Charity

***Penned Con and your support  has helped to raise just over $32,000 over the past 3 years.  This money is changing the lives of families living in the Metro St. Louis Area***

Penned Con 2017 has officially partnered once again with a St. Louis based organization , Action for Autism, which has been dedicated to improving the lives of autistic children and their families for several years.   They work hard to meet the growing needs of families and individuals within a 250 mile radius of St. Louis.  AFA is affiliated with The Howard Park Center as well as The American School, which serves children in middle and high school.

1 in every 88 children born today will be diagnosed with some form of autism.  AFA  seeks to provide awareness and education about autism and to help families get the resources to best suit their needs.

All event profits go towards the Penned Con Scholarship Fund to help families send their child to school and aid in providing financial support for therapies.

Thank you for helping us to make this dream become a reality.

Our 2017 goal is to hit $15,000.
