Curtis is making a one-time-only appearance at the con in Indianapolis (November 16-18) as a fundraiser for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The HorrorHound Magazine Forums report:
Ms. Curtis will be appearing at the event on both Saturday (November 17) and Sunday (November 18) for autograph sessions, photo-ops, and an on-stage Q/A panel which is sure to be epic. This is a landmark opportunity for fans, as Jamie has never attended an event like this nor provided horror fans with the opportunity to have their memorabilia signed in such a capacity. And it’s all for charity, via the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. ALL monies earned from Jamie’s autograph sessions, photo-ops, and stage event will go directly to the Children’s Hospital.…
