Big donations made by generous G-fans
Attendance at this year’s G-FEST wasn't the only thing to come in kaiju sized proportions. Many G-fans showed their generosity by making contributions or participating in the raffle fundraisers for G-fans Helping G-fans. To top it off, an impromptu fundraiser auction was held just before the costume parade for a trunkload of Pacific Rim goodies. Kindly donated by Legendary Pictures, the Pacific Rim trunk was part of G-Pardy first-place winner Noah Crissey’s prize, which he generously gave up for the auction. The total amount collected was a staggering $5,810.00! Many thanks to everyone that participated at this year’s show!
