In keeping with the spirit of the Jem cartoon series, JemCon is continuing its tradition of hosting a charity auction for a local facility in need. This year, we are pleased to announce that we are partnering with Philadelphia's Attic Youth Center, an independent LGBTQ youth center that "creates opportunities for LGBTQ youth to develop into healthy, independent, civic-minded adults within a safe and supportive community." Visit their website for more info on this great organization: www.atticyouthcenter.org. Proceeds from the charity auction will be donated to The Attic to help save their kitchen! Remember, YOU can help by bringing your auction donations to JemCon and/or bidding against fellow fans to win the outrageous items up for grabs!
It's outrageously official! JemCon will be "Up 'n Rockin'" in Upstate New York in fall of 2016!
