R2 returned to Canoga Park Bowl for the International Child Abuse Network's fundraiser to help fight child abuse and promote prevention education.
Folks paid $15.00 for lunch and two games of bowling. All proceeds went towards the charity.
Attendees also bid on auctioned items, and participated in a raffle.
The stars of the show were the characters, of course. We had a good representation, with Chewie, Boushh, Ewoks, a Jawa, three stormtroopers, a TIE pilot, a Royal Guard, and of course Darth Vader, joining R2.
I was planning to have R2 sit this year out when it came to bowling, but he gave it a shot, by popular demand.
He should have stayed off the lanes. Six tries, six gutter balls. Frankly, I'm amazed they even let us do this!
The Stormtroopers had much better luck.
A lot of money was raised once again this year, and I imagine R2 will be back next year, with or without his bowling shoes.
