Hello fellow Browncoats!
The Serenity Screening is creeping closer and closer (9/25/11) so I wanted to send out an email updating everyone . Thanks to everyone who is helping out. Here is how we can make this year's screening a success.
Prize donations/Shiny objects:
We need donations for our Prize Drawing/Silent Auction which takes place right before the screening of Serenity. The ticket prices alone barely cover the cost of renting the Theater and the 35mm print of the film, so our Prize Drawing is a huge portion of the proceeds that will go to our charities. This year again we have the national charity Equality Now and locally we're supporting the Atlanta Community Food Bank. These items can be anything from the Whedonverse, be it Firefly, Serenity, Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse or Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Check out last year's prize donations here to get an idea. Keep in mind many of these items were donated by the vendor, so it can be as easy as asking your favorite vendor to be a prize sponsor.
These items can be brought to our monthly Meetup or I can arrange to pick them up from you if you can't make it to the Meetup. Please email me through this site if you have any questions.
Every year we have great people and businesses who help out by just being a sponsor. A big thanks to last year's sponsors. You might work for a large corporation that has a charity sponsorship program, or you might know of a vendor that that would like the publicity or you might want to be a sponsor yourself. Take a few minutes, send them an email and let them know about the screening. You can even send them to the sponsor page here. If you need help with this, let me know.
Can't Stop the Signal/6 degrees of Mr Universe:
Everyone is probably in a few degrees of someone who works for a newspaper, radio station, TV station or some media company. Ask them if they can help promote the screening of if they know who in their company can help. Or if you cannot think of anyone, post about the screening on forums, blogs, etc.
Can't Stop the Signal on Paper/Flyers, Flyers, Flyers
Hot off the presses! Well, the PDF press. We have 3 different flyers you can print out and spread around: a full page color flyer, a full page black & white flyer and a 4 per page black and white flyer. Download the pdf of the one you like best and help spread the word!
Ticket discount/volunteer rebate:
Tickets are on sale here. For a limited time both single ticket and pairs of tickets are discounted. Single tickets are $3 off the regular price of $15, pairs of tickets are $10 off (2 for $20). If we sell over 200 tickets, volunteers will be eligible for a $5 rebate. If we sell over 250 tickets, volunteers will be eligible for a rebate up to the full amount paid for the ticket. To be eligible, tickets must be purchased before the day of the event and you must be an active volunteer for this screening.
Thanks for everyone's continued support for this worthwhile event.
