SoCal Browncoats add really shiny extras! In addition to all the prizes and fun you can expect at any CSTS screening, the SoCal Browncoats-organized screening in Pasadena has some really shiny extras to ogle/win/buy at their screening tonight, including special donations from QMx!

The SoCal Browncoats keep on outdoing themselves. Their CSTS screening is tonight (Friday, June 22nd, 2007).

In addition to all the prizes and fun that you'll find at other CSTS locations, attendees will get the opportunity to win they've got some exclusive items from QMx and some cool stuff signed by Adam.

They have a CSTS poster and an uncut CSTS LA ticket sheet autographed by Adam Baldwin added to the prize list.

QMx have donated some amazing stuff to be sold/auctioned to benefit Equality Now: One of the last of the sold-out Serenity Blueprints sets (a special Final Engineering Proof copy!) which will be auctioned off, and some unfolded Miranda maps (as seen in the money packs) signed by Geoff Mandel which will be sold, I believe.

I wish I was in SoCal so I could attend!

Dang it. See what happens when you live on the wrong side of the country...ya miss all the cool stuff. But we don't have earthquakes (much) and we do have steamed crabs...so I guess that is something! lol
All you Browncoats that are attending....HAVE A BLAST!!!
Sounds like fun... We had a blast at our showing in Raleigh NC last night! It was better than the year before and last years was pretty great. Tons of new faces - which means our family is growing... These events are so special... I was proud to be a fan last night and to know that in our own way we are making a difference somewhere. Plus - it's just great to so our big damn movie on a big damn screen!!!

Some good swag there. We've got some great prizes up for grabs a the Vancouver screening...plus, Jewel Staite is going to be in attendance. :D
pff. Whatever. :)

It's really nice that she's showing up there. I'm guessing that helped you sell out?
I am so going to this. It's technically my first official attendance at a Browncoat-thingy - I've been to Whedon-y panels with a whedonesque member, and met Goners peripherally at the recent SoCal Backup bash, but I've never done a Browncoat event.

I totally expect to be dazzled by the brilliant organization, the spectacular prizes, and the glittering roster of unannounced celebrities that just happen to pop in to see us. :>
danregal - yeah, once word got out that Jewel was coming, it sold out very fast.
I just got back from this, it's 1:40 am and I should be sleeping, but I'd rather come on here and say that the very cool blueprints were auctioned off and some amazing fan got them for $500!!!

It was a great night, even I won something, a pretty pendant of the Serenity Chinese symbol, yay!
Hee. I wouldn't saying raising your hand repeatedly as your partner goads you on wuz all that, but that was me. I done got the blueprints for *gulp* yep, $500 smackers. QMx makes beautiful stuff - I got their Serenity cashy-money earlier, and I'm sure I'll love my #10 in a Limited Edition of 750, but I'm afraid to open it for fear of hurting it... I will tomorrow...

Yay for a great event, the donors and sponsors, the audience, the raffle buyers and winners, the highly motivated and organized SoCal Browncoats, and my partner, who kept raising his hand for me and whispering, "You really want it, we're both graphic artists and so we really appreciate its beauty, and it's for charity. Go on, keep bidding..."

And yay for Joss, who, by the way, made one helluva movie. How great to see it on the Big Screen as intended, and know that cash is going to Equality Now in honor of this talented man who has inspired us all.

"All I ask is this: Do something. Try something. Speaking out, showing up, writing a letter, a check, a strongly worded e-mail. Pick a cause there are few unworthy ones. And nudge yourself past the brink of tacit support to action." - Joss, http://whedonesque.com/comments/13271
It was an unbelievable night. I'm going to have a hard time getting to sleep now. Yay for winning a prize. And yay for the blueprints bringing in $500, I did a double take when I heard that. I posted a thank you on the SoCal group, might as well repost it here:

Thank you one and all for making tonight a success. Thank you to Ray
for stepping up months ago and offering to take the lead. He did an
excellent job running the crew tonight and with all the work to get us
here. Thank you to all the volunteers. Thank you to our sponsors,
prize donors and the theater. Thank you to each and every one of you
that donated, bought cool swag, and enjoyed a great movie with a
theater full of Browncoats.

And lastly, thank you to Joss Whedon for creating the thing that has
brought us all together. Happy Birthday Joss!

Ray will announce the preliminary total we raised tonight after he
recovers :) We should have an exact total soon after.
