An almost eerie quiet has descended on downtown Atlanta, Georgia. Dragon Con 2015 is now history, and it was one for the books! Dragon Con today released its attendance total: just over 70,000! That number is up from last year’s count of 63,000.
Each year, Dragon Con chooses a charity to support with fundraising efforts during the con. This year’s charity is the Lymphoma Research Foundation. The preliminary total raised so far is $100,000, but Dragon Con organizers expect that number to continue to rise as later donations are included.
A blood drive was also conducted throughout the con. A report of those totals will be forthcoming.
