My name is Desirea and I live in NJ. This past spring I started a small group called the Anime Picnic Group. Eventually though these small events I was holding started to become bigger and bigger. My most recent event I had close to 100 people attend! So as a final event for the year I have decided to put together a small anime convention for Halloween. I knew this would not be easy but so far it is coming along FANTASTICALLY! I have a few staff members and even some volunteers. I have rented out a small convention center and everything is coming together great so far! If you are interested in attending, here is the basic info for the event:
Name: ANIME HALLOWEEN BASH!
When: Sunday, October 24th 2010
Where: Dwyer Cultural Center, 258 St. Nicholas Avenue, New York NY, 10027
Price: Volunteer: $15.00 (Must volunteer for 3 hours at the event)

Also, there is going to be a Pre-Registration day this coming Saturday and Sunday (October 2nd and 3rd 2010) from 1pm to 6pm. I definitely encourage everyone who can Pre-Register early to definitely do so as there will be a large crowd and not everyone may be able to get in. Here is the information for the Pre-Registration Days:

Time: 1pm-6pm (Both Days)
Where: 572 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn NY, 11205
Price: Volunteer: $15.00 Attendee: $20.00
Directions: Take the "G" Train to Bedford & Nostrand, come upstairs and head down Lafayette Ave. until you hit 572 (If you see the numbers going up, turn around, if you see them going down, turn around)
