The 501st Stormtrooper Legion made its donation to the American Red Cross on Friday, Sept. 16th of the money collected at Dragon*Con 2005. Red Cross Troopers raised an amazing $4005.01 to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Their gift was well accepted and appreciated.
On behalf of the 501st, Floyd Grimm (TK9907, Georgia Garrison) stated, “I want to thank you for your support and allowing us, on a moments notice, to start this fundraising event. It was quite an experience for myself and Jeremy Reeves, to meet and touch the lives of every donator and help the families in need.
If ever you require the assistance of the Empire, please feel free to call upon the 501st. We are always willing to help in charitable affairs and love to make people smile and re-live the Star Wars experience.”
Accepting Donations is Major Gift Officer Kathy Klatt. Trooper on the left is Gerald Healey, trooper on the right is Jeremy Reeves, and Floyd Grimm as Darth Vader.
Long live the Empire!
