darkhorse.gifI mentioned a couple weeks ago about the big Dark Horse, eBay, and Auction Cause dinner with Joss Whedon that was being auctioned off for SDCC. Today, Dark Horse let Major Spoilers know the event was a huge success bringing in $61,716.

“I’m more or less overwhelmed. The generosity of the bidders—all of them—is greater than I could have expected. Equality Now needs this money for its vital work and I’m thrilled at the amount this event has raised,” said Joss Whedon in a prepared statement. “My grateful thanks to Dark Horse, to MySpace, eBay and Auction Cause—and mad props to the man behind the curtain, Mike Boretz—for making this run so smoothly. And to all the bidders, five of whom are in for a treat—or a least an appetizer.”

The money from the auction will go to the Equality Now charity. This group works with human rights organizations around thw rold to document violence and discrimination against women.

Congrats to the five winners of the auction, and even better, to Equality Now.
