Cinefamily's Fantastic Elastic 24 Hour Fundraiser Telethon

Cinefamily wants your money and you as members and there going about it in the coolest way possible, for free as a 24 hour telethon of entertainment.
Starts Dec 17 at noon to Dec 18 at noon. Just come in and seat down and maybe give a little to have the Cinefamily provide awesome content throughout the next year.
