ICON, our parent company, sponsors many events other than LI-CON. This coming January 22 (Thursday), we’re holding a special benefit dinner. Our host will be John Rennie, who you may remember as a guest at the first LI-CON. John is a former editor-in-chief of Scientific American, as well as the host of several TV shows for the Weather Channel. He’ll be reviewing the year 2014 in science. Everyone gets a nice meal at Domenico’s restaurant in Levittown as well.
This is a benefit dinner, which will raise money for ICON Science Fiction, Inc. We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, meaning donations are tax-deductible. If you would like a charity receipt for your donation for tax purposes, just ask. Remember that any money raised goes directly back into throwing these events, or other charitable activities. We have no paid staff.

Of course, I, your LI-CON Chair, will be discussing the Year in Bad Science at Arisia in Boston, on January 18. (The event runs all of Martin Luther King Day weekend.) Arisia’s schedule is subject to change.
If you attend both, you win a special prize to be revealed later. Come and introduce yourself to me at both events. This offer does not apply to ICON volunteers and I’m not promising the prize is expensive.
I hope to see you at both events.
