Can’t stop the Browncoats in Minneapolis

The Can’t Stop the Serenity team in Minneapolis are excited to present their event on August 11th at the historic Riverview Theater in Minneapolis. The Riverview, a beautifully restored Art Deco treasure, has hosted their event since the inaugural event in June 2006.

In addition to raffles of Firefly and Serenity merchandise and t-shirt sales, they’re having a costume contest for adults and under 13s.

Organising team member Barbara says “All of our funds go to Equality Now but at the same time we provide a platform for many local members of fandoms to appear in costume and promote their own charitable endeavors. The 501 Legion, Royal Manticoran Navy and USS Nokomis send contingents to our event.”

The team are all involved because they believe in the mission of Equality Now – that women and girls deserve to live in freedom and dignity and have the right to education and good health.

Barbara concludes “Many of our members have been involved since 2006. I was a crew member of the FireflyTalk podcast and our efforts to promote the event, along with Can’t Stop the Signal, taught me the effectiveness of people willing to work together for a common cause. Using what we love to raise funds for causes in which we believe gives the entire team a rush of pleasure and something to look forward to all summer!”

Tickets to the event are available through Brown Paper tickets at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2581040
