Hey everyone!
This one is near and dear to my heart. First and foremost, this is a fundraiser for childhood cancer. For those of you that don't know, our son Ian, was diangosed with a medulloblastoma (brain tumor) back in Feb. of 2009. He has been done with treatment for close to a year now, and last year he wanted to form a team....he even shaved the little hair that he did have at the time. The other reason is that this is where I was introduced to the 501st and Rebel Legion thanks to Jamie(over at the 501st)! This year is the 5th annual St. Baldrick's in Sioux Falls, and they are looking at reaching the $100,000 mark this year. It would be great to have a Star Wars presence, as "using the force" is what helped him get through this. After his 7 hour emergency surgery to remove his tumor, he had his hospital room covered with over 400 cards from his fellow schoolmates, and all of them were Star Wars! Smile
So here is the scoop.
Where: Pizza Ranch, 41st and Kiwanis, Sioux Falls SD
When: Wednesday, March 16th from roughly 5-9....not needed to stay the whole time.
Who: 501st, RL, Mandos, R2's, and anyone else I forgot.
Responsibilities: Photo Opps would be the main thing. Donation jar/helmet set up next to us for people to give to St. Baldricks. Anyone that wants to form a team and actually raise money and shave their hair, are MORE than welcome. Send me a PM and I will give you the details. Ian is having a team again this year, and I will again shave my head as well.
I know it is the middle of the week, but anyone that can make it, or help raise some money for St. Baldricks, would be great!!
Very Happy Very Happy

Facebook event has close to 100 attending, 100 maybe, and awaiting 600 replies....Season Tickets to the Sioux Falls Storm are going to be up for auction, as well as many other items, the CEO and regional president of Avera Hospitals is shaving his head, at least one, if not two television stations will be there.....this seems to be getting bigger and bigger, all for a great cause.

PLUS, I JUST SPOKE WITH THE NEW PRESIDENT OF MAKE-A-WISH, AND FOR EVERY VIDEO THAT THEY GET OF PEOPLE SHAVING THEIR HEADS, AND UPLOAD TO BIC, THEY MAY RECEIVE CLOSE TO $400 FOR EVERY HEAD!!!! IF WE GET EVEN 10 VIDEOS, THAT WILL BE $4 GRAND TO GO TO MAKE-A-WISH!!!!!!!!!

I know it is a middle of the week, but the day before St. Patrick's Day....road trip to Sunny South Dakota!!!! It's time to party for a good cause....Star Wars Style!!!
