Every Labor Day weekend, Downtown Atlanta is overtaken by superheroes, elves and stormtroopers as Dragon Con celebrates the colorful, myriad facets of popular culture.
Dragon Con is also philanthropic, with a fund at the Community Foundation generated by proceeds from the event. Each year, it asks attendees to help give back by raising funds for a specific local Atlanta nonprofit, which Dragon Con then matches. As a result, Special Olympics Georgia received $109,254.30 in 2017.
“Dragon Con is so much more than one person. It’s everyone that comes, has fun, contributes and gives. Atlanta has been good to us – it’s important to give back.” – Sherry Henry, Vice President, Dragon Con
