On December 22, 2014 the house of Tom and Marnie Riddell caught fire and burned down. They lost their home, belongs, and Tom suffered serious burns as a result of this blaze. The two are active members of the local gaming community, cosplayers, con goers, and more. Marnie has also been named the first Ambassador of Cosplay at Tri-Con this year.
To help them out CharCon and friends are holding a game day to benefit them on Saturday February 7th at the Elk River church of Nazarene in Charleston. Things will start around 10am and go all day along.
They will have a variety of board games to play, Pathfinder sessions, Sparks Star Wars RPG, and more. Plus a game auction, door prizes, and concessions will be available.
There is no admission fee but they are taking donations. They are also taking games or game related items for use in the auction or as door prizes and donations for concessions, anything but baked goods. There is also a gofundme page for them to donate at as well. All the money goes to help the Riddell family.
Let the organizers know if you are going on the Facebook Event page, so they can figure out how much they need for concessions.
