Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles Charity Screening at Mechacon 2006


Only North American Convention Screening Of Film In 2006

LAFAYETTE, LA - June 02, 2006 - With June 1st marking the start of Hurricane Season, those affected by 2005�s devastating hurricanes take a moment to look back at last year's hurricane season.

Hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck within one month of each other, sweeping across the Gulf Coast of Louisiana. The devastation caused by these two natural disasters dramatically altered entire communities as well as the lives of countless families and individuals. In the wakes of these tragedies, people around the world generously stepped forward in an outpouring of support for the recovery effort. Yet, after nearly one year, there is still much work left to be done.

In an effort to further assist in the re-building of lives and communities along the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, HARMONY GOLD has selected MechaCon to host a special Charity Screening of the full-length, feature film �ROBOTECH: The Shadow Chronicles.�

On the weekend of August 11-13, 2006, MechaCon will be the ONLY North American convention in 2006 to screen this long-anticipated sequel to the ROBOTECH series.

Tickets for this Saturday, August 12th charity screening of �ROBOTECH: The Shadow Chronicles� will be on sale at the MechaCon registration desk on a first-come-first-serve basis beginning on Friday, August 11th. Anyone attending this charity screening must be a registered MechaCon 2006 attendee. Non-MechaCon registrants will not be allowed to purchase tickets for this event.

Admission will be eight dollars ($8) USD for adults and four dollars ($4) USD for children 12 and under. Only one ticket per MechaCon 2006 registrant may be purchased. One hundred percent of ticket sales for this special Charity Screening will be donated to the Salvation Army for Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita restoration work.
