    Jul 12, 2008, 6:08 PM - Imperial Funland Event 2008 - Donations Needed! #1

    I am now accepting donations for our upcoming "Imperial Funland Event" in November of this year. The event is a 501st cannon event that will be held in Mandeville Louisiana. The event will be held at Funland in Mandeville, and will benefit three children in our local area that are suffering with Leukemia and a rare birth defect known as "Clover Head Syndrome". All proceeds from this event will go directly to the three children and their families to help with their medical expenses. I am looking for donations in the form of Star Wars stuff, as well as anything else that the members here are willing to donate for the raffle and auctions. If you would like to find out more about this event, you can visit the following website: http://www.imperialfunland.com

    If you would like to make a donation for this worthy cause, please PM me and I will give you my address to send the donations. Thanks!

    Rodney

    Hello fellow members,

    This is just a reminder that the “Imperial Funland Event” is only 35 days away. I have asked for donations from our members to help with this event. If anyone here is willing to donate for this worthy cause, please mail your items to my house at the following address:

    Rodney Grundmeyer
    69081 Third Avenue
    Covington, La. 70433

    I need to start tallying up the items and documenting what I have collected for this event. Since the event is a little over a month away, I am asking for everyone to send their donations by the end of this coming week. For those of you that can help with donations, your help is greatly appreciated. For those who can’t donate at this time, I understand your reasons for not donating and thank you for at least considering it. If anyone has any questions or comments, please e-mail me or give me a call at (985) 630-8746. Thanks again for your assistance in this matter.

    Sincerely,

    Rodney Grundmeyer
    Founder / Imperial Funland Event

    I'm sorry it took soo long to get back with you Stormrider. I have been pretty busy trying to organize this event. I planned on using this logo for the front left pocket of the t-shirt.



    And I planned on using this artwork on the back with a box below it with the sponsors information.



    The t-shirts are also going to be a charcoal grey in color.

    I love this shirt!! Will these be offered for sale??

    I am going to make some kind of child's costume. I was thinking along the lines of Young Anakin, but I have not completely decided yet.

    I will get busy on this soon.

    Anyone else???

    I got the t-shirts in yesterday. They look alright, but the images could have been a little larger. Too late to do anything about it now though.

    Well, I went to David Patten's (Wide Receiver for the New Orleans Saints) house this evening and picked up the autographed football. You can imagine my surprise when I noticed all of the autographs on it. I counted 28 autographs from 52 of the members on the team. That's over half of the football team... :D



    List of autographs on SAINTS football:

    1) # 9 – Drew Brees - QB
    2) # 10 – Skyler Green - WR
    3) # 11 – Mark Brunell - QB
    4) # 12 – Marques Colston - WR
    5) # 15 – Courtney Roby - WR
    6) # 23 – Pierre Thomas - RB
    7) # 27 – Aaron Stecker - RB
    8) # 28 – Usama Young - CB
    9) # 31 - Aaron Glenn - CB
    10) # 34 – Mike McKenzie - CB
    11) # 39 – Chris Reis - S
    12) # 42 – Jason David - CB
    13) # 44 – Mike Karney - FB
    14) # 51 – Jonathan Vilma - LB
    15) # 55 – Scott Fujita - LB
    16) # 56 – Jo-Lonn Dunbar - LB
    17) # 58 – Scott Shanle - LB
    18) # 66 – Brian Young - DT
    19) # 67 – Jamar Nesbit - G
    20) # 68 – Matt Lehr - C/G
    21) # 70 – Jammal Brown - T
    22) # 73 – Jahri Evans - G
    23) # 75 – Tim Duckworth - G
    24) # 77 – Carl Nicks - G/T
    25) # 88 – Jeremy Shockey - TE
    26) # 92 – Remi Ayondale - DT
    27) # 95 – Josh Savage - DE
    28) # 96 – Antwan Lake - DT

    You can also imagine my surprise when he gave me his jersey from the London trip and autographed it for me to include in the auction... :D

    Rodney,
    I sent the little Princess Leia dress and belt via USPS express mail and it should reach you on Saturday. I really hope it gets there on time.

    I am sorry that this was put off to the last minute! Many Many things going on with me.

    Thanks for coordinating this. I am very happy to help!

    I have added everyone who has made an individual donation to my Sponsors list on the IFE website. If I forgot anyone, please let me know. Keep in mind that the people on the list made individual donations of items for this event.

    Dear Friends & Family,

    Now that the “Imperial Funland Event” is over, I can finally take a breather and get ready for the next one. This year’s event was a great success, and we raised over $3,800.00 which was dispersed three ways between the three sick children. If I am not mistaken, we gave around $1,267.00 to each family. Way to go everyone!

    I am very grateful to the people who helped out, and donated there time and money to make this event successful. I am also proud of my Garrison, the Mississippi Outpost, the Rebel Legion and the Red Stick Rebellion, for taking their time away from their families and getting dressed up in costume for this event. If it wasn’t for their generosity and dedication, this event would not have been possible.

    Thanks again for all of your assistance in making this event a big success. if you would like to see photos from this year's event, please visit the following link: http://public.fotki.com/LA501st/imperial-funland-ev-1/

    Yours Truly,
