be granting the proceeds raised by the anthology this Friday, September 21st to Lisa Fine Survivor, Co-Founder & President of the non-profit, Route91Strong.
The event will be held at Red Rock Resort & Spa, 11011 W Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89135.
Image Publisher, Eric Stephenson, reflects upon the book’s concept and the success its been in raising funds too:
When Jim first came to me about this project and his plans to support and give back to his community in Vegas, I knew Image had to do this. I think people everywhere have been looking for ways to reach out to the survivors, and a year later, I am thrilled to sign off on a check for over $100,000 that we look forward to seeing go toward rebuilding lives that were ripped apart on that tragic day.
Wendy and I are so thankful to Image Comics, and to everyone who donated their time and talents to this effort. And thank you to everyone who has purchased Where We Live, or will be soon. The book wouldn’t have been possible without everyone’s support and caring. You’ve all helped people.
J.H. and Wendy Williams along with survivors Lisa Fine and Christina Caria will be joined by special guests and survivors of the Vegas Shooting that occurred a year ago on October 1st.
