Charity Fundraiser

This evening R2 wrapped up his 3-event triple-header with a visit to TGIFriday's, in Westminster, CA. They were celebrating Star Wars day with a charitable fundraiser. Twenty percent of the day's proceeds were being donated to Ronald McDonald Charities, where they help kids with cancer go to camp, among other good causes.

I was joined by Margo Apostlos, who played an Ewok in Return of the Jedi. She was presented with a big thank-you cake, and it was good!

People lined up for pictures with R2 as soon as I arrived.

The restaurant staff really got into it, decorating the whole restaurant, and dressing up.

R2 annoyed this couple, that were trying to enjoy a quiet evening. But they're used to it, being my parents and all.

It was quite a successful fundraiser, and everyone enjoyed themselves.
