Thanks to the generosity of Felicia Day, the Geek and Sundry* team, and Happy Harbor Comics, we will be hosting an all day (seasons 1-5) “The Guild” screening event on September 29, 2012 beginning at 10:30 am.
This screening is a Can’t Stop the Serenity (CSTS) affiliate event. Happy Harbor Comics (10729-104 Ave) has donated space for the screening.
Admission is by cashy money donation. Throw a few loonies or twoonies (or more!) into the donation bin when you stop by to watch the screening. In addition, we will have a few silent auction items and door prizes on hand for those in attendance. Proceeds will be split between our charity partners; Equality Now and YESS.org.
UPDATE [Aug 31, 2012]: Let’s take this fundraiser to the next level! YESS is in urgent needs for a number of items for their shelter. As well as collecting cashy monies on Sept 29th, we’ll be collecting “in kind” donations.
Visit http://yess.org/get-involved/in-kind-donation/ to find a list of desperately needed items. The page also contains a list of items that they cannot accept at this time. Please take time out of your busy day to look over the list to see if there is anything you may want to bring in.
Can’t stay all day? Pop in and watch an episode or one to two seasons. Everyone is welcome to drop by to say hello.

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.
