It's a busy weekend July 27 - 29 with multiple events happening.

Perth starts it off with a CSTS Shindig that promises much merriment and a costume contest and probably a drink or two.

Also on Saturday, the Rocky Mountain Browncoats are back for another year. There will be a costume contest before the showing of Serenity, so come prepared! The Cinema Grill is a full service restaurant and bar, so the shindig will start as soon as you enter!
After the tragic event in Aurora on July 20th, Denver CSTS will be giving 25% to the Aurora Shooting Victims Fund and they ask those who can't make it to the screening to still give via the donate button on their website.

Raleigh, N.C. Browncoats are having their Serenity screening on July 29th. There will be a raffle and a costume contest and since their venue is also a full service restaurant and cinema, come hungry! There will be no tickets at the door so buy yours in advance.

Why Scott Allie & Dark Horse support CSTS

We asked our sponsors why, year after year, they support Can't Stop the Serenity & Equality Now. This is what Scott Allie of Dark Horse had to say.

"We've always loved the fact that Can't Stop the Serenity started here in Portland, the same as Dark Horse. We deal with a lot of different kinds of fandom in comics, and it's amazing when this silly fantasy stuff that we all love so much can generate real good in the world.

What the Browncoats achieve with CSTS and all their charitable efforts is humbling and adds to our pride in contributing to the world Joss created."
