On Saturday, October 27, 2012, Whedonopolis/Fandom Charities will celebrate the Fifth Anniversary of their acclaimed Halloween Screenings of The Guild & Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. This year’s screening will be held at the historic Barnsdall Gallery Theater, in the Barnsdall Art Park, in Hollywood, CA Tickets are now available for purchase.
The beneficiary this year will be Best Friends Animal Society, a grassroots organization working toward making the Los Angeles area a “no-kill” city by placing dogs & cats considered “unadoptable” into good homes, and reducing the number of unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs.
We will also have a canned food drive for SOVA , a Community Food & Resource Program which responds to hunger in our community by providing individuals and families with the resources they need to regain self-sufficiency and independence, including free groceries, case management, counseling, and other supportive services, including legal counseling and job search assistance.
Previous screenings have raised thousand of dollars for charities such as The Mr Holland’s Opus Foundation, PATH Ventures (People Assisting the Homeless), The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation and Kids Need to Read (co-founded by Whedon alumnus, Nathan Fillion, CASTLE).
Additionally, Whedonopolis/Fandom Charities will again be hosting the closing event at San Diego Comic-Con on July 15th, the Buffy Musical “Once More With Feeling” with a special surprise. If you are attending the con, please join us!
