This year's attendance was 717, with 98 fursuiters in the daytime Fursuit parade (Furfright runs two fursuit parades). A total of $3,000.00 was raised for charity.[1]

Note: These financials provide just a brief overview, and should be considered in context. Each convention has its own situation, which may change from year to year. Special events (like art shows) that are part of a charity's mission are usually run at a loss. Conventions typically have many other expenses which may come to far more than those listed. Check the source for further details.
