Personally, I think that Joss Whedon's "Firefly" series was the best thing to ever grace the small screen, and the fact that it was prematurely ripped from the airwaves is one of the greatest tragedies of our generation.
Now that I have that off of my chest, I am very excited to let you all in on a great charity event coming to Pittsburgh on July 8th. Now in its sixth year, "Can't Stop the Serenity" is a worldwide event that organizes screenings of Whedon's "Serenity" (the feature film that wrapped up the "Firefly"story line) to benefit "Equality Now", a charity that works for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women around the world.
The Pittsburgh Event is being held on July 8th, at the Orpheus Singing Society (6301 Butler Street, Pittsburgh) beginning at 5:00 p.m. In addition to the screening, there will also be raffles, activities (Nerf Gun Shooting Range!), and a vendor marketplace.
