Children’s Therapy Center Auction

Original report by: Crystal von Oy, Alpha Base From speech therapy, to hydro and physical therapy and many other therapies in between, the Children’s Therapy Center has been somewhere Alpha Base has supported for many years. http://www.dynamicpartners.org/childrens-therapy-center On Saturday, March 23rd, 2013 Alpha Base and Garrison Titan participated in an Auction for Children’s Therapy Center in Kent, Washington. Well, rather, we were IN the auction, as an “item”. We raised $350 that all goes to the CTC and later this summer, we will appear at a child’s Star Wars themed birthday party for the winner. We also were able to present our earnings from our Emerald City Comicon event that totaled just over $6100.00. We were able to present the CTC with the cashier’s check to many smiles and applause. Overall a really awesome night! Report Content Issue: * Blank Page Invalid Contents Broken Links Other Your Name: * Details: * Submit...

Children’s Miracle Network Miracle Party

Original report by: Tim Levan, Echo Base On March 18, Echo Base and Garrison Carida once again answered the call to provided a bunch of very special young people a fun day they will never forget. The Miracle Party is an annual event conducted by the Children’s Miracle Network of Central Pennsylvania. It quite simply is a day for these kids, and their families, to put aside their struggles and challenges and just have fun and be treated like celebrities. They get to participate in carnival games complete with stuffed animal prizes which were donated from the AHL Hershey Bears Hockey Club, enjoy free popcorn and cotton candy, plus each child is presented with a gift donated by the York Harley Davidson Association. Oh and they get a fully catered lunch as well. Unfortunately the party is scheduled on a weekday making it difficult for many members of both groups to participate due to their work schedules, but despite that it always seem, somehow, members always answer the call and staff a full contingent of characters. Which, in my eyes is why we are who we are. The mission at this event is to basically hang out and look cool, do our usual meet and greet and Photo Ops. We stand at parade rest at the front of the banquet hall while the kiddos get called up one at a time to receive their gifts. Then everyone eats lunch, which gives us a chance to rest up in preparation for the big show, A Star Wars Dance a Thon with all of the miracle kids and their families. The kids have a great time and the parents all line up with their personal recording devices and it looks a little like a mob of paparazzi when we get jammin’. We had a great group of characters and this year, Garrison Carida was humbled by the awesome duo of R2-D2 and C-3PO; joining Chewbacca who is always a big hit at the party. The squires did great taking pics and making sure we didn’t step on any of the kiddos who were just running around having a great time. I’m really looking forward to the pics that Becky and Patti took. It was also great that Jonas Commero took the day off school to help out as well. Our event host Sue Deaven was very grateful for our continued enthusiastic support and provided event t-shirts to everyone as a thank you. From what I heard from Carida, that there is a very good chance this will be the last year for this event as CMN looks to go a different...

Sinai Hospital: Cancer-free Party

Original report by: Charles Wright, Terrapin Base The March 9th event was to both celebrate Ian Silver’s being diagnosed Leukemia free and to raise money to benefit Sinai Hospital of Baltimore who treated him. The event was hosted at Ripkin Stadium in Aberdeen Maryland. We arrived at 12 Noon to suit up and stayed in the changing area as we were a HUGE surprise to everybody except the parents. We came out on cue and after quick pictures I came to the podium and did a short speech about how the Jedi Council sends Padawans on Trials to test them, and how some life experiences can be substituted for the Trials such as in the case of Anakin and Obi-Wan, and in the case of the two boys. We presented them with Jedi Robes and did the traditional Jedi Knighting Ceremony. We then moved to a place set aside for our pictures and posed for kids and adults. After a time we moved about the crowd, mingling. Rex did a little dancing on the dance floor and we headed back to change. Thanks to these members for helping: Terrapin Base: Eric Grubb – Rebel Fleet Trooper Jenna – Princess Leia Dave Turnbull – Han Solo Charles Wright – Obi Wan Tony Federici – Anakin Skywalker Old Line Garrison: TK6441 Anthony Ambrose – Stormtrooper Commander BH10077 Hank Askin – Jango Fett TK0897 Adam Baker-Siroty – Squire SL1346 Rob Davis – Darth Vader TK1153 Geoff Hagerich – Stormtrooper IC386 Charlie Mann – Imperial Officer TR2101 Allen Shepherd – Imperial Guard TC9529 Emily Zalewski – Captain Rex Report Content Issue: * Blank Page Invalid Contents Broken Links Other Your Name: * Details: * Submit...
