The Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation has been named as the official beneficiary of Windsor ComiCon.

“As a celebration of comics, sci-­‐fi and all things pop culture in our community, we are pleased to name the Foundation as our beneficiary,” said ComiCon President & CEO Steve Menzie.

Taking place in the Colosseum at Caesars Windsor on Saturday, October 15th and Sunday, October 16th the two‐day event will feature a myriad of celebrities including but not limited to Jason Priestly (Beverly Hills, 90210) and Tia Carrere (Wayne’s World); autograph sessions and photo opportunities, cosplay contests for adults and for kids, shopping galore, comic artists, Celebrity Q&A sessions, panels, workshops, a kids zone and much more! Adult tickets start at $20, kids under 6 get in free with an adult (paid ticket).

“Guests will be invited to make a donation when purchasing a ticket at the gate while the Foundation will use the event as a promotional platform to engage the community about its services to build awareness,” said Menzie. A cheque will be presented to the Foundation at the conclusion of the event.

According to Ron Foster, VP, Public Affairs, Communications & Philanthropy and Executive Director, Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation “Windsor ComiCon will provide us with a unique opportunity to reach into new markets of people who will engage with the Foundation through their gifts of time and contribution of funds that will drive the mission and success or our programs such as Hats On For Healthcare.”
