Inaugural Stockton-Con successful

Earlier today Stockton-Con tweeted numbers for the inaugural event celebrating comic books, science fiction, gaming and pop culture held Sunday in the Spanos Center at University of the Pacific. And by any measure it would be called a success. Attendance: 4,000. Amount raised for St. Mary’s Dining Room: More than $10,000. Clothing donated: More than 1,800 pounds, which will also be donated to St. Mary’s Dining Room.

And to think that event organizer Mike Millerick, the sports information director at University of the Pacific, was hoping 500 would attend. I bet many people are already looking forward to next year.
