GuardianCon began humbly three years ago with Twitch streamers uniting to rais money for charity. This year, it is a full-blown event that has already raised $1.2M for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital ahead of the two day event to be held on June 30th through July 1st. This doubles the $560,000 raised only a year ago.
The event is held in Tampa, Florida at the Florida State Fairgrounds Expo Hall and includes tournaments, panels, meet & greet events, live music, artists' booths and more. Tickets run $30 for Friday or $50 for both days.
