DK Publishing/ LFL - Star Wars Read Day,10-06-2012
Event Name: Star Wars Reads Day
Event Purpose/Benefit/Charity/Cause: Appearance in exchange for book donation
Venue: Barnes & Noble
Venue address: 1565 Niagara Falls Blvd Suite 300, Amherst, NY 14228
Event Date: Oct. 6, 2012 Start Time 12:30 PM End Time 2:30 PM

We began by handing out "Galactic Passports" to all of the kids who came for the event, and they were instructed to go through the store and locate the 4 Star Wars characters hidden and get their passport stamped.







Once they had all of the stamps the kids were cleared to go to the craft tables.





We did Trivia, and then a special guest came and read a story to all of the kids about space travel.




Yes, I know it's not a Star Wars book, but that's what my daughter asked me to bring home for her...


It was a great showing and we kept the kids engaged the entire time, I saw more than a few kids heading to checkout with new Star Wars books...


Thank you to:
Barnes & Noble
DK Publishing
Lawrence Tetewski - Jedi
Janice Mergenhagen - Emperor Palpatine & Han Solo
Dan Malcolm - Snowtrooper
Bill Breindel - Jedi recruit for Echo base
Norma and Kathleen from the North Ridge FanForce for running the craft tables and keeping the kids entertained.

Without all of the hard work of everyone involved this event could not have been possible. It's really great to see all three groups work together and get such good results. The store is already looking forward to doing this again next year with us!
