All of your zombie dreams are about to come true. Fans of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” can win a meet and greet with the Season 7 cast when they hit New York Comic Con on Saturday, October 8.
“The Walking Dead” is doing the giveaway as a way to raise money for Haiti Air Ambulance, a non-profit organization that provides “emergency medical helicopter services to the people of Haiti.” The winner and a friend will get flown to New York and stay in a 4-star hotel. They will get to watch “The Walking Dead” Comic Con panel from VIP Seats, take a photo with the cast, as well as “enjoy passes to the rest of the New York Comic Con events.”
Entering is set up through Omaze, and is pretty simple. Those who want a chance to meet the cast can donate $10, which will give them 100 entries to win. Fans with a bigger budget can receive more entries, plus other prizes. Donating $100 will get you 1,000 entries and a “Walking Dead” t-shirt. A $500 donation will get you 5,000 entries, as well as a t-shirt and the “Walking Dead: Survival Instinct” video game. A $1,500 donation will get you 15,000 entries and a pop-up book signed by “select members of the cast.” Those with $5,000 to donate will get 50,000 entries and “The Walking Dead Zombie Burst Limited Edition guitar autographed by select cast members.”
The winner will be chosen at random, with odds depending on how many tickets a single person purchases. All entries must be submitted online by September 29, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. PST. To be eligible to win you must be at least 13 years old. If the winner is under 18 years old they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
This year “The Walking Dead” New York Comic Con panel is being held at Madison Square Garden, not at the Javits Center where NYCC events usually take place. Cast members set to appear on Saturday, October 8 have not been confirmed. However, fans in attendance will definitely be able to feast on a sneak peek look at Season 7.
“The Walking Dead” Season 7 premieres on AMC on Sunday, Oct. 23 at 9 p.m. EDT.
