Event: NorCal Cosies Brought The Red Carpet Spotlight To The Northern California G33K Community

     The first ever NorCal Cosies have come and gone, but not first without lots of fun and great people. The event was a brillaint way to bring the red carpet to geeks in Northern California. The Cosies brought a fun free mini-con with everything you could want from a convention, and a wonderful awards ceremony to honor not only cosplayers but the photographers and more. The event also helped the local community by raising  right around $1425.00 for Haven’s Women Center of Stanislaus Co.

Modesto-Con’s Cosie Weekend at the Westside Theatre January 9th was a great success raising $1425.00 for Haven’s Women Center of Stanislaus Co.

Modesto-Con brought to the Westside Theatre in Newman, CA, the first ever Awards show of it’s kind, the NorCal Cosies, along with a Mini Con(Cosie Con) during the day that had nearly 650 people in attendance over the 5 hours.

The NorCal Cosies kicked off at 6pm sharp, with 10 categories with 3 contestants with a capacity crowd who were also the judges. The only trouble anyone had was in choosing who the winners would be.

Carrie Shea and Nick Silva kept the night flowing and the crowd entertained, along with special dance performances by Spotlight Dance Company.

See you all July 9th and 10th at the Modesto Centre Plaza, for Modesto Con.
