Dear KeikenCon Friends,
Over the last year, our fantastic team of student leaders and faculty advisors have worked tirelessly to create an inspirational and unforgettable anime convention here at Rowan University. We have organized an incredible array of panelists, events, and performers, and as a result, we were expecting a huge crowd of enthusiastic and creative anime friends traveling from far and wide to KeikenCon. Unfortunately, due to the recent appearance of the coronavirus (Covid-19) on the east coast, we have decided to get ahead of the situation and temporarily postpone KeikenCon 2020. As a student-run organization (the Rowan University Anime Club), we have independently made this decision due to our personal concerns over community spread of the coronavirus, that our event is a fundraiser for families dealing with childhood cancer, and that we love and care very deeply for all of you – our anime friends, family, and supporters. We have a lot of folks who purchased tickets online or made donations to the Emmanuel Children’s Cancer Foundation, so it will take us a couple days to process all the refunds.
Our celebration of everything anime must go on, and we are happy to let you know that we have already started the planning to reschedule KeikenCon 2020 sometime in September. So, over the next few months, gather up your creative spirits and create something wonderful, stay tuned and connected to our social media, and we will see you in September. If you have questions or concerns, or just want to reach out to say HELLO, please don’t hesitate to message us on Facebook.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LOVE AND SUPPORT!
