It's all for a good cause!
The people of Orlando, Florida have been through a lot recently after the tragic shooting at Pulse nightclub almost two weeks ago that left 50 dead — but now they have a little more help recovering thanks to The Walking Dead and Arrow!
Well now the casts of both TWD and CW's premiere superhero show Arrow are lending a helping hand by taking part in Fan Fest orlando — a fan convention to help raise money for the victims. Not only that, but 100 percent of the profits are being donated to the One Orlando Fund!
The convention is still a few months out, but the stars they already have lined up include Arrow's Stephen Amell and David Ramsey, and TWD's Lauren Cohan, Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt, Alanna Masterson, Ross Marquand, Seth Gilliam, Sonequa Martin-Green, Christian Serratos, Emily Kinney, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., as well as executive producer Greg Nicotero. Talk about a lineup!
James Fazier, founder of Fan Fest, hopes to raise about $500,000 through the one-day event as hopefully more star guests join this great cause!
If you're interested in attending, Fan Fest Orlando takes place September 17 at the Orange County Convention Center, and you can get your tickets HERE!
