CAKE’s annual art auction fundraiser will be happening this Saturday, April 25th, at NO NATION, located at 1542 N. Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. The event will start at 7:00, and it will consist of a live auction of art donated by a number of comics luminaries, a silent auction, and live comics readings by talented cartoonists from Chicago and elsewhere.

If you’re still deciding whether to attend, we wanted to highlight some of the cartoonists that will be performing, the art that will be available to purchase in the auction, and the door prizes that will be awarded in a raffle.
