This is something that Ashley and I were just talking about yesterday.
I've been seeing a lot of CSTS tweets with pictures and whatnot, and
some states are doing a TON of stuff BEFORE the screening. I really
enjoyed last year, but it seemed like all we did was socialize, silent
auction, and watch the movie. Some states are having things like
costume contests, LARP, acting out original and fan-made scenes from
Joss creations. Any chance we could work on some more super-fun stuff

Subject: [firefly-236] Serenity Charity Screening 2010 Wave
Hello fellow Browncoats!
The Serenity Screening is creeping closer and closer so I wanted to
send out an email updating everyone . Thanks to everyone who is
helping out. Here is how we can make this year's screening a success.
Prize donations/Shiny objects:
We need donations for our Prize Drawing/Silent Auction which takes
place right before the screening of Serenity. The ticket prices alone
barely cover the cost of renting the Theater and the 35mm print of the
film, so our Prize Drawing is a huge portion of the proceeds that will
go to our charities. This year again we have the national charity
Equality Now and locally we're supporting the Atlanta Community Food
Bank. These items can be anything from the Whedonverse, be it Firefly,
Serenity, Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse or Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
Check out last year's prize donations here to get an idea. Keep in
mind many of these items were donated by the vendor, so it can be as
easy as asking your favorite vendor to be a prize sponsor.
These items can be brought to our monthly Meetup or I can arrange to
pick them up from you if you can't make it to the Meetup. Please email
me through this site if you have any questions.
Every year we have great people and businesses who help out by just
being a sponsor. A big thanks to last year's sponsors. You might work
for a large corporation that has a charity sponsorship program, or you
might know of a vendor that that would like the publicity or you might
want to be a sponsor yourself. Take a few minutes, send them an email
and let them know about the screening. You can even send them to the
sponsor page here. If you need help with this, let me know.
Can't Stop the Signal/6 degrees of Mr Universe:
Everyone is probably in a few degrees of someone who works for a
newspaper, radio station, TV station or some media company. Ask them
if they can help promote the screening of if they know who in their
company can help. Or if you cannot think of anyone, post about the
screening on forums, blogs, etc.
Ticket discount/volunteer rebate:
Tickets are on sale here. For a limited time both single ticket and
pairs of tickets are discounted. Single tickets are $3 off the regular
price of $15, pairs of tickets are $10 off (2 for $20). If we sell
over 200 tickets, volunteers will be eligible for a $5 rebate. If we
sell over 250 tickets, volunteers will be eligible for a rebate up to
the full amount paid for the ticket. To be eligible, tickets must be
purchased before the day of the event and you must be an active
volunteer for this screening.
Thanks for everyone's continued support for this worthwhile event.
