During Power Con Weekend: The Friends of the Power and the Honor Foundation Reception!
More power coming your way this September.
The Power and the Honor Foundation, an awesome non-profit dedicated to collecting, archiving, preserving and educating the public on the creative origins of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe as well as She-Ra, will be in Torrance on Power Con weekend to host a Friends of The Power and Honor Foundation Reception.
Unfortunately, the foundation was asked not to exhibit at Power Con this year, for reasons I do not know. I don’t want to dwell on the negative, but instead focus on the positive of the reception being planned. I had the honor of meeting a few of the guys from the foundation last year, and they were amazing guys. They love the He-Man and She-Ra franchises, and the non profit they have is proof of it. The sold out catalog they had last year is a complete work of art, showcasing some rare, behind the scene concept sketches and more. If you are going to Power Con, I HIGHLY recommend you dropping by this reception! Here is some info direct from their website, but make sure to visit them online HERE for more info:
Friends, Food & Art
We regretfully announce that The Power and The Honor Foundation will not be attending this year’s Power-Con/ThunderCon convention. We had an amazing time last year, were able to share some incredible artwork, and more importantly, were able to meet and talk to other fans.
Unfortunately, we have been informed by the promoter of Power-Con that The Power and The Honor Foundation cannot be an exhibitor at this year’s convention. The Foundation would still like to thank everyone for their support and contributions during our first year, and would still very much like to interact and share with other He-Man and She-Ra fans.
Therefore, we are pleased to announce the first annual Friends of The Power and The Honor Foundation Reception. The reception will be held on Saturday September 22, 2012 starting at 5:30pm in the Jasmines Room at the Torrance Marriott South Bay, 3635 Fashion Way, Torrance, California 90503. We have the room until 1:00am so be prepared to relax, eat, and enjoy some time with friends.
As many of last year’s Power-Con attendees chose to either eat at the hotel’s bar or venture outside the hotel for dinner, we thought it would be nice to have a friendly on-site reception that allowed people to remain at the event hotel.
The Foundation will be giving FREE space to collectors to display art, toys, and merchandise in the room. Expect some great He-Man AND She-Ra artwork showcased for your enjoyment, including art from the personal collections of Mark Taylor, Josh Van Pelt, Emiliano Santalucia, James Eatock, James Sawyer, Mike Zolotrow and Lee Clevenger. Contact us if you have something in your collection that you would like to display!
For your $35 donation you will gain access to this private event and receive an assortment of finger foods as well as refreshments. The tentative menu includes chicken fingers, flatbread pizza, buffalo wings, and sandwiches & wraps. The room only holds 80 guests so be sure to secure your spot today!
