Our apologies to all the Rhode Island Browncoats out there, but the RISFC will not be hosting a CSTS event in 2012. Why? This has been a very busy year for the members and their families who organized this event in the past, and quite frankly, we were just too busy to put it together. We'd rather give you a Firefly/Serenity celebration that's fun and exciting, than a Shindig that's lame, so we decided to put it on the backburner till next year.
One of the benefactors for this event was the R.I. Community Food Bank, so we may still have a food drive this Summer or early Fall. Stay Shiny!!
Can't Stop The Serenity R.I. raised over $350 for Equality Now, and collected 291lbs. of food for the R.I. Community Food Bank!
We had an awesome time, and wish to thank everyone who was involved, including all the R.I. Science Fiction Club members who were on the CSTS R.I. Committee, and Dino Pacelli and his crew at CinemaWorld LIncoln.
Keep an eye on this page for more information about upcoming Equality Now fundraising events sponsored by the RISFC, and stay shiny!
This year's Can't Stop The Serenity R.I. includes a Serenity/Firefly Universe Costume contest. If you like dressing as your favorite Browncoat, Alliance soldier, or even (ahem) Companion, here's your chance to prove your costuming skills. The judging begins around 9:30pm, and be ready to show off your costume in front of the movie audience. Prizes in different categories will be awarded,
so dress up all shiny and join the Serenity fun!
Are you a member of a Sci Fi Fan Club in the New England area? CSTS R.I. has about a dozen spaces available for your group to set up a fan table that evening. We're looking for SF fan clubs, comic artists, etc. to fill up the lobby space at CinemaWorld in Lincoln Mall that evening, and best of all, the table is free!
Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information.
CSTS R.I. is scheduled for Saturday, July 23, 2011, starting at 9 pm, at CinemaWorld, Lincoln, R.I. Watch this page for more information!
