This year, Camillus Con is donating all its profits to ACR Health, a non-profit organization that provides support services to individuals with chronic disease and serious mental illnesses with the goal of positive outcomes. They are proud to be partnering with this organization to give back to the community.

They are also bringing great guests such as Michael Garland, a freelance comic book artist who has worked on “RoboCop” and “Big Trouble in Little China”. They will have several local vendors selling everything from cute handmade creations to beautiful illustrated artwork.
