    We did this one last year...

    Here's the information on the one for this year. (Borrowed from the invite on the 501st website).


    The month of September kicks a huge fund raising and awareness drive of St. Jude's Childrens Hospital at Chili's across the country. Each Chili's will be holding various events to raise funds to donate at the end of the month. Also on Sept. 25th, every Chili's (1500+) will donate 100% of their profits for the day to St. Judes.

    I'm a manager at the Chili's in Conway, AR. The Arkansas component will be gathering, along with a local SW costuming group ArkanSith (gotta have Jedi to pick on ) on September 13th to troop our store. We'll be doing photo ops, bucket-off donations. They'll be a photo in the local paper the morning of the event to kick things off.

    I would encourage you to contact your local Chili's to see what you can do for St. Judes. As we get pics taken and more things going, I'll be sure post updates. "


    With that said, the time frame is:
    starting around 5:30 pm- 6:00 pm until about 9:00 pm -ish.
    We had a great time last year, and were able to raise over $2,000.00 for St. Judes in three hours! A great cause and a LOT of fun! I would like to open an invitation to all my brothers and sisters here in Star Garrison.


    Directions can be provided.

    If you can make it, please post below.

    Thanks

    We'll be there, although we'll have to be spotters for those who are blinded by helmets. :D

    I was planning on coming to this...until I found out I actually have students for my sculpture class! It is from 7-9, so I may try to drop by before hand, but probably not in costume.

    Thanks to everyone who came out for this...

    We're planning some organizational changes for next year (assuming that we do it agian...and I'm sure we will unless John has a different job)...but, it was as successful as it could have been considering the circumstances...
