Comments: The event is basically a media campaign to raise money and awarness for Ruths Cottage and The Pattycake House. These shelters, whose functions are to provide safety and care to abused women and children, are in desperate need of help. Being local, very little federal funding, our board of directors have planned a march around our downtown area to draw attention and raise money for these very deserving people. The idea first came to mind when I was sharing some photos from this years DragonCon. Of course children love the world of star wars as much as any die hard fan. The films message is timeless! I LOVE seeing their eyes light up when they see one of their favorite characters. It just melts your heart. We are currently securing our own star wars themed costumes for the march. Other ideas for more entertainers or additional characters were brought up. That's when I remembered the 501st. As an avid fan, I think I bugged everyone at the event for pictures!
. It was the first time I had heard of your organization. At one point I talked in length to a couple of members (just really great people) and I expressed a wanting to join or form a regement of our own. I so much identify with your organization. Which brings me back to our event. I'm really not sure if a smaller event like this warrents an appearance by the 501, but after talking to your members I thought that asking would not hurt. I'm hoping that we can have you guys involved. Several members of our organization are tied into media networks at many levels from Sports South to local networks and news. The one thing I can promise is a HUGE media blitz for our organization and the 501st! The march is tentatively set for Oct 3rd but if there is ANY way that we might be able to get a few of you guys onboard, I can no doubt push the date back some. I truely hope that we can count on the 501st. I can guarantee that the good will and publicity will benefit your organization massively! Again I thank you for your consideration and for your continued service to the public. I imagine arangements can be made for boarding and meals as well.

Let me know if anyone can help out with this.

Beth

Not yet, once I get an idea of how many can participate I'll get the details nailed down.
