Big Day Tomorrow!

This is it!  The 6th Annual Out of this World Sci-Fi Festival and Free Comic Book Day is TOMORROW, MAY 3rd!

We invite one and all to come and join in the fun!  The Staffs of Star Base Columbus and Moore Comics have worked hard to make this year's event the BEST EVER.

There will be fun and activities for Sci-Fi and Comic Book fans of ALL AGES, from the very young to the young at heart.  In honor of Star Wars Day we will have  two sessions of Jedi Training Academy for ALL AGES.  There will be fun and educational Sci-Fi and Space Exhibits.   Some of the fan organizations attending will be selling chances to win cool prizes to benefit various charity organizations around Central Ohio.  There will be a costume contest and live musical entertainment!
Specific details of the event are listed in earlier posts on this site.

Admission and Parking are FREE but we are accepting monetary donations to support the Mid Ohio Food Bank.  We will be serving hot dogs, lemonade and snacks free of charge and selling hamburgers and pop at modest prices.

We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

A Dose of Reality

Yes, this is happening RIGHT HERE in CENTRAL OHIO!  It's something that we can no longer ignore.  Some of us may have friends and family members who are struggling in these uncertain economic times.  Some may have to choose between food and being able to pay their heat/electric bill or between buying food or their medications.  NOBODY should have to make those kinds of choices.
That's why institutions like the Mid-Ohio Food Bank exist.

 Since 1980, we’ve been working with grocers, food companies, Ohio farmers, the USDA, and community partners to obtain food and distribute it to more than 550 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, after-school programs, and senior housing sites across central and eastern Ohio.

Since 2009 Star Base Columbus and Moore Comics have been sponsoring events to support the efforts of the Mid-Ohio Food bank.  At last year's Science Fiction Festival we collected more than $350.00 in donations for the Food Bank.  We hope to exceed this amount at this year's event.  We ask everyone to come out and have a great time and support this worthy cause!  Need a bag to carry around all the cool stuff you got at the festival?  While supplies last Star Base will give a free Star Wars or Harry Potter shopping bag to anyone who makes a donation to the food bank.  There will be other cool things to choose from as well.
