Go Behind The Scenes and Volunteer

Perhaps you've attended Furnal Equinox for a few years now, seen all the big events, and you're eager to get a different perspective on the life of a convention.

Why not step behind the curtain, and look at what it takes to put on the show?

We are looking for responsible volunteers to help us out at the convention. We are always in need for volunteers, whether it's to set up or teardown a room, do a food run to make sure that our dealers are properly fed, or make sure that our fursuiters don't fall and hurt themselves. All of our volunteers receive buttons for their effort, and if you put in enough hours, you'll be eligible for rewards such as T-shirts and free memberships to next year's con.

If you're interested in helping out, send us an e-mail at volunteer@furnalequinox.com. We'll talk with you about your preferences. As we get closer to the convention, we'll work to develop a schedule that works for you.

Putting on FE takes a lot of work. If you don't believe us, go check out this video filmed at FE 2013...

So for all of you costumers and performance artists, whether amateur or professional, this is your showcase to share your skills and talents in front of a live audience!

The Masquerade is currently tentatively scheduled for Saturday evening. Again, participants are invited to apply online through the provided form. As with the dance competition, you must attend a dress rehearsal prior to the event. Questions about the masquerade can be directed to BT (btarmistice@gmail.com).

Remember the Animals in our Charity Auction

We are pleased to have a wonderful relationship with the Mississauga Humane Society. As attendees, you have raised over $18,000 for the MHS over the last four years, and we are very eager to add to that total this year!

For those that aren't aware, a few words on our charity: for fifteen years, the Mississauga Humane Society's goal and mandate has been to find "Forever Homes" for cats and dogs regardless of their background, age, health or previous behavioural issues. Unlike many other humane societies, they have no dedicated office or overhead. All animals are cared for by volunteer foster owners, and all of their donations go towards food, veterinary bills and other expenses.

We'll be running the Charity Auction throughout the convention in support of the MHS, culminating in the voice auction on Sunday afternoon. So please consider donating an item! We particularly like artwork and costume pieces and commissions, but any other special items are welcome too. You can e-mail us at charity@furnalequinox.com with details, and drop them off in the art show room on Friday.

If you have any other fundraising ideas that you'd like to run at the convention, please let us know at the same address! Just about anything is welcome as long as you run it by us first.

And for everyone else, please consider saving a few dollars for our charity auction on Sunday afternoon and bidding on an item or two. Would you say no to those cute faces?

More information about the MHS is available on their website at www.mississaugahumanesociety.com.
