The creators of Walker Stalker Con and Heroes & Villains have come together to host a one-day charity event (Fan Fest Orlando) to raising money for the victims and families of the Pulse Nightclub attack.
‘Arrow’ star Stephen Amell put the call out to all his superhero friends to participate in the event.
Fan Fest will be held on September 17, 2016 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, and 100% of the profits raised from ticket sales, autographs, professional photo ops, and vendor sales will be donated to the One Orlando Fund.
“I grew up in Orlando, graduated from high school there, got married there, and had four of my children there,” said Frazier. “Last week, my heart was broken by a senseless tragedy. I wondered, what can we do? How can we help? This September, we’re inviting our community of fans to come help us raise as much money as we can for the families that were impacted.”
“From our actors and Celebrity Photo Ops, who are donating both their time and the proceeds of their work, as well as our volunteers and the Orange County Convention Center, everyone involved has stepped up to make Fan Fest Orlando possible. Our hometown needs us. We’ve always supported each other, regardless of race, orientation, or creed, and this makes that all the more clear,” said Jackie Prutsman, Orlando native and VP of Fan Fest.
