There is no doubt the 501st Legion can bring a positive note to any Sci-Fi convention and the Steel City Con is no exception. For years the crew at Garrison Carida have come out to show their support and assist wherever possible or needed. Their early support of Sandtroopers.com back in 2002 at the Wizard World Philly events, so they are no stranger to the cause of United We Find. We can't thank them enough for their dedication, work and support. 

Another Star Wars fan group that has to be acknowledged is the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society. Their annual Toy Drive was held at the Steel City Con and we've been told they had some fantastic results. Our sponsor Federation Toys and several other of the vendors stepped up to the plate and helped them work towards their goal. Daniel Logan was on hand to select some of the winners from the Toy Drive giveaway and you can bet were just thrilled to be presented a prize from Boba Fett himself! We applaud the work of Bill Cable and the entire membership. Their group has been a valuable asset to collectors for years. We look forward to the next Steel City Con as I've been told they are going to be at this location for the foreseeable future. Until the next show in April, United We Find!
