Let the wrist slitting begin Matt.....George Lucas was present at this...but he decided not to hang out with us and hung with Mayor Daley instead......oh well....

Event coordinator: Cheryl Whitaker-aka Whinter Fenlynn

What a weird fun time


Amen brother...
or as Han Solo said...

"I have traveled from one end of the galaxy to the other kid.... and I have seen a lot of strange things......."

but this one took the cake....

We were on hand to mingle with the positively wealthy at this annual fundraiser for the Museum of Science and Industry.

Even George Lucas showed up with the Mayor of Chicago.
Indeed....so close to the "Maker"...but ....we didn't geek out....lol... wink2

and not to mention...
Bill Kurtis ..(former Chicago News Anchor who now does independent work) .who really seemed genuinely nice....hmmmm....should I wash my robe after Bill wore it? lol...Bill seemed to enjoy having us as his "troop"...and making his grand entrance with us to begin the Charity Auction. The first item on the Charity Auction was a Star Wars package...and...Bill tossed in us "Characters" as part of the prize...we would be on hand for the high bidder's private party at the SW Exhibit.

And...yeah...that...

The "script" changed like every 5 minutes until I wasn't sure what in the heck I was supposed to be doing...
Kudos to you Cheryl.....as you must have been going crazy with trying to keep track of exactly what is was that we were supposed to be doing...and where it was that we were suupposed to be...

But....
like all of our events....it was certainly an "experience"....and life is about our experiences....
so...
mark this one down in the "oddity" column.... Very Happy
And...as always...it is the great company of our fellow members that is the cornerstone of any event....

Awesome pictures! I'm just sorry to hear Mr Lucas was unable to attend due to commitments w/the Mayor. But like you said life is full of twist and turns in which we just have to roll with the punches. All and all I commend you all on a job well done Smile Great group effort.

hopefully the MSI official photographers will share their pictures with us soon - then we will have the pics of lucas and all of the big-wigs that were there feeling all geeky near us (you'd be amazed at how many of the ladies in ball gowns wanted their picture taken with the queen) Smile
