    Great event. The Blu-Ray was better than the remaining old scratchy films that Universal hasn't yet accidentally destroyed.

    My son and I had a wonderful time! It was amazing to spend the evening with so many other people who also appreciate Joss Whedon and Serenity! The raffle baskets were impressive, the food simple but an excellent choice, the music truly made the evening and singing along to Dr. Horrible was so fun.

    The biggest diappointment was that the blue screen photo op didn't take place. That could have really been a money maker and a fun momento!

    Totally awesome event! The music, the movies, and company was great. My only bummer was that I didn't win the raffle basket I dumped a bunch of tickets into. Still, let's do this again!

    Fantastic and the smoothest run event that we've done so far! No major problems, just the usual minor stuff that causes delays and requires split second decisions that may or may not, determine the ultimate fate of the world. ;) Hearing Vixy, Tony & Marian Call sing together was something that legends are made of, and then on top of that awesomeness, we had SJ Tucker, Betsy Tinney and Sunnie Larsen to increase that awesomeness to the nth degree! If I hadn't been there to witness it, I'd have never believed it.
    MOHAI and its people are superb to work with and their generosity towards our event is greatly apprecated - Thanks Christine and crew - you Rock!
    If we choose to do this again next year, how are we going to top this year??

    wasn't as well organized as we would have liked. not as laid back as the last one we went to...got a very pushy vibe from several folks in attendance. we understand there was a very admirable goal, but the pushy raffle sales techniques were a little annoying. spending $30 a piece to get told to spend more money in a down economy with a wife that had been unemployed for two months...well, you get the picture, i'm sure. the music was awesome :) overrunning the end time by an hour wasn't so great, and we think this was almost entirely due to the raffle issues. we take the bus, so getting out on time is fairly imperative. we realize it's hard to run a charity event in times like these, but the issues we dealt with were enough for us to decide not to do this again. next year we will watch our own dvd, and just donate online. that there is another issue, as we were led to believe we'd be watching the film, but it was glaringly obvious someone put a dvd in the system.

    Awesome as always. Things started late, but as I was late myself this was shiny. MOHAI was a good choice of venue. Mighty fine shindig. -"We have done the ridiculous, and that makes us wacky....."

    Went great. Can't speak for the after-movie party but the movie was well-attended, enthusiastically viewed and the raffle fun and funny. Not to mention the swag for the raffle was unbelievable, really amazing baskets this year.
