In The News-Indiana Anime Convention Raises Money for a Good Cause

Ramencon 2011, held August 19-21 in Merrillville, Indiana, raised $1,160 for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The convention, which attracted fans from northwest Indiana and as far away as Texas and California, was a celebration of Japanese animation or Anime.

The three-day convention featured numerous events and fundraisers, including games, musical performances, a silent auction, and a fashion show, as well as appearances by notable speakers and merchandise offered by vendors. Anime fans and fundraising staff alike were pleased with the outcome. 

Anime Crossroads, the next major convention scheduled for Indiana, will take place in Indianapolis, December 16-18, 2011.
