Calling all L.A.-area Star Wars fans
Written by Robert Niles
I know this isn't specifically theme park related, but many TPI readers are Star Wars fans, or at least parents, so I'd like to invite you to join me at a fun event this Saturday night in Pasadena.Tweet
It's called "McKinley Goes to the Movies" and it is a silent auction in support of arts education programs at McKinley School, a public K-8 school in Pasadena. (Yep, my kids go there.)
The evening has a Star Wars theme and will feature appearances by Darth Vader, R2D2, Boba Fett and other characters. And several Star Wars-related items will be up for bid, including a Princess Leia wig donated by Carrie Fisher. Here's a partial list of the items available. (I've donated, on behalf of TPI, a collectible Darth Vader watch and helmet from last year's Star Wars Weekends at Disney-MGM Studios.)
The event runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $25 at the door for adults, $15 for kids. There's plenty of food included with the admission, too. The school is located at 325 South Oak Knoll Ave. in Pasadena. (Once you get there, you might recognize it, as it has been used in filming for Boston Public, the X Files, Legally Blonde, Arrested Development and Without a Trace as well as the upcoming Adam Sandler flick. Heck, it sees more studio action than Disney-MGM ever did....)
Hope to see you there. It's a great school with great kids who certainly would appreciate your support.
