But yet somehow this time it’s different and new.  Join us for an amazing final event from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. when one of our Guilty Pleasures is helping others. Bid on one-of-a-kind dolls that will be auctioned off for charity. You get the bragging rights, the charity gets the proceeds. A win/win farewell.  Plus enjoy a presentation by Robert Tonner and highlights of the Convention Competition dolls.
