The Guests of honor were Skulldog and D. Walker.[1]


The charity was the United States War Dogs Association. A total of $15,445.15 was raised.


Due to a fire alarm incident and the onset of Hurricane Sandy, some attendees began to facetiously refer to the convention as FireFright[2] and HurriCon.[3]

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.
