    I got a lot of info:

    The address:
    Ronald McDonald House
    824 Children's Way Across from Nemoirs Hosp. 807-4663
    They have bottled water and a water cooler.
    There is a pretty good sized dayroom with a bathroom in it to change in and out of our costumes.
    They already have cupcakes, treats ect.. always available.
    They are printing flyers about this event to get the word out to families and staff.
    One of the staff is bringing her husband and son who love SW.
    The night manager will be taking pictures of us with the kids. Some of the kids have their own cameras.
    We can just mingle with kids or sit in the dining area, so we don't have to just stand around.
    I'd suggest getting their @6:30pm to change.
    Everyone is looking forward to meeting us!
    Thanks everybody!

    Sounds like fun, I'll either be in Stormtrooper or Officer. I may be a bit late as I usually don't get off of work until 7:00.

    Arthur and Luis...So glad you make it![face_dancing]
    I'm gonna post this on the 501st. I just read @ Katie passing away on the 501st boards. Someone mentioned @ doing a RMH event, so we might get some participation from them.

    Katie passed away? That is so sad . . . all of the work that the 501st did for her and her family was wonderful.

    Emails are flooding the 501st site. Very sad day. Helmets off, knees bowed.

    Katie's death, while expected, has cut to the core of the entire 501st. In a prefect world children like Katie and the kids that we will be seeing at the Ronald McDonald house would not be facing death or painful medical procedures.
    The Florida Garrison is currently taking up a collection for the Make-A-Wish foundation per Albin's (Katie's father and founder of the 501st) request. If you are interested in donating, please go to either the garrison website or feel free to contact me.

    On another note, what is their policy reguarding weapons. Some hospitals do not like having guns of any sort on the premises, even costume props. One of the hospitals the 501st/RL visits does not even want lightsabers there. Could we find out the answers to these questions?
    Also, please remember that some of these children may have developed latex allergies thus no masks made of that nor balloons. A general hospital rule is also no strong perfumes as they can set off some allergies as well.

    and older people in nursing homes & hospitols
    is a great thing for us all to do -
    giving of our time to help others is what --we -- are about .
    thanks for putting this event together-

    Weapon props are fine.
    I gave the event coordinator our website. She needed some pics for flyers. I'm gonna try and send her a pic of us.

    Katie is a radiant and beautiful soul who will always be in our hearts. She touched and even changed a lot of lives. Please read some of the messages on the 501st
    boards.

    Yikes, hope it's not too confusing having two RMH threads. This is the up to date one.
    I had a long day at school, I E-mailed RMH about the music idea and giving out the BK toys. I'll let you know ASAP.

    From the RMH event coordinator:
    >>Marching out sounds very theatrical!! The children will love it. The BK toys will be just fine. I just hope we have a house full of children that night.
    This is going to be alot of fun. Thank you and your group for giving of your time.

    Anyone already Padme in Picnic Gown from EpII for RMH event? I just scored a costume from a girl as small as me, but it is Blue instead of yellow. Won't wear it if someone is already her. (Besides, not sure how long shipping is going to take to get to me anyway). Pretty sure you can count me and my husband in - He manages a "Moe's" and will try and get off work for it.

    I just acquired a sandtrooper costume, but I need some accessories for it before I can wear it. If I can get it together in time, I'll be there in costume. Otherwise, I'll be there in a t-shirt and jeans.

    I'm SO bummed. Costume (Picnic Padme or Battle Padme) won't make it in time for the event Friday, but will arrive the following week. We will be there anyway. If anyone has extra's that they just want someone to wear for the kids either of us are willing, we just don't have anything yet. We will come regardless. Got my Dad to be a sitter for our 2 babies (a SUPER rare event-like once every 6 mos for ANYONE to watch them). Figured we shouldn't bring our rugrats...they are a handful.

    See everyone there. Can't wait to meet the crew.
