In February 2017, Salt Lake Comic Con named the Humane Society of Utah its official charity for 2017. The Humane Society of Utah welcomes every animal that they can legally accept and is dedicated to the elimination of pain, fear, and suffering in all animals. Since 1960, the Humane Society of Utah has been sheltering abandoned animals, fighting cruelty and neglect, and creating an environment of respect, responsibility, and compassion for all animals across the state of Utah. The Humane Society of Utah is an open-admissions “no-kill” shelter that will save the lives of over 11,000 animals this year alone.
Salt Lake Gaming Con 2017 will feature a number of game playing activities for attendees, including video games, board games, e-sports and gaming tournaments, and competitions. Gaming competitions include Injustice 2, Warhammer 40K, War Machine & Hordes and Overwatch Tournaments to name a few.
In addition to game playing, fans can also interact with gaming celebrities such as Ed Fries, Jennifer Hale, Steve Blum, Anjali Bhimani, Josh Petersdorf and Feodor Chin. This year’s event will also feature a number of new activities for the entire family such as a Mystery Escape Room, WizKids, USS White Buffalo, Dart Gun Zone, Live-Action “Super Kart Racing,” a Board Game Library and a Cosplay Contest.
“We always want to be involved in our community and support causes that do good work and mean a lot to our fans and partners,” said Dan Farr, Salt Lake Comic Con Founder and Show Producer (…)
