Tampa Bay, FL – September 14, 2017 – MegaCon™, the Southeast’s fan convention,
has announced Comic Book Legend Stan Lee will appear at MegaCon Tampa Bay to
meet his fans and support Hurricane Irma relief in Florida. For the next 2,000 MegaCon
Tampa Bay tickets sold online, the convention will donate $5 per ticket to Feeding Florida,
a statewide network of food banks working on the ground to provide families impacted by
Hurricane Irma with food and emergency supplies.

“The generous support of the MegaCon Tampa Bay community will allow Feeding Florida
to provide necessary supplies to our families directly impacted by Hurricane Irma,” said
Robin Safley, Executive Director of the Feeding Florida. “Partnerships like this allow our
statewide network of food banks to continue to support every community and provide
many of the front-line services required during response and recovery efforts.”
“Florida is in need of some cheering up and what better person to do that than the one
and only Stan Lee! We are excited to be bringing Stan to Tampa Bay for the first time and
to work with him to support those communities impacted by Hurricane Irma.” says Andrew
Moyes, Vice President of FanExpo HQ.

In light of the recent natural disaster, Stan Lee will auction off experiences and items that
money cannot buy, including a one-on-one meal with Stan The Man himself, and artwork
from his personal collection. The auction will happen on Friday, September 29 during his
panel at MegaCon Tampa Bay. You have to be in the room to bid!
Stan Lee’s personal auction contributions, combined with the funds raised from the ticket
drive, ensure MegaCon Tampa Bay and their fans will donate an estimated $20,000 to
Feeding Florida’s hurricane relief efforts.

Three-day passes as well as single day tickets starting at just $25 are available
at www.megacontampabay.com/tickets. For news, guest announcements and more,
