Combat Radio's Breakfast with Santa 2017

Today R2 and I participated in our 7th straight Combat Radio Breakfast with Santa charitable event, along with fellow R2 Builders Paul Thompson and Gene Arena. Gordon Tarpley joined us as C-3PO, and there were dozens of costumers from just about every genre out there. This all event benefits homeless children and families, and gives them an opportunity to have an excellent meal, meet tons of characters, and get a present from Santa himself! Dawn and Kathryn McMaster also joined us, as did Natalie Tarpley.

We all arrived between 6:00am and 6:30am to set up. Both Paul and Gene brought donuts!

Funds are raised by auctioning dozens of autographed posters, artwork, and other memorabilia.

Gene and Paul had their droids outside to greet the guests as they lined up to get in the restaurant.

C-3PO and my R2-D2 were there to greet them once they entered.

The event itself was recorded for future broadcast.

Finally, the kids got to line up to meet Santa, and every one got a gift!

Everyone had a great time, and I'm sure we'll be invited back next year.

The full photoset is here.
