Hey, GLB, just forwarding along an invite for an event in Ft Wayne in a couple weeks if folks were interested in making the journey if you're close.

Event Name: The Salvation Army 10th Annual Fall Fundraiser

Venue address: 2901 N Clinton Street
Fort Wayne, Indiana 46805

Event Start: 9/21/18 - 6:30pm-10 EST
Event End: 9/22/118 - 10-2pm EST
Event Website:
Expected number of attendees: 800
Requested number of characters: NA

Comments: The Salvation Army's 10th annual Fall fundraiser is Star Wars themed. The entire building (over 133,000 square feet) and parking lot (over 30,000 square feet) are converted to match the theme. This event has raised up to $140,000 in the past. All proceeds go to benefit those in need in the community. The Salvation Army does not discriminate when serving our
neighbors who are struggling.

This is a two day event. Sept 21 and 22nd. The 21st is an evening event from 6pm-10ish, and the 22nd from 10-2pm. Each day has a different theme and activities. The 21st is a dinner banquet, food and beverages (alcoholic as well) will be served within an atmosphere representing the casino scene from The Last Jedi. This will take place at The Orchid in New Haven, IN just outside of Fort Wayne. 11508 Lincoln Hwy E, New Haven, IN 46774

Volunteers will be provided a free meal! Costumes participants will be asked to mingle and take pictures, role play and interact with the guests.

After this event, the Salvation Army has invited us back to the SA headquarters in Fort Wayne (2901 N Clinton St, Fort Wayne, IN 46805-1909, United States) where the activities on the 22nd will take place, for free popcorn and drinks. The SA will be running vans from the SA headquarters in Fort Wayne to the Orchid for those of you that want to park your cars in Fort Wayne and not have to worry about driving. There will be room for tubs! They will drop the projection screen and show movies all night, provide big comfy cots to sleep on and bring in a crew to make us free homemade breakfast in the morning. We really want to see folks from out of town, make this a great excuse to see our brothers and sisters of StarWars and have time to enjoy each other’s company without the hassle and expense of finding hotel rooms and such.

The event on the 22nd is a complete immersive StarWars experience. Businesses and organizations, all local, are sponsoring areas that exhibit their products, knowledge/expertise and/or services. During this time, costumed guests will have 5 tickets to give to their family members, free! Also, their ticket stubs will grant free admission to FantasiCon (which is in Fort Wayne, just down the road, that Saturday and Sunday) The event is inside (with a/c) and outside, weather permitting. 90% of the proceeds goes right back to the community of NE Indiana to help end child sex trafficking (which is the fastest growing crime in NE Indiana) and the Charlotte Ministries, which helps premature babies.

Here's a sign up link on the Northern Darkness Garrison forums. I'd also pose any questions there instead of here, as it's not my event Smile :
