March 7th, 8th, and 9th Texas Fear Fest will be helping to raise money and awareness for the West Memphis Three – three men who have been falsely imprisoned for murder since 1993. Recently completed DNA testing (not available back in 1993) does not match any of the three men, and their many supporters hope to see them freed in the near future. Tammy Adin (coordinator for the West Memphis Three World Awareness Day) and Anje Vela (president of Music4Life) will be teaming up with John Gray of Texas Fear Fest to bring donated items from Skeleton Key Auctions and other sources for a huge silent auction of memorabilia, artwork and many other items, to raise money for the West Memphis Three’s legal defense fund.
Texas Fear Fest is a horror-oriented for-profit media event held annually in the Dallas, Texas area. Guests have included actors, directors, and producers from classic and upcoming horror films. Texas Fear Fest is presented in conjunction with horror websites Pit of Horror.com and Dread Central.com.
