On November 27, 2010, members of the Dune Sea Garrison, and the R2 Builder’s Club had the opportunity to work with Lucasfilm, Ltd., Cartoon Network, and the Phoenix Coyotes in the recent Coyotes vs. Anaheim Ducks game at Jobing.com Arena to celebrate Star Wars: The Clone Wars, now in its third season on Cartoon Network.
The evening featured several family-friendly activities, including the opportunity for fans to meet clone troopers and take pictures against a special Star Wars: The Clone Wars backdrop. There were many Star Wars: The Clone Wars prizes and other fun giveaways, including Hasbro’s General Grievous Light saber. Fans were encouraged to join in by dressing up as their favorite Star Wars character.
In appreciation for participating, the event organizers made a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the name of the 501st Legion, Dune Sea Garrison in the amount of $750.00.
Many thanks to everyone that attended to make the event a success!
