Fan Fest Orlando 2016- A One Day Charity Event Benefiting One Orlando Fund with Actors Reporter host Deanna Jones
In June, 2016, the Orlando, Florida, area was rocked by a terrible mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub. A predominately LGBT club in the downtown area. A lone gunman opened fire inside the club killing 49 and injuring dozens more. This horrific tragedy that was meant to tear the city apart had an unexpected outcome amidst the bloodshed- it brought the Orlando community together.
Touched by this appalling event, the men and women behind Walker Stalker Con and Heroes and Villains Fan Fest wanted to do their part to help mend the Orlando community. They brought together celebrities, cosplayers, writers, vendors and more for a one-day Convention in which all proceeds from photo ops, autographs, and vendor sales go to the One Orlando Fund- A Charity that opened up in the wake of the Pulse shooting to assist the victims and their families of the attack.
