Kitacon 3.5 2011
|Start Date||Friday 23rd September 2011|
|End Date||Friday 23rd September 2011|
|Some of you may have heard rumblings, or picked up on the hints on twitter, that you may not have to wait until next April for your next dose of Kita-ey goodness. Now tha we've crossed the eyes and sugared the teas, we can announce that we're burning away some of those kita-comedown blues with a little of what you fancy.|
With the help of our friends at Manga Entertainment, Optimum and Ukai Sushi, we are holding a Gala Charity event in central London on the evening of Friday Sept. 23.
We are operating a 'donate at the door' policy, rather than tickets, and hope to get a great mix of new faces and seasoned Kitacon veterans. It's a wonderful chance to show your friends a glimpse of that special Kitacon magic, or just to have fun whilst doing something tohelp the general good.
With a free glass of something bubbly for all comers, a special screening of Manga Entertainment's forthcoming release "2001 nights" and chilled sets by our resident DJs, we're going for classy, but pretty sure we're going to miss by a longshot! Tuxedos and LBDs are as welcome as cosplay, and your effort will be well appreciated.
The big reason for this extra party, is to fulfill some of our fundraising responsibilities. Back in April, the Kitacon comittee had to face some hard decisions regarding their chosen charity. We had lost an inspirational author, Japan was facing an onslaught of disasters, we are still hearing from those we've helped in WenChuan and ChengDu after the Sichuan earthquake of 2008, and soon after our convention, we lost another amazing actress, who helped shape the lives and loves of many of us.
To this end, The incredible charity auction, door donations, and any other money raised, is to be divided between the Red Cross, in recognition of their work in Japan and China, The St. Peter's Hospice, in thanks for the support offered to 'Howl's Moving Castle' author Diana Wynn Jones, and the Meadow House Hospice, for their support of Elizabeth Sladen, better known to us all as the the archetypal Dr. Who heroine, Sarah Jane Smith
