The 501st Legion, Rebel Legion, and Minnesota Force had the honor of attending the Make-A-Wish launch party for David, who will be going to Disney World for Jedi training! He had a rally at his school, and we got to meet a bunch of his classmates and friends. It was so much fun! We hope David has an awesome time at Disney World!

We’re Halfway There!

Thanks to all of the generous donors, we are over halfway to our fundraising goal for purchasing Han Solo in Carbonite and making improvements to the Mos Icee Cantina!

Ashley Eckstein Book Signing

On May 12th, members of the 501st Legion, Rebel Legion, Minnesota Force, and Galactic Academy attended the book signing for Ashley Eckstein‘s new book, It’s Your Universe: You Have the Power to Make it Happen at Barnes & Noble at the Har Mar Mall in Roseville. We had the opportunity to chat with her for a while, and she took time to sign our books and memorabilia and pose for photos with us. She is as kind and wonderful as you would expect!

You can purchase a copy of her book here, or wherever books are sold. She will be back in the Twin Cities on May 30th at Hot Topic at the Mall of America.

Han Solo Fundraiser!

One of the members of the Minnesota Force is moving to a smaller home and is selling some of his Star Wars collectibles. One of those items is a full-size Han Solo in Carbonite, and the Minnesota Force is raising funds to purchase this amazing prop! Our plan is to display it at the Mos Icee Cantina (our party room at CONvergence) and potentially display it at other events.

If you have a few dollars to spare, please donate to our fundraiser! All money will go toward “adopting” Han and improving the Mos Icee Cantina to make it more fun for all of our visitors! Our goal is $700.00.

Please note that the PayPal account is for Costumers for a Cause, our partner non-profit organization. However, all funds for this fundraiser will go to the Minnesota Force.
