We want to thank everyone for an amazing convention! Midwest FurFest 2012 is over, and we hope that you had as much fun attending it as we did making it happen.
3,216 furry folks joined us over the course of the weekend, officially making Midwest FurFest the second-largest furry convention in the world (for now, anyway)! We would like to extend special thanks to our 196 Sponsors and 61 Shiny Sponsors whose generous support continues to make Midwest FurFest possible.
We were glad to make this an incredible year for our charity, Felines & Canines, Inc. They received a total of $8,500 including cash and checks in their donation jars (including $1,000 from a single donor!), the Charity Auction, and 2 & Kage's Saturday Performance. An additional $1,950 was raised by the Charity Auction and Charity Poker Tournament. To this, Midwest FurFest was pleased to add an additional donation of $30,000, meaning that Felines & Canines took home a little over $40,500!
This is also notable because, with this donation, the sum of donations to charities by all furry conventions since 1997 has exceeded ONE MILLION DOLLARS!
