Ya know, we really need a place to report this stuff, but here goes!

The Sunrider Base of Rebel Legion and the Southern California Garrison of the 501st went out on Sunday October 7th on a joint mission at the Sony Motion Picture Studios to do a fundraising benefit for the Los Angeles Westside Childrens Center. This event was organized by Scott Rogers, of the Sunrider Base and Southern California Garrison!

Almost 50 costumers came out for the day including Princess Leia (Marie Prestin), Han Solo (Chris Evans), a RFT Squad (Donna Keeley, Lori Procopio, Don Trim, Rachel Williams), Endor Trooper (Lloyd Mirafuentes), Anakin (Liane Reznick, Dan Wolsey, Bryan Wynn), Luke Skywalker (Lawrence Green), Obi Wan Kenobi (Shawn Crosby), Hazard Squadron Pilots (Jon Paulson, Stephen Campbell, Rob Howes, Gregor Sink), R2D2 with his controller Mike Senna and two Ewok Escorts, R5 with his Imperial controller/RL escort (Vince Sanchez) and more:

Also from our Imperial brothers and sisters, Royal Guards (Jay, and Lesley Farquhar), Biker Scouts (Cris Knight and Gabriel Biffath), Tie Pilot (Kim Knight), Stormtroopers (Edgar Gallego, Mike Prestin, Tom Brink, Felixx, Dan Robinson, Andrea Hernandez, David Biffath, Roger Noe) Sandroopers (Tom, and 1 other), Mandalorian bounty hunter (Brett Dennis), Clones/Commandos (Sean Thompson and Andrew Page).

Working together, these folks entertained close to 400 kids throughout the day with pictures, high-fives, handshakes, and other activities, along with those provided by the Center.

Check out the pictures here:

and specifically the dual club group picture:

The kids really enjoyed our presence and loved playing along with all of our folks. In addition, the folks at Sony Events were most impressed with both groups and our enthusiam for the event and the exceptional professionalism exhibited by all the participants and are sharing our information with other charities they work with in the Southern California area.

You see folks, we really can all share the galactic sandbox.

GREAT JOB EVERYONE!

Lesley;

I had a great time with everyone, just one point. My name is Donald Trim and my Jedi name is Zhi-don Aquintas. However, Don Aquintas is pretty cool and I may use it sometime in the future. Wink

Great one, Don! ROTF Ewok Speaking of Ewoks, do you remember how excited I got about taking a picture w/ them at the group photo and then they told me that I was too tall to be in that picture w/ them? Sad Laughing Great times! Looking forward to the next one.

ps. Thanks for adding me to that list up there, Lesley & for everything else too. Smile

It's great to see RL and 501st from the same area get along so well. I wish I could say the same. Sad

They are, and the crowds just love them anytime they come along. They are Mike and Amy Senna's two children (SO Cal Garrison). You should see the cooling getup they have to wear under all that fur!
