What are you doing with the net proceeds?
All net proceeds for the 2017 Diecast Hall of Fame will be donated to There With Care, a charity that helps support families who have children with a critical illness. You can read our official announcement here.
Will travel, ticket price, or hotel room be covered by the Diecast Hall of Fame for past and present inductees?
Due to the fact that all net proceeds will be going to charity, we’ve decided that all expenses related to attending the evenings induction ceremony will be solely up to the individual attending; no flights, hotels or other expenses to be covered or reimbursed by the DHOF. We want to ensure we maximize the good we can do for our selected charity There with Care.
The organization will award 2 event tickets to each of the management staff employees and the selection committee members. A discounted ticket rate will be available for past inducted member of the DHOF as well.
