MSABC Donation Station - ALGONQUIN, IL 9/25/10

EVENT: MSABC Donation Station - Algonquin, IL

DATE: Saturday, September 25, 2010
10:00am - 1:00pm

EVENT COORDINATOR: Cheryl "Whinter" Whitaker

Fantastic Troop!! Great weather! Fantastic Team!

We set up our "MSABC Donation Station" and suited up at the Jewel/Osco on Randall Road in Algonquin, IL just before 10:00 am.


Image

Neil's wife, Andrea, was our HERO and a HUGE help at the event. She stepped in last minute and did an absolutely fantastic job with running the table AND being our costume support! She even got in on the fun and wore Princess Leia "buns"!

Image

Neil was in his Stormtrooper and his son, Gehrig, was in his Jawa; af fantastic team, as always.

Another last minute addition to our event was our soon to be MWG "newbie" Vader, John (jweger77). He did a terrific job and will make a great addition to the Garrison. He stayed up until 4:30 this morning, trying to get a few things finished up before his big debut. Great job, John!


Image

And Neil was happy to know that he wasn't going to have to worry about being taller than Vader; John is 6'8" (7' in costume). :wink:

And where did that leave me? VERY vertically challenged!
:lol:

Image

My neice, Hailey, was also a big help with everything. She was my little photographer, as well as costume support and helped Andrea at the table. She also helped me with making the posters and the chocolate we gave out as a thank you to those who donated. I foresee a great for her in the 501st. (but she has another 8 years before that can happen) :wink:

Image

Image

So, the total today........... An outstanding $232.00!!! [smilie=yahoovk3.gif]

$49.00 of that came from Phyllis's Jedi Costume Raffle!!!! AWESOME!

We also collected TWO donations from Jewel patrons that were $25 each, and will each receive a personalized 501st/RL Team Armband in Honor of their loved ones that have been affected by Breast Cancer. I already gave the information to Phyllis and she is making them tomorrow for us to wear at the MSABC walk on 10/17 in Aurora.


Image

I guess it's time to schedule the date for next year's Donation Station. I had to schedule this one at the Jewel about 6 months ago to get this date! Great spot to do this. Anyone ready to sign up for next year's station? :P

OHMIGOD!

You guys did AWESOME!

We will have to get Andrea to make a costume to go with those buns...
I have a pattern....
:wink:

Neil and Gehrig....awesome as always!

and...our new Vader...
WOW....he will be a GREAT addition!

BTW....Cheryl...the pink of the flightsuit looks fine.....
just pink enough!


Thank you to the entire team!

I can only hope we do half as well at the Mokena Donation Station this coming Saturday...

I have also been making homemade jams and jellies (combinations and fruit you can't buy in a store) to raffle off at the Will County Master Gardener's Pot Luck on Tuesday...
I usually do pretty well...the Master Gardeners are very generous...

Our team is kicking butt....and taking names!

Maybe this year we can fend off the last minute surge from "Theresa's Trotters" team....lol..

Regardless of final outcome...
we have done ourselves very proud...
Everyone has done a fantastic job for a fantastic charity!

Thanks again to both Cheryl and Neil for getting me off my butt to get things pretty well wrapped up on the Vader. Now that I've had a chance to look at some pics, I can see a few things I need to address...mostly placement of things; including the chest box which seemed to be wonky in every pic almost! Good thing is that most of it is minor...though the cod is a little too tall and I can see I need to cut it down some more. Always more to do, but I had an excellent time and a lot of fun.

I will certainly be back for more and just need to wrap up a few things and send those submission pics in. It's been a long road on this one...especially since the majority of everything was self made. I have a great appreciation for the time and effort which everyone puts in to their armor and costumes. Anyways, get those pics up Neil and thanks again!

Here's one to add that was taken by some friends who stopped by..
