Hi all....


Last year I costumed an event in the northern suburbs of Chicago called "Peds in the Weeds". It is a pic nic for pediatric Cancer patients of Lutheran General Hospital.


Below is some information from one of our Midwest Garrison members who is the organizer of our appearance there.


NOTE......THERE HAS BEEN A DATE CHANGE!!__________________________________________________________________________


"I was just informed that this event is going to be on Sunday August 13th this year. This event kicked off at 11:00 am or noon last year.
Many of you that participated last year know this event is sponsored by Lutheran General Hospital. This event is for Children that are suffering from Cancer and for survivors. My cousin Joey was 14 years old when they found that he had cancer on his spinal cord. Joey is a survivor. He is now in his twenties and a Student at UIC. Every year my family volunteers at this event by donating the large white tents that are set up by them for this large event.
I am asking again for anyone that wants to dress up for this event with me. All food and beverage are provided with a tent that my family has set aside for them and the 501ST Midwest Garrison volunteers.
We will only be needed for a few hours to play and take pictures with the kids. After that we could change and enjoy the rest of the event! My uncle Manuel already said that the kegs and food will be ready to go!
There are carnival games set up, a train ride and a DJ. This takes place in a Forest Preserve on the far North Side in Skokie just off of 290 at Dempster. This is only a short distance from Rosemont where the Wizard World will be taking place that same weekend!!
Again this is a large event and everything to include food, beverage and gifts for the kids and their families are all donated.
I am going to donate several hundred dollars in the name of the 501ST Legion Midwest Garrison to the foundation for this event.
So who wants to do the Electric Slide with me and the kids in our Imperial and Jedi outfits? Anyone? Directions to follow when this event "

If anyone is interested....please post your availability....

Hey all-


Yes it is I... I was planning on going as Ani, as I mentioned on the 501st boards but not sure if Joe7049, still checks the boards over there. I'm pretty flexible,  the joy of having 2 costumes... Smile
