TwiCon 2009: Changes in Celeb Attendance and Blood Donations?

"As the TwiCon 2009 film festival draws near, it is important that we keep up with announcements for that event as well.

There are a couple of new items that may be of interest to you all.

Firstly, it has been announced that The Twilight Saga: New Moon star Ashley Greene has pulled out of the event and will be replaced by wolfpack counterpart actor Alex Meraz at the event.

According to the TwiCon website, the "decision wasn’t an easy one for her, but she was offered an incredible photo opportunity for a national fitness magazine during our con." "While we are disappointed to see Ashley go, we are thrilled to be the first full convention in the country to host Alex Meraz. TwiCon is the first full convention to host ANY new up and coming actors from New Moon!"

What does that mean for attendants? Very little in the way of scheduling will change, but you will have options. Check out TwiFans for the details here or just check out the TwiCon webpage.

Also in TwiCon news is the fact that they have added a charity event to their on-going events calendar.

According to TwiCon's website,

TwiCon 2009 is pleased to support a shockingly appropriate charity event as part of our program -- an American Red Cross Blood Drive! From 9 am to 3 pm on Friday, August 31, you can sign up to donate much-needed blood. And to encourage you to support this great cause, TwiCon 2009 is provided two prizes -- a pair of front row tickets to our Q and A event with the actors from Twilight, and a coveted Meet and Greet ticket for the Saturday evening event! All donors will be entered in to a raffle for these prizes, and will be selected following the close of the drive on Friday afternoon! For only 20 minutes of your time you could have the experience of a lifetime! Snacks and refreshments will be provided post-donation. Donors must be 17 years of age or older. If you would like to sign up ahead of time, you can do so at our American Red Cross page here!"
