Join us from September 20-22nd at Edmonton Expo for a weekend of fandom and fun. You can find us at booth #2504, across from the food court and not too far away from the ticketing hall and panel rooms. Hop inside the doors and look to your right. You should be able to see Serenity once you walk through the doors..
You bring your wallets and we’ll bring a gorgeous Lego Serenity designed and built by Don Verrier, a new game to play, and lots of shiny goodies to spend your credits on.
As in previous years, we’ll accept payment in cashy monies, credit and debit and all proceeds from funds raised at the booth this year will be donated to Edmonton’s Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS.org) and the Women’s Emergency Accommodation Centre (e4c Alberta).
Lego Serenity. Designed and built by Don Verrier. Serenity has been signed by Nathan Fillion and Mark Sheppard. Once she has collected a few more cast signatures, we’ll auction her off for charity.
In March, we made a $255.46 donation to Kids Need to Read in honour of Nathan Fillion’s birthday. Funds were raised through a penny drive, bottle drive, and selling Jayne Hats prior to our Hero of Canton flash mob. An extra pat on the back goes out to the Semper family, who raised $175 of the total donation this month; must have had bags of pennies hiding in closets!
And now, without further ado, the flash mob video!
Our screening was amazing this year. 156 excited Browncoats and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog fans were in attendance. Four had never seen Serenity before!
We’re still waiting on our final tally but know it will be great thanks to a last minute shot out and auction item donation from the Captain himself on Friday.
We do anticipate it will be lower than last year since we had a venue switch and also added the extra costs of having the 35mm print couriered to and from Toronto. Was worth every penny to see that print on the big screen again!
Will post final numbers as soon as we have them. In the meantime, thanks to everyone who supported the event, came out on the day, bid on auction items, and shared laughter and tears with us. 2012 was a wonderful year and we’re looking forward to 2013!
