We were asked early on in the planning of this one to help out. I spent many nights working with the Marigold Festival committee on helping plan our involvement on the festival. It was a lot of hard work for everyone involved but the results were well worth it! We escorted the Star Wars guests of honor Tom Kane and Daniel Logan during the Parade on Saturday morning. The crowd cheered as the massive amount of Star Wars characters walked along the parade route. Saturday afternoon we spent posing for pictures, we setup the Star wars academy game for the youngling to enjoy while raising $101.38 for Childrens hospital of Illinois(CHOI), We also help a fine young man propose to his girlfriend with the help of Tome Kane as the voice of Yoda! On Sunday morning the festivities continued starting with the Celebrity guests Q&A with the Help of Jimmy Mac of the Forcecast.net podcast. We spent Sunday afternoon posing for pictures and running the game Blast-A-Trooper where we raised another $66 for CHOI. Both days were rain free although just a little too warm for comfort, but that did not stop us from having fun and putting smiles on the faces of those in attendance. I have been informed that the Marigold festival Committee added to our total raised to CHOI, the total now comes to $2700! THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this event the success it was, it would not have happened without YOU! We currently have members working on an in character presentation of this check. looks like January 16th is the day we are blasting for, MWG members keep an eye on the planning section for more details when they are available.
