Can’t Stop the Serenity-Orange County 2013

We want to make sure to give a big Browncoat THANK YOU for the generosity of several donors to the “Can’t Stop the Serenity-Orange County 2013” event held last fall.

Will and Holly of Alakazam Comics [] are big Browncoats, and have been generous supporters of CSTS-OC for years, helping publicize the event, and making donations for auction and/or drawings.  This year was no exception.  In addition to lots of promoting of CSTS-OC, they once more donated items for the drawings, including a complete set of the Serenity Collectible Trading Card Set.   Alakazam Comics is located in Irvine across from UCI in the University Center on Campus Dr.  They are not far from the Trader Joe’s.

The Fallen Stars, SoCal rockband led by Browncoats Tracy and Bobbo, donated their wonderful (and rockin’) performance of music from their Firefly-inspired “Leaves on the Wind” project, the first EP of which launched at CSTS-OC.  They donated proceeds from sales of their EP as well.  Check out their website where you can listen to their music, and name your own price to download their songs.  You can also find out about upcoming shows.

Matt Stevens of [] has been extremely generous to CABC, donating pieces of his beautiful laser-etched metal art in support of our charity fundraising efforts, and he came through again for CSTS-OC. donated a full set of the new, literally shiny, Firefly bookmarks (each featuring one character plus an image of the 10th character, Serenity), as well as the large scale (24″ x 12″) “Hero of Canton Jayne Cobb and Crew Limited Edition Metal Art”.  Lots of lucky Browncoats took home a piece (or two) won in the auction, or from the prize drawings.

Chris Thorne of the Write Brothers, Inc. [], Academy Award winners and innovators of writing software for more than 30 years, reached out to CABC to generously donate valuable software for prize drawings.  Two lucky winners took home one copy each of acclaimed programs “Movie Magic Screenwriter” and “Dramatica Story Expert”–a writer’s jackpot!

The CSTS Global sponsors also provided a wide array of lovely items used in the prize drawings.  A full list of them is at  Thanks!
