FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Superhero charity explodes in May with site launch, D-Backs game and Comicon
Phoenix, AZ– Arizona nonprofit group COMICARE stays extremely busy throughout the year visiting nearly every children’s medical facility in the valley. This May, the Comicare superheroes will find themselves extra busy. On top of celebrating the launch of their revamped website (www.comicare.org) they are joining the Arizona Diamondbacks for “Superhero Night” on Friday, May 22nd at Chase Field. Families will be able to meet and take pictures with their favorite comic book superheroes. The Diamondbacks organization is planning a variety of specials and activities.
Phoenix Comicon 2015 is right around the corner (May 28- 31) and COMICARE brings an exciting presence at their booth (#6017): games, prizes, giveaways and photo ops with top level superheroes like Iron Man, Captain America, Wonder Woman and Spider-man. COMICARE will also be accepting comic book donations that they pass on to children in valley hospitals.
“It is a big month for us,” explains Joe “ZEFF” Hyde, director of Comicare. “We have been working extremely hard visiting hospitals around the valley- and that is what we enjoy doing. It is sort of ‘icing on the cake’, to have three events like this where we get to mingle with the public and thank our community for their support.”
Comicare is an Arizona based 501(c)(3) nonprofit group that brings costumed ‘superheroes’ to children in hospitals. They deliver comic books to provide a happy distraction while encouraging a love of reading. They schedule as many as fifty visits a year in Arizona and neighboring states. Comicare is proud of their role as a conduit for the generosity of the comic book collecting community as the books they give away are all donated by enthusiasts. They not only visit medical facilities, but also support the philanthropic endeavors of those associated with the medical community.
We strive to brighten the day of hospitalized children by delivering comic books and visiting superheroes. We operate mostly in Arizona with occasional trips to neighboring states in the Southwestern U.S.
