FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
LAMBDA CHI ALPHA PARTNERSHIP POWERS GLEANERS FOOD DRIVE AT POPCON
Indianapolis, IN – May 13, 2014 – Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity has partnered with Indy PopCon, Indiana’s largest comic con, to create a food and awareness drive to combat hunger and homelessness and benefit Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. Last summer, Lambda Chi Alpha established a partnership with Feeding America and raised over 1.5 million pounds in food donations across its 200 college campuses in North America. This partnership with PopCon and Gleaners will help further Lambda Chi Alpha’s mission to end hunger.
On Saturday, May 31, PopCon will designate an area for Gleaners and Lambda Chi Alpha to collect both food and monetary donations in exchange for promotional wristbands featuring PopCon branding. With several varieties of wristband available, PopCon Communications Director, Shawn Smith, hopes to create an atmosphere of collecting and trading to encourage extra donations. “We have nine varieties available and each donation allows a fan to have a random wristband,” he said.
“The more you donate, the more opportunities you have to get the complete collection. You can also trade with fellow fans, and interact in unique ways to try to get them all,” he added.
In addition to standard wristbands, several exclusive bands will be available which, when discovered, will give the recipient access to hundreds of dollars in prizes donated by sponsors of the show. “We love the uniqueness of the concept and the fact it adds fun to our food drive,” said Sandy Meers, Associate Director of Information Systems. “We look forward to establishing a great partnership year after year and making the food drive a regular event for the convention.”

We did it again. We added another hall! But this time, it’s for a very different purpose. Here, see for yourself….
When last you heard, we added a hall to create more vendor and artist space. But nope, not this time. Instead, this hall has been purchased purely to improve the fan experience. Prior to this layout, we had registration, gaming, and the main stage all in the same hall. That probably would have worked OK, but we thought long and hard about the layout and thought about what would happen if we had 15,000 people show up on Saturday….
The answer was pretty clear. Our fans would have been stuck in line – miserable – singing the tales of our failures to the social media dieties to whom they subscribe. We could not allow that to happen, so we got a new Hall. We hope this means shorter lines (and clearer directions for long lines), more consistent crowd flow, better noise control, and more room to stretch out and make cement floor angels (note: do not make cement floor angels….).
Enjoy having even longer walks, now! Bwahahahaha!
