C.L.E.V.E.R. Con is C.L.E.V.E.R.'s big yearly fundraiser that raises funds for the organization's programs, events, and community outreach. C.L.E.V.E.R. Con is a two day book convention held at the Charles Mack Center that includes over 6,000 square feet of artists, craftsman, authors, publishers, non profits, speakers, guest performances like dance academies, martial arts studios, and readings by authors. We will also have a literacy room where anyone of any age can come and read with one of our volunteers. Each day will also showcase our community Cosplayers who come dressed in their favorite book, movie, or comic character! Within the event we will hold daily raffles, have a silent auction, as well as soooo much more.
The funds from the event go to C.L.E.V.E.R., a 501C3 pending non-profit run solely by volunteers. It will fund all of our 2022 projects, including, our Youth LGBTQ+ and Ally Club, Literacy 4 All Initiatives, the introduction to our "professionals closet" where youth and ally can come to find formal wear and professional attire for college and job interviews. In 2022 we will also be releasing our writer's workshop series, both online and in person. The funds raised will allow us to offer these projects to the community for FREE.
