Event features voice actors, card game demonstrations, costume contest

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Metro New York and 4Kids Entertainment have announced details for the February 23 New York City premiere event for the 3D animated film Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time. Make-A-Wish of Metro NYC will bring five local "wish families" to the event, which will include demonstrations of Konami's Yu-Gi-Oh! trading card game, appearances by the anime's voice actors, a costume contest, and a raffle to benefit the non-profit organization.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Metro New York grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Past anime- and manga-related Make-A-Wish efforts include the 2005 auctioning of an autographed art piece by manga creation team CLAMP and a 2006 graphic novel created by a brain tumor patient and published by Tokyopop.

Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D: Bonds Beyond Time will screen at select theaters on February 26 and 27 and March 5 and 6.

Update: Corrected Make-A-Wish Foundation of Metro New York's name and role.
