AEROLITE METEORITES 2013 GEM SHOW CHARITY RAFFLE
BENEFITTING HOPE ANIMAL SHELTER OF TUCSON, AND CHALLENGER SPACE CENTER ARIZONA
Aerolite Meteorites is pleased to announce the 2013 Tucson gem and mineral shows charity raffle. 100% of all ticket sales (less any PayPal/credit card fees) will go directly to two of our favorite non-profits; HOPE Animal Shelter, Tucson's only non-kill animal shelter, and Challenger Space Center Arizona.

HOPE has been a favorite charity of Geoff's for years, as they work tirelessly to find good homes for injured and abandoned animals. HOPE recently rescued an astounding 60 healthy cats, that were scheduled to be euthanized, from animal control. Aerolite makes regular contributions to the shelter's operating costs.

Challenger Space Center Arizona employees and volunteers work diligently to educate the public — especially young people — about the space program, astronomy, and general science. Geoff has worked closely with them over the past few years, including fundraising events, the donation of meteorites for a permanent display and, most recently, he designed and curated They Came From Outer Space which will run for an entire year, featuring over one hundred meteorites as well as equipment, wardrobe, and props used during the filming of Meteorite Men.

100 % of proceeds from the charity raffle will be divided evenly between
HOPE Animal Shelter and Challenger Space Center Arizona
