Charity Fundraisers at SoonerCon
Thanks to everyone that came out for SoonerCon 26 and helped us provide another record breaking donation to NAMI this year.
It’s a new year, and Positive Tomorrows is the sponsored charity for SoonerCon 27. Helping children is the theme for this year’s charitable giving, and there will be opportunities to support the charity throughout the weekend, including the charity auction, Cards Against Humanity and trivia tournaments, Nerf blasters, and more. NAMI OKC Metro will also be returning to continue sharing their message of hope for people with mental illness.
A combination of different fundraisers throughout the weekend of SoonerCon 26 helped raise $7,000 dollars that benefitted NAMI OKC Metro. An interview with Courtney Rogers-McInturff of NAMI can be seen here. Check out the video produced by NAMI about their experience at SoonerCon 25 here.
