Posted by Chris on September 8, 2020 at 12:45 AM

Howdy, all:


Just wanted to send you a quick wave to say thank you for a really shiny "Serenity Under the Stars" 15th annual Can't Stop the Serenity Pittsburgh charity screening. Your love kept her in the air even in the face of a global pandemic, and I for one can't help but feel humbled and very grateful because of your overwhelming support of the event. We had Browncoats in attendance from as far away as Philadelphia, State College, Cleveland and even Orlando!


Congratulations once again to the winners of our raffles:


Basket #1: Leslie Pelakh

Basket #2: Christine Anderson

Basket #3: Leslie Maynard

Jayne-Themed Door Prize Basket (courtesy Audrey Hackett of the Delaware Valley Brigade): Kyle Hibler

First-Time Viewers' Raffle (DVD copy of Serenity): Hilary Brown


I realized after the fact that I forgot to tell everyone the contents of the three raffle baskets. Here's what they contained:


  • Mal, Kaylee or River print autographed by the artist, Beth Zwolski Tobias, a.k.a. "The Chalk Girl" (no relation to this cap'n)

  • Serenity key chain
  • Equality Now sticker
  • Sunnydale Slayers sticker
  • PA Browncoats sticker
  • Rivers and Bridges Brigade sticker
  • set of 2 rustic glasses


We don't have an exact donation figure yet, because we're waiting to see if we're going to have to ship any prizes to winners who were not present at the event, but you can look for an announcement soon on this website, Facebook and Twitter.


Thanks again to our sponsors, Geek Frontiers and Jump Cut Theater, as well as the donors of the projection and sound equipment for this year's screening, Academy Pittsburgh and Looking For Group (LFG).


And thanks once again to all of you. If anyone is not on our email list and would like to be added, just send me a wave and let me know. We hope to see you all next year for the 16th annual CSTS Pittsburgh!


Stay safe and keep flyin',


Cap'n Chris
