Can't Stop The Serenity - Melbourne 2010

See Joss Whedon’s “Serenity” and “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog” on the big screen! This year’s event will also feature raffles & door prizes, charity auction and fantastic Browncoat merchandise. Come in costume!

With Joss Whedon giving the Melbourne Writers Festival keynote address the night before, it's going to be a big damn weekend for Whedon fans.

From the very beginning, Melbourne Browncoats have taken part in the global charity event “Can’t Stop the Serenity”. Since 2006, their local charity events have contributed to the raising of over US$400,000 for Equality Now. Equality Now works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world through the mobilization of public pressure. In 2010 they're celebrating the global event’s 5th Anniversary with a shindig that’s going to be bigger and better than ever before!
