Details: Zombicon has been a growing Fort Myers charity event since 2007. After the great success of Zombicon 2010, organizers decided the event was too large to be under another organization’s non-profit umbrella.

Pushing DaiZies, Inc. was established August 17, 2011, and is now 3 years old. "Pushing DaiZies, Inc.”, is an official 501c3 non-profit organization built around the local arts community and local partner charities.

Since 2007, Zombicon has been a charity block party, priding itself on bringing art and interactivity to historic downtown Fort Myers. This celebration of Fort Myers’ zombie history (having been the set for the opening scene in George Romero’s “Day of the Dead” filmed in 1985), has grown into a “bona-fide phenomenon”, and is now Fort Myers’ largest attended event. With the continued success and growth of Zombicon, we have become an international event destination, attracting people from all over the world.

As the event continues to grows so does the need for volunteers and sponsors. Volunteers are essential to this fund raisers success or demise. This event has become a signature event which other non-profits rely on. In the past our event has collected over 5,000 pounds of food for local food pantries, consistently break blood donation records for the Lee Memorial Blood Center (2011 we collected 127 pints of blood and 40 bone marrow donors).


Please help Pushing DaiZies achieve these goals and continue to inspire the community through art and charitable deeds. Every donation, volunteer or sponsorship helps!
