Utah Browncoats - 15 Years & Still Flyin

Can't Stop The Serenity 2019

Did you know? The Utah Browncoats have been around for 15 years as of May 2019! Help us celebrate this momentous occasion at one of our biggest anniversary year celebrations! You may be familiar with this annual event as we gear up to party for a cause - but this year we have an extra special reason to get out and make a splash. Join us for a screening of the Big Damn Movie and assorted shenanigans and misbehaves.

We welcome you to join us at the Heart of Gold, a lovely little bordello with the appearance of a frozen dinner pack, located on the scenic moon of Bestla, a satellite of Aesir. Aesir orbits in the Red Sun System. There's food and some liquor at the sideboard, make yourselves to home. Our hospitality is legendary, the entertainments varied.

We will have our movie screening of Serenity at Brewvies from 7-9 pm, and then join us next door at Legends Sports Pub from 9:30- midnight for food, auctions, prize drawing, and cosplay contest!

Event Schedule:

6:30 pm - Doors open for early access to the bar for food & drink ordering, Guild assignment & pre-movie socializing.

7:00 -15 - Be in your seats for the show before the show!

7:30 pm - The Big Damn Movie rolls!

9:30pm pm - Movie ends - head over to Legends for auction, prizes, costumes, trivia etc!

We will be raising money for Equality Now and our second charity is Kids Need to Read

We have many great items for our prize drawings and live and silent auctions. From artwork by local artists to hard to find Firefly and Serenity collectibles, everyone can find something they love!

We are looking for a few very special sponsors for this 15th Anniversary Shinding! Please contact Anastasia for more information.

Celebrating our 5th Anniversary

“Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place.”  On this day five years ago, a small group of determined individuals set out to aim to misbehave.  Around a table sat Halo Cure Smithson, William Pace, Lora Harpster, Cheryl Mattson, Anastasia Thomas, Kapi Love, Jeanie Hebdon Coffield, Brian Wiser, Kerry Gisler, and Mindy Allen.  When the meeting concluded, the Utah Browncoats Society was born.  Since our founding in 2015, we have also had the privilege to work with Rob Rodgers, Brooke Moffatt, Jessica Ross, Mark Woodring, Ashley Mortensen, and Nikki Peterson.

We have done some amazing things in these past five years.  We have established ourselves as a 501(c)3 nonprofit.  We have continued our wonderful relationship with Salt Lake Comic Con/FanX®.  Each and every Con we enjoy meeting Browncoats at our booth and appreciate all of our volunteers so very much.  And Dr. Horrible!  “A lot of guy’s ignore the laugh, and that’s about standards.”  You guys.  You guys have standards.

The Can’t Stop the Serenity events each year are such memorable events for many reasons.  Your generosity with the fundraising, JJ’s shouts of “Five dollars!”, and the tireless volunteers we have at the events themselves are more appreciated than we could ever express. We have been able to create beautiful trees to send to the Festival of Trees and raise money for Primary Children’s Hospital.  We had a successful Utah Browncoat Con held in conjunction with our friends at the Nerd Store.  One of the fundraisers you helped us with was to help establish a teen homeless shelter in Utah with the Volunteers of America.  In honor of your generosity, our name is on their wall.

Over the last five years you all have helped us raise $37,480 that we have been able to donate to local and global charities, and we have built our Browncoat family along the way.  Speaking of our Browncoat familiy, this coming May the Utah Browncoats will be celebrating fifteen years!

Thank you for the last five years of helping us become a successful 501c3, and we look forward to many years to come.
