Clone Wars Make-a-Wish Event

This evening we gave another go at drumming up enthusiasm and fundraising for Make-a-Wish at the Regal theater in Fashion Island, Newport Beach, CA. Lots of costumed characters appeared, including Darth Vader, Boba Fett, many Clone Troopers, a Tusken Raider, and Obi-Wan, among others. Chris Romines brought R2-A1, and Vince Sanchez brought R5-D4, to join my R2-D2.

We spent some time in the lobby, but most of the time was spent outdoors in front of the theater.

The droids paid a visit to the window of this curious kid at the Red Robin restaurant, adjacent to the theater.

Toward the end of the evening, the droid builders posed with their creations.

Best of all, we got to see the movie for free after we were done. R2 enjoyed it, especially when his friend R2-KT made a cameo.
