Salt Lake Comic Con 2017
Join creators from across fantasy and science fiction at Salt Lake Comic Con 2017 for an afternoon of gaming and partying to benefit Worldbuilders, a nonprofit that helps raise funds to combat poverty in developing countries. Play games with authors, game designers, and special guests.
WHEN: Friday, September 22 | 4 PM – 8 PM
WHERE: Salt Palace Convention Center, Room #355
Worldbuilders is a charity founded by author Pat Rothfuss in order to use the collective power of readers, fellow authors, and book lovers to make the world a better place. We raise money for other charities who we believe do the best work in their field: Heifer International, Mercy Corps, and First Book. These charities’ missions and values are exactly what we have in mind when we think, “Where can this money do the most good?”
Heifer plays the long game, bringing education, materials, and a passing-the-gift philosophy that ensures generations of self-sufficiency down the road. Mercy Corps jumps into action as crises arise, bringing food, clothing, shelter, and education to people caught in dire situations like natural disasters and war. First Book promotes literacy around the world by providing books for educators and administrators, bringing much-needed educational materials to disadvantaged youth.
