Additionally, several items — including original art and signed merchandise — have been donated for a silent auction. Due to demand, the silent auction has been moved off-site to a nearby Embassy Suites. According to store manager Jason Farnsworth on the event's Facebook page, "All proceeds from the event will go directly to the victims, their families and/or designated charity or foundation." On July 20, 12 people were killed and 58 injured during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises at a Century theater in Aurora. James Holmes, the sole suspect, is currently in custody.
