The Toronto Browncoats: Doing Good Works.

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Thank you!
You did it.
You made the Can't Stop The Serenity screening in Toronto the best yet.
One Hundred more people attended this year than last! The auction was wild and fun and the movie itself was a joy to watch in a room with 275 other browncoats - or those who soon would be!

The bills are still coming in, and so is some of the profit so we have no total yet. We'll announce it as soon as we can.

Thank you to those who worked so hard to make it happen. To those who spread the word. To those who donated. To those who came and bought. And bought. And bought. ;)

Thank you.

UPDATE: 5,600!! Yes, this is how much was donated to Equality Now from the Toronto Can't Stop the Serenity. Well done!!!

More great autographed items.
Take a look at this picture. Can you recognize all the signatures? Jonathan Woodward, sure. And Morena's. Ron Glass's is clear to read, as is Christina Hendrick's. But how about Michael Fairman's? (Yes, that is 2 of the Firefly Villains we have there.) and how about the lovely Nectar Rose?
Or the singer of the Firefly theme, Mr. Sonny Rhodes himself?
And whose signature is tucked down beneath Jonathan's? Why it's Robert Lee - the Fruity Oaty Bar guy himself.
You won't find this assortment of autographs anywhere else.
See you Saturday.
Three days left!
Have you got what you need?
The Address? (551 Mount Pleasant)
The Time? (Doors open at 1:00)
Cash? (Tickets are $12.00,get you in the door to see the movie AND give you a chance at very nice door prizes including custom Tshirts, Serenity Action figures, Jayne hats, and a DVD player! (to name just a few). The cash also allows you to pay for that wonderful auction item you just know you want to win.
All Your Friends? (You don't want them to miss out, do you?)
An Appetite? (For the shindig afterwards)

Now here is
something you won't
see everyday!

This auction item was given only to those lucky few who attended James Marster's CD launch for his latest album, Like a Waterfall. Sure, the album can be bought anywhere but the picture is an exclusive. And they are both signed.
Many thanks to Steve Himber, James' manager for donating this one.

For Sale
The mugs and tshirts have been shown in posts below but we do have more than just those. We also have these wonderful posters in 2 sizes -the extra large movie poster size and smaller 11X17 ones - for sale.
QMX has been very good to Can't Stop The Serenity. They have enabled us to buy their great Bank Heist Money and sell it at the wonderful price of only $15.00. They have it listed on their website for $20.00.!!! Get it at the Toronto Can't Stop The Serenity screening, save money and support Equality Now.
Both the posters and the money packs are limited in quantity so be sure to get there early.
And have we mentioned, bring lots of cash? :D

You know you've always wanted one. Or maybe two - one to take out of the box and play with, umm, pose. Here is your chance. We've put together a few bundles based on the characters of the show and we are including action figures in some. And these are door prizes!

A Second Auction.

Modeller extraordinaire Alex has spent 2 years of his life making a scale model of Serenity from scratch. It does exactly what you would expect a Firefly class ship to do - the side engines light up, it rotates where it should and it's big! The small Serenity is the QMX version, for comparison.Add Image
This amazing piece will be auctioned off on eBay with all proceeds to benefit Equality Now. We'll let you know when the auction starts.
For more pictures and information, visit Alex's website.

For Sale and Ideas Exchange

We're adding new ideas to this year's screening. As well as the Tshirts, we also have 2 size posters for sale and some mugs! These mugs are selling for only $10.00 and since quantities are limited, we expect they will sell out quickly.

The posters will be in "Movie Poster " size (24X 36) and in the smaller 11X17 size. All based on this year's striking design.

This will also be your chance to hook up with just the people you've been looking for. Need more people for your Serenity RPG? Want an authentic Jayne hat or a custom T? We are encouraging those offering stuff and those looking for stuff (or people!) to hook up via a bulletin board we will have up in the theatre.

Our sponsors are generous.

The Toronto screening is lucky that we have businesses willing to donate great items to the Can't Stop the Serenity screening. Pixel Barrel has donated this magnificent River Triumphant stature. There are only 1,000 in existence.

FireflyCargoBay has given us a Firefly inspired throw (blanket) that has to be seen to be believed. It's perfect for cuddling up in as you watch Firefly yet again.

Ma Cobb's Hat Shoppe is well known for its authentic style Jayne hats. We've got two of them.
