Thanks to Jodi for this :) I apologize for lack of update yesterday–it was my sister’s 19th birthday. (She’s the baby of the family)

Roswell Fans Boost Charity

Fans of the teen alien series Roswell raised more than $14,000 to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation at their second annual fan party in Los Angeles last month, according to a report on the Modesto Bee Web site. Stars Majandra Delfino and Brendan Fehr were among the VIPs in attendance at the Sheraton Hotel in Universal City in Los Angeles.

The party was sponsored by the Crashdown fan Web site–named for the café where the show’s teen aliens hang out–and its affiliated Fan Forum message board.

Fans also raised about $16,400 in charitable donations as a thank-you to UPN for picking the series up from The WB, which canceled it at the end of last season, the Bee reported.
