Slaying For a Good Cause! Help the Buffyverse Made a Difference

Even though Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel have been off the air for awhile, the power of the Buffyverse is still strong!

Please come join the Slay-A-Thon and help to support children in need. Shiai Mata from SlayerLit let us know about this very special fundraising event that is being done in association with the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

9th Annual Slay-A-Thon
Make-A-Wish Foundation Benefit

Saturday, June 25, 2011
11:30 AM – Midnight
Dave & Buster’s Gold Coast – Showroom
1030 N. Clark Street (Clark at Oak)
Chicago, Illinois

From the Slay-a-thon web site:

Slay-A-Thon is a 12-hour marathon viewing of Joss Whedon’s work.

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Angel
  • Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog

It’s a chance to meet and laugh with other Whedon fans, and have a great time while simultaneously raising money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Illinois.

You are not required to attend the entire event. Stay for the day or stop by for your favorite episodes.

The best way you can help is to “sponsor” participants like Shiai Mata who have volunteered their time to attend the event and to watch hours upon hours of Buffyverse videos. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!

We hope that if you have a little spare change in your pocket you will be able to make a contribution in order to help their Wish Kids.
