The 6th Annual Scares That Care Charity Weekend returned to Williamsburg, Virginia this past weekend, Aug. 2-4, with possibly the most heartfelt convention we’ve ever attended, as genre icons, talented vendors, and thousands of fans and cosplayers gathered, all to benefit a truly great cause.
Scares That Care is an all volunteer charity, where net proceeds from all organization events are provided to the recipients selected. Founded in 2006, “Scares That Care!” to date has raised and donated over $250,000 to organizations that treat sick children and families with a child affected by illness, burns, or women fighting breast cancer.
Celebrity guests at the 2019 Scares That Care Weekend included Sid Haig (House of 1,000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, 3 From Hell, Halloween 2007), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th VII-X, Hatchet), Sarah Butler (I Spit on Your Grave), composer Henry Manfredini (Friday the 13th), and Lia Beldam (The Shining), Jibrail Nantambu (Halloween 2018), Joe Bob Briggs (The Last Drive In) and his Last Drive In co-host Darcy the Mail Girl (aka Diana Prince), cast members of The Monster Squad and The Thing, among many others.
