Pottery Barn Kids South Coast Plaza Event

Today, R2-D2 joined Star Wars Characters for another event at The Pottery Barn Kids, in conjunction with their $15,600 donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Like last week, R2 was accompanied by Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, a Jedi Knight and a Rebel Pilot.

While we were anticipating as many as 1,200 visitors, I'd say between 500-600 people came through the store between the event running time of 10:00am-12:00pm. The line went down the mall and around the corner.

The folks just kept on coming.

Fellow R2 Builders Matthew Henricks and David Annetta dropped by to visit.

The most interesting part? After the event, we grabbed some lunch next door at The Corner Bakery restaurant. A couple of kids asked us for our autographs! I signed for R2-D2. "Beep Boop! R2-D2"

Another enjoyable event.
