River City Comic Con has once again partnered with the wonderful people at the Washington County Special Olympics to donate a portion of this year’s ticket sales.  Special Olympians and their families will receive free entry to the show, and fifty cents of every paid admission will be going directly to help fund local teams of athletes.  And be sure to stop by their table and pick up some homemade goodies from their bake sale!  For more information on the great work they do or how you can donate or volunteer, visit the state-wide page at or our Marietta area contacts at
