Save the dates! TFcon Toronto – The world’s largest fan-run Transformers convention will take place July 14th to 16th, 2017. TFcon Toronto will return to the Hilton Mississauga/Meadowvale hotel in 2017. Discounted hotel block information and dealer bookings will be available in the near future. We hope you can join us for what is going to be another amazing event.
TFcon is very proud to announce that our 2016 charity auction was able to raise $12,826 for Make-A-Wish® Canada. We are very proud of everyone in our community that contributed to make this amazing feat happen.
Make-A-Wish® Canada creates magical moments for children between the ages of 3 and 17, living with life threatening medical conditions, through granting a child’s one true wish. Make-A-Wish® strives to create hope, strength and joy by giving a child a much needed respite from being sick, allowing them to experience the wholesome enjoyment of just being a “kid” again.
Because the entire family experiences the diagnoses, treatment and day-to-day challenges of caring for a child with an illness, the entire family is included in the wish experience. Make-A-Wish® likes to make sure their families do not have to lift a finger or spend a dime. So if you think of the cost of sending a family of 4 to Disney for a week from the car that picks them up to park activities, souvenirs as well as food and medical insurance the average cost of a wish is $10,000. So that means, because of the TFcon Toronto 2016 charity auction a child will have their wish come true!
TFcon is happy to welcome back Transformers toy designer and artist Marvin Mariano to the 2016 convention in Toronto.
