(EDISON, NJ) -- The decision to move forward with Exxxotica New Jersey this weekend at the New Jersey Expo Center in Edison, NJ was not one that was made lightly. After very careful consideration of many different viewpoints, it was decided that Exxxotica could do the residents of New York and New Jersey a greater good by continuing as scheduled.
Obviously in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, a number of features of the event have been added and changed to better benefit and serve the residents of the affected areas.
1) Food & Supply Drive – Exxxotica is humbly asking Everyone to bring at least one non-perishable food item or supply to the event. There will be a special drop-off location on the show floor where a number of stars will be volunteering to help collect the donations. There will certainly be a number of "perks" for anyone who donates including product from our exhibitors, sponsors, stars and Exxxotica as well. Additionally, cash donations will be accepted onsite as well.
The Food & Supply Drive, appropriately named "Exxxotica Gives Back" is in it’s early stages of planning and will be certain to take on a life of its own. Exxxotica is asking the stars appearing to donate a small portion of their time to appearing and greeting fans within the designated area. Exhibiting companies and sponsors are being asked to contribute either financially or by donating a specific product or service that can be auctioned off. Anyone interested in donating or volunteering can email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2) Pre-Sale Ticketing Exceptions – Exxxotica understands that Sandy has drastically affected people’s schedules. For this reason, all single day tickets are no longer day-specific. For example: If a fan purchased a Friday ticket in advance, they can now choose whichever day they would like to use it. Single day tickets are still only good for one day.
3) Exxxotica Party Bus Transportation – New to this year’s event, Exxxotica announced that it would be running a party bus shuttle service from two pickup locations in New York City. This transportation option becomes even more important with the unavailability of fuel in the area. Round trip fees are $30. Buses are filling up fast and are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
"What we saw last week was devastating on so many levels, but if there has been one underlying theme it’s that New York and New Jersey residents are resilient," commented J. Handy, Director of Exxxotica. "Exxxotica NJ 2012 has quickly taken on a totally new direction post-Sandy and that’s to help as many residents in need as possible."
Handy continued, "When we made the decision to move forward with the event, we realized that not only could we bring a lot of much-needed relief and supplies to the New York/New Jersey area, but also some fun into a very somber situation. We’ve already been blown away by the support from our exhibitors, sponsors and most importantly, our fans."
