PRLog - Aug. 27, 2012 - Mingling with TV and movie celebrities is a perk of Con X 2012 that will have charitable results. Fans that attend festivities throughout the weekend of September 14-16 will also help an important charity: the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). Proceeds from the Friday night cocktail party and concert, the Mardi Gras Party on Saturday, as well as all raffles held throughout the weekend will go to WWP.

Con X is Kansas City’s first and only pop-culture, horror and sci-fi convention running September 14-16, 2012. Con X takes place at the Ramada Conference Center and boasts film icons, TV stars, filmmakers, artists, authors and musicians who have not only entertained us over the years, but have served our country and earned Olympic Gold Medals. Walter “Chekov” Koenig (“Star Trek”), Denise Crosby (“Pet Sematary,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation”) and James Tolkan (“Back to the Future,” “Top Gun”) headline the event. There are cast reunions for “Paranormal Activity,” “Stargate SG-1” and “Amityville Horror” as well as a photo op with the “Back to the Future” Delorean and James Tolkan, aka Principal Strickland, from the film (full list of celebrities here).
