A little history about the Tulare Sci-Fi Con?
The Tulare Sci-Fi Con was created in January 2014.  The Tulare Library Foundation approached "The Twin Suns: Star Wars Club" in an effort to help raise funds for the Tulare Library Children's Section.  The original request was for our group to make an appearance at the library event to help raise funds.  The event was then moved to  the Tulare International Agri-Center.  We found ourselves in the position of organizing the entire event.  For a brief moment we considered a children's fair, but quickly I realized it was not cost effective.  I (Derek) had the idea of holding a convention.  The vendors would be the decor and it would not cost a fortune to organize.  After all, the idea is to raise funds for the children's section of the library.   Myself and a few friends then formed the "Tulare Sci-Fi Con" board of directors to explore hosting a convention with all proceeds going to the library.  With the support of the Tulare Library Foundation, the board for the Tulare Sci-Fi Con went right to work preparing for the first convention in the Tulare area and as of the event date, the largest in the Central Valley.

As of November 13, 2014, the Tulare Sci-Fi Con is now associated with and operating under the 501(3c) of "Make The World A Better Place Foundation" (EIN Tax ID# 47-1968320).  Proceeds from the 2015 show to benefit Social Services programs for Homeless Children.
