I'm awaiting a phone call back from Louis at Frank& Son's for this event, however he says that having a table there on Wednesday the 19th shouldn't be a problem. Once I have the date solidified, I'll invite the other clubs.

This event will be to raise funds for the Red Cross.

Here is the website for Frank & Son's, for location and directions info:

This is on a Wednesday; be there well before 5pm for table setup, etc. I'll have the Coruscant Temple banner there, as well as table props, etc.

Seeya there!

Our table is now confirmed for December 19th at Frank & Son's. I'll be sending invites to all local Star Wars clubs to join us during the next couple of days. See website in my post above for location and directions.

Be sure to be there well before 5pm, preferably around 4pm, for setup.

They'll be putting us in the back, unfortunately, but I'm not complaining - it's free. So... I'd like to get as many costumers as possible to attract attention.

We're working on a little project called "Feed the Holocron" to help get donations flowing; details on that coming soon.

Remember, this is to benefit the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief. There are a LOT of people in New York and New Jersey that are still without basic necessities, including power and potable water. Be sure to tell your friends! Our goal for this event is at least $500. Of course, we'd like to do more, perhaps even a thousand bucks. Let's see what we can do!

Thanks, Jaden.

Other Coruscant Temple members that can troop this, please post here.

Because we will have a table in the back, I'm thinking our "Feed the Holocron" activity (details coming soon) and possibly the Sith Inquisition activity will be in order. I can't wait to inquisit another Merc! Twisted Evil



UPDATED TIMES:

The venue is open from 3pm to 9pm on Wednesdays. I will therefore be arriving at approximately 2pm for setup. Please be there as close to 2pm, or as early as you can possibly make it. We'll be there until 9pm, with break-down at approximately 8:45pm.




TDE INVITATION SENT TO OTHER CLUBS:



Grrrreetings!!

The Dark Empire costume club, Coruscant Temple, will be present at Frank & Son's in the City of Industry, California, on Wednesday, December 19th, conducting a fundraising troop for the Red Cross, for Hurricane Sandy relief. We will have a table, in the back, complete with banner and props.

Our club policy is to invite other STAR WARS clubs to charity troops that we coordinate, and we'd be honored for your club (501st, Rebel Legion, The Jedi Assembly, Saber Guild, Mandalorian Mercs, Fanforce, R2 Builders, etc) to represent alongside. Please feel free to send as many members as possible. Please let me know if you have a "face-character," such as a Vader or a Fett, that is interested ahead of time, please, via Facebook or email.

The website for the venue, including address and driving instructions, is: [Only admins are allowed to see this link]

Our goal is to raise as much money as possible for the Red Cross. We will have a "Feed the Holocron" concept going, in which persons wishing a photograph with costumers will be encouraged to donate any amount into a Sith Holocron on our table (or Red Cross bucket with a holocron nearby, etc).

We may also conduct our new Sith Inquisition activity, as described on our website, which works much like the "bounty" activity done by our sister club, the Mandalorian Mercs. I personally am looking forward to possibly "inquisiting" one of them again! I'll also be recording at the event for Dark Empire Radio; I'd be more than happy to have anyone on there that would like to sound-off a "hello" to the listeners and say who they are, what club they're in, etc. DER has become an interactive podcast for all of our clubs; I'm proud to say we have listeners in just about every fan group.

I'll be getting there on Wednesday the 19th at about 2pm for setup. The show starts at 3pm and goes until 9pm (we'll break down at about 8:45, so they can close on time).

Please RSVP and let me know how many members you think might be coming - the more, the better! Any STAR WARS costume is fine, just let me know ahead of time regarding any face characters you may have wanting to troop this. Please feel free also to ask me any question you might have. Parking is and admission are free, of course. Weapon props and buckets (helmets / masks) are completely fine. I'd really like to have an astromech there, for sure.

Hope to see you there!


All the best,

Joe "Lord Bruticus" Mignano TDE-021

I should be able to attend provided work does not screw up my schedule again. Are we planning to have a raffle or anything at all? I just recent made use of my rewards points from Ultra Sabers and ordered two grab bags that just came in today. And would love to donate them for the cause.

The Sabers are UltraSabers' Aeon V2 and Dominix LE V2 both have a Blue LED

Let me know

That is an excellent idea! I still have a large roll of red raffle tickets, if you can bring your tumbler, Jaden.

Even if all we have to raffle off is a saber or two, it'll be worth it! Jaden, I'll need you to make another sign, I think... Twisted Evil

EVENT UPDATE

The charity that this event will benefit has been changed from the Red Cross to the Little Warrior International Fund, a charity that was created by our sister club The Mandalorian Mercs. Our Sith'ari has conferred with Mand'alor Tom Hutchens, and TDE is honored to assist them in this endeavor.

Proceeds from that fund are going to specifically be used to benefit families and victims involved in the terrible school shootings yesterday in Connecticut.

Direct Donations to that fund can also be made on the Mercs website (linked on our website), and on the front page of [Only admins are allowed to see this link]

As of this writing, the goal of $1,700 is nearly one-third achieved, in less than one day.

Giving this thread a bump -- this event is this coming Wednesday.

I'll be there at 2pm for setup; members trooping this PLEASE get there as close to 2pm as you possibly can, unless you are unable to do so (due to job, etc).

Jaden Korr and I will be setting up table props, raffle tumbler, signage, etc.

Since we are tentatively in the back (they might move us at the last moment, but not holding my breath on that), we will need as many costumers as possible to attract attention to the table and raffle area. If you have friends in the other groups, please feel free to invite them; this event is open (as is our charity trooping policy) to all fan groups that would like to assist.

Remember, this has changed from being a Red Cross event, to Little Warrior International (the charity of our sister club, the Mercs), raising funds for Sandy Hook elementary shooting victims / families. It will supplement the fundraiser currently ongoing on our website. TDE is honored to assist the Mercs with this project.

See y'all there Wednesday.

UPDATE:

Tom Hutchens, the founder and CO of our sister club, the Mercs, sent me this following message privately on Facebook. Once again, GREAT job to all that participate!

-------------------------------------

Hey Joe,

I just want to send out a big THANK YOU for stepping up and helping Mercs with this. This is the best thing we can do to support these families in the short-term. I will make sure that what letter/information goes out with these donations includes TDE.

Happy Holidays,
Tom
