TRIVIA QUESTION #3

The first two questions were probably pretty easy if you are a fan of Joss Whedon's shows.  This one might be a little bit harder.

#3 from Dollhouse:  What was Priya / Sierra's occupation before she became a doll?

Remember, all answers should be sent in one e-mail after the last question on June 17th, arriving before midnight on Friday, June 19th.  You must be present at the event to win.  Get your tickets now!  T-shirts too!

T-SHIRTS AVAILABLE NOW!!

10 Year Celebration t-shirts are now available for purchase.  They are $25 cash in person or $26 with PayPal via the buttons on the right.  Men's sizes range from Small to 3XL and women's from Small to 2XL.  Please make sure you select the right size.  Deadline for payment and ordering is midnight June 2nd.  The shirt is red with a mostly white - and black Serenity - logo and was designed by Adam Levermore aka lexigeek, who designed the t-shirts the first two years.  The shirts are Fruit of the Loom and the design is silkscreened on.  These shirts are available only for a limited time so order now and pick them up at the event.  (If you want one mailed to you, please contact me directly at cstsvancouver@gmail.com to make arrangements for shipping charges.)  Here's a picture of the shirt.  (The back is plain.)

TRIVIA QUESTION #1

The trivia questions are all Whedon-related and I'm sure if you haven't watched one of the shows, you can look it up. :)  All answers should be submitted by e-mail to cstsvancouver@gmail.com by midnight, Friday, June 19th.  If there are multiple people with correct answers, a draw will be held at the event on June 20th.  You must be present to claim the prize.

#1.  From Buffy the Vampire Slayer:  What was the name of the computer teacher who dated Giles?

Question #2 will be up the middle of next week.

I saw pictures last night of one of the items that will be going up for auction, made by local 'nerd' Julia Simpson.  You are going to want to save up your cash-y money to bid on that and the other items she is making!  Pictures will go up when I have them in hand.  In the meantime, there will be other photos making their way to these posts.  And if anyone has an item - no matter the fandom - and would like to donate it as an auction or prize item, please feel free to contact me at the above address.

WE'RE BACK!!

Yes, there will be a CSTS Vancouver event this year, in honour of the 10th year of Can't Stop The Serenity.  Ten years - and the global fundraising event for Equality Now and local charities has raised almost $1,000,000!!  Good work and kudos to all those who have supported and worked on events around the world.  This year's logo (on the right) was designed by Adam Levermore, who also designed the logo for the first year of events.

Here in Vancouver our total is just about $30,000 for eight years, and we'd like to make this year the best one ever.

DATE:     Saturday, June 20, 2015

TIME:     Noon to 6 pm

PLACE:  H.R. MacMillan Space Centre, 1100 Chestnut Street, Vancouver

TICKETS:  $15 in person; $16 via PayPal (tickets will go on sale this weekend)

There will be a screening of "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" screened by permission from Time Science Blood Club, LLC.  ©Time Science Blood Club, LLC. All rights reserved."

In addition, we will have our Evil Laugh contest (so get practising!), costume contest, trivia bingo, silent and live auctions, and of course the screening of Serenity.  

We will also have a trivia contest on the blog, so keep checking back for that, pictures of our auction items and the reasons why we do this event each year.  T-shirts will be on sale shortly.

PLEASE NOTE:  There is no food allowed in the auditorium although you are welcome to bring food with you - and certainly try some of the delicious Firefly & Serenity-inspired confections from C&C Cakery - as long as you eat outside the auditorium.  Only liquids in containers with lids are allowed inside.  For anyone who wishes to stay after the event, we have the Lounge booked until 9 pm and will probably order pizza while we wind down.

Those people who are entering the costume contest, please proceed to the Lounge between Noon and 12:25 so the judges can see your costume and make their decision.

Don't forget to bring lots of cashy money with you, as we don't accept credit cards at this point.  There is an ATM in the lobby of the building should you find something so irresistable that you must bid on it.  Most of all, enjoy yourselves with old friends and new while you help women and girls less fortunate than we are.
