This was a last minute event that I was both surprised and delighted we were able to pull together. The organization running it was Kisses for Kyle. They support 600 families dealing with childhood cancer in the Philadelphia area. The Stars salon hosted some of their families for free hair cuts and pampering. There was also a DJ, food, a clown and of course us.

It was a rather small event but every child there had been affected by cancer in some way. So their smiles and the interactions we had with them meant so much. Our contact with Kisses for Kyle was extremely thankful and pleased and wants to send more events our way. The salon owner also loved us and took a card for if they do any charity events in the future. Channel 6 ABC news was also in attendance and took footage of us with the kids.

The only complain I can give is that our dressing areas were rather cramped. We made it work, but if we did return I don't think we would want to bring any more people than we had. Things of note: This was Doug's first official troop as a Ghost Base member. Don's first adventure in Chewie was received extremely well and everyone loved seeing him. And all of the Galactic Academy members did a great job and made so many kids happy. Overall, it was a great troop and the organization wants to work with us in the future.
