Current and former stars of The Walking Dead will be appearing at a fan convention in Orlando to raise money for victims of the Pulse nightclub tragedy and their families. Fan Fest Orlando will take place Sept. 17 at the Orange County Convention Center, with 100 percent of the profits being donated to the One Orlando Fund.

Lauren Cohan, Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt, Alanna Masterson, Ross Marquand, Seth Gilliam, Sonequa Martin-Green, Christian Serratos, Emily Kinney, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., and executive producer Greg Nicotero from The Walking Dead have already been confirmed to attend, with more names to be added. Stars from other shows, such as Stephen Amell and David Ramsey from Arrow, will also be appearing.

Fan Fest founder James Frazier, who is an Orlando native, hopes to raise $500,000 at the one-day event. More information about the charity convention can be found right here. Or you can donate to the One Orlando Fund right here.
