That's not all gang! This year, a very SPECIAL group will be making it's first appearance at the Horror Realm Con! Scares That Care is a non-profit organization that provides money, toys, and other items to help sick children. Representatives for this worthy cause will be selling merchandise and taking donations for the cause.

Led by horror film director and retired police officer Joe Ripple, this organization utilizes the fan base of the horror, haunt and Halloween genres to raise funds and awareness for sick children in need. Scares has a GREAT time holding benefits, by showing films, having silent auctions and maybe getting lucky enough to have a few celebrity appearances along the way.

To date, Scares That Care has raised a minimum of $10,000 for both the Johns Hopkins Children’s Cancer Center and The Kennedy-Krieger Institute! Now, The FIGHT Continues! For 2011 STC is raising money for the kids at the “Make-A-Wish” Foundation.

So get your ghoul on and nab your tickets today!!! The gang from Pittsburgh Underground will be hanging out with the rest of the undead to take in all the hairy-scary fun! We hope to see you there!
