This year marked our 11th year of working with ToyCon toy shows and appearing at their December charity show. Since 2004 we have been asked to attend this show and take photos with patrons at the toy show for a donation with the proceeds going to Children's Treasure Chest for Pediatric Oncology. Participants and all patrons coming to the show are also asked to bring new and unwrapped toys. We did a brisk business this year and collected $175.00 in donations for the photos taken.

Terry Mannix and the other organizers of this event are always grateful for our participation and feel that this charity show would not be the same without our presence there.

My thanks go to our participants:

For the 11th year in a row, member of the 501st Legion Midwest Garrison and the Rebel Legion were on hand to help collect toys & pose for photos for donations to charity. This show benefits Children's Treasure Chest for Pediatric Oncology and provides toys as a distraction for kids at the hospital for various treatments.
