Thanks Cindy for writing this up :-)

In an effort to further the reasearch for Children stricken with cancer the April Roswell gathering will be donating proceeds from ticket sales, raffles and auctions to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

::The Pediatric Cancer Foundation ::

Pediatric Cancer Foundation, formerly known as the Maxwell-Leeds Pediatric Tumor Foundation until 1979, was founded in 1970 by grateful parents whose son underwent surgery and treatment at Babies Hospital, New York Presbyterian Medical Center. With the help of neighbors and family members, $5,000 was raised for the hospital's surgical and oncology departments.

Today PCF has grown to include support for children and their families afflicted with all types of cancer. Three decades of support has enabled the foundation to purchase state-of-the-art equipment, support research projects and bring exceptional fellows to both the surgical and oncology departments.

The many hours spent by their caring membership (which consists of over 200 volunteers) enables them to raise significant funds when hospital financial problems threaten to impede further progress.

As a Roswell fan I have seen what we can do. I have seen us save a show that was going to be cancelled. I have seen us rally for higher ratings for this season. Now we must rally to help fight against childhood cancer!

Well, the first Roswell Philly Party is over! It was an absolute blast! Roswell executive producer, Kevin Kelly Brown, was in New York visiting family and was able to attend the party. The guests absolutely loved him - he was really, really fascinating and we were lucky to have him in attendance.

Nick Wechsler and Bill Sadler were wonderful, as well! Everyone loved hearing their responses in the q&a session that was held over a speaker phone. Both of them have such a great sense of humor!

Thank you to everyone who bought a video! The video sale was a huge success. In total, we raised $3,100 for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation!

The day started out with the Daily Variety Ad for Jason from his fans, organized and designed by MrynaLynne, Sarah, Janet and SilverRain (Great job guys! It looked wonderful, and we all know Jason appreciated it!). Leftover donations for the ad are to be donated to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

Roswell Cast Reunion at the Austin Television Festival 2014

Roswell Reunion
There will be a Roswell Cast Reunion at this year's Austin Television Festival, June 8th.

Antenna TV has announced that there will be a Roswell reunion of sorts at this year's Austin TV festival, on June 8th, 2014.

Here is a portion of the article -

Continuing its tradition of celebrating the works of writer-producer Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), the ATX Television Festival will host a Roswell cast reunion this June. Katims will join the stars of his short-lived WB sci-fi romance series – including Shiri Appleby, Nick Wechsler, and Brendan Fehr – for the event, billed as a 15th anniversary reunion (the show premiered in 1999).

The Roswell reunion — which sadly will not include gruff ol’ Sheriff Jim Valenti, William Sadler, as far as we can tell.

And here is the link to the official website for the
Austin Television Festival.



Fan Meetup

A Roswell fan, bobthejeep, set up a fan meetup for all the Roswell fans headed to the Austin TV Festival.

There is a short write-up and a few pics - here.



Fan Thank You to the Cast
bobthejeep, also put together fan messages and pictures to give to the cast as a thank you. You can see the finished product here - Thank You Book.
