We are proud to announce that proceeds from this year’s Empire Con, will be going to the Peter Mayhew Foundation. Peter’s family has also chosen to have the official public memorial to him at our event (as announced on his social media on the day of his passing.) and we will have an exhibit set up with some scripts, images, film artifacts, and items from his personal collection. Finally, Empire Con will be facilitating a charity auction for the foundation with memorabilia, artwork, autographs, and more.
The Peter Mayhew Foundation has been and will continue to be Peter’s voice in the community. The Foundation has helped many individuals, families and other organizations over the years, smuggling supplies into Venezuela, supporting make-a-wish goals and augmenting their wishes, helping with housing during Hurricane Katrina, helping with children, children’s hospitals, finding transplants for kids, facilitating with families, recovery, and much more.
Peter’s memorial will be held Saturday afternoon and the auction will be held on Sunday. This year’s Empire Con LA, will be held at the Marriott LAX December 6th - 8th. We hope that you will join us for a very memorable experience.
