hamiltons_091109-134_print1RCN Corporation is a leading provider of all-digital and high definition video, high speed internet and premium voice services.  RCN hosted a Fangtasia event on Sept. 11 and Nelsan Ellis made a guest appearance.  Two hundred fans showed up for the event and the line stretched down the block.  To turn Hamilton’s into Fangtasia, the building was filled with coffins and tombstones.  Their version of True Blood was also being served along with food and other refreshments.

Twenty fans were able to meet Nelsan and get autographed photos.  Nelsan is a Chicago native and is best known for his role as Lafayette Reynolds on True Blood.  Tom McKay, general manager of RCN Chicago, says:

“The turnout for ‘Fangtasia‘ surpassed our expectations. Thanks to our partnership with HBO and Nelsan Ellis, who was very interactive with the crowd, the event was an excellent way for us to reach out to our customers including college students in the surrounding area.”

RCN will also be sponsoring blood drives at the University of Illinois Medical Center on Sept. 17 and 24 to continue with the True Blood theme.  Donors will be receiving giveaways.  Visit for more information.
