TAT-cover-3

Event Name: Touch-A-Truck for Max’s Ring of Fire
Event Date: 06/08/2013
Point of Contact: Jennifer B.

Event Rundown: Members of four costuming clubs and two countries, including 11 501st troopers, participated in the 5th Annual San Diego Touch A Truck to raise funds for childhood cancer. Touch a Truck is a car show for kids – or the kid in you – where all the vehicles are open to climb in and honk the horn. They had Harleys, classic cars, Humvees, big rigs and more! Touch A Truck San Diego is inspired by Max Mikulak who battled cancer for 4 years, before passing away at the tender age of 7. He loved everything on wheels, but more importantly was a HUGE Star Wars fan.This event was an astounding success, raising $63,000 for juvenile cancer research!

Event Name: Princess Leah Philanthropy Ceremony
Event Date: 05/23/2013
Point of Contact: Anthony T.

Event Rundown: The Phi-Sigma-Rho sorority at UC Irvine invited us out for their Yavin-inspired awards ceremony for members and campus organizations that participated in competitions during the day-long philanthropy event aimed at raising money for Princess Leah. We took a lot of photos with campus tour guides-in-training as they were passing by.

A little over 50 members from various sororities and fraternities on campus came out to the event, and the small lecture hall felt packed! We stood by and cheered and clapped for the representatives from each organization as they came up to receive their trophies and certificates for out-fundraising their peers.

Leah’s parents Zev and Frani also came by to talk about their daughter Leah, and to thank the attendees for their care and support. We all got to meet their 4 month old guide dog in training Roxy too!
