The Guild – Thanks to the generosity of Felicia Day and the Geek and Sundry team, we have been approved to host screenings of “The Guild” in the weeks leading up to our CSTS event (June 23, 2012). Geek & Sundry is the new home of “The Guild” and other fab content such as “Flog” (Felicia’s video blog), “Tabletop” (Wil Wheaton’s tabletop gaming show) and “Sword & Laser” (a Scifi/Fantasy book club).

Screenings start at 7pm. Admission to these screenings are free. Donations to the Edmonton Food Bank would be appreciated.

Marian Call – In concert – In conjunction with Happy Harbor Comics (10729 – 104 Avenue, Edmonton) we will be hosting a Marian Call concert on Monday, June 18, 2012.

Alaskan singer-songwriter Marian Call is returning to Alberta. Her music has been described by fans as “funky acoustic joy jazz” — she plays eclectic, humorous and heartfelt songs that appeal to crowds of all ages and demographics. Her signature Underwood typewriter, rain stick, and kazoo can be heard in most of her local (and national) performances.

Marian is not being paid directly for her performance; we’re suggesting a donation of $10-$15 per person to show your appreciation of her talents. Homeless for a Night

The Edmonton Youth Emergency Shelter Society, one of the charities we fundraise for at our CSTS, is holding their annual Homeless For a Night fundraiser on June 1, 2012.
