“Love. You can learn all the math in the ‘Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love,
she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when
she oughta fall down, tells you she’s hurtin’ ‘fore she keels. Makes her a home.”
– Captain Mal Reynolds, Serenity
A NOTE FROM THE ORGANIZER
First, thank you for being here. I don’t say that lightly, this really wouldn’t be happening without you. Whether you’re just finding out about Firefly or you’re a veteran fan, this event is a way to connect with your fellow Browncoats, see our beloved Serenity on the big screen, and just have fun. Regardless of love though, your ticket is what is bringing this event to life.
HOW THIS EVENT WORKS
The Kentucky Theater is allowing us use of their smaller, 320-seat State theater. Rent will be due two weeks prior to the event in mid-September, so we need to sell roughly 60 tickets in the next couple weeks or the whole thing is a no-go. That’s right, without advanced sales we won’t have an event. So spread the word far and wide, and encourage your friends, family, and other fans to consider getting their tickets now because, let’s face it, Serenity on the big screen is what dreams are made of for us fans.
WHO IS BENEFITTING
Aside from us getting to see it ::cheer:: we’ve got two charities to raise money for. All 100% of the profits are going to: Equality Now, an international human rights organization for women and children, and Lexington’s own Arbor Youth Services which provides multiple programs for at-risk youth and their families including a drop-in shelter.
HOW DO I BECOME A SPONSOR?
This year we’re just getting started so it’s fairly easy. We have a wishlist of needs and expenses to cover, the first of which is our theater rental which has to be met by September 12th. If you’re interested in helping, and God bless, you can reach me direct via email. Sponsors get pretty decent perks and I’m more than happy to discuss options from taking care of items on our list or making a direct donation on our behalf. I’m hoping to make this an annual, much bigger event, and have some things in the works, so drop me a note and let’s brainstorm!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
Thanks for listening, thanks for being here, and thanks for spreading the word to the corners of the ‘verse. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you and watching Serenity break atmo!
Stay shiny and keep flyin’,
