Event Name
Surprise Star Wars Graduation Ceremony for Terminally Ill Young Man

Event Description
On August 4th we will be hosting a surprise graduation ceremony for Jack Paladin Spady, a young man who has been battling terminal illness since the age of 15. Because of Jack's love for the Star Wars franchise, we have decided to theme the entire ceremony around Star Wars.

At 15 Jack was diagnosed with Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (formerly known as Wegener's), a rare degenerative disease. He is currently on a transplant list for a double lung (and potential heart) transplant. The demands that his disease took on his body prevented him from being able to attend school and graduate with his class. On August 4th, he will be presented with his high school diploma, retroactively graduating with the class of 2017.

Setup Begins at: 10:30 am
Ceremony Begins at: 12:00 pm

After the ceremony concludes, we will have a reception in the theatre lobby. We anticipate that the reception will last around an hour to an hour and a half. We will be providing refreshments during the reception. Afterwards we will hold a screening of Titanic, a movie that Jack has always wanted to see - anyone who would like to stay for the screening is welcome and encouraged to.

We would be grateful for any characters who would like to attend.

This is a big deal event for Jack Spady and we really need to turn out for this one. We need a photog, handlers and a lot of our costumed members. I'll be out of town myself, but I'm going to pass this along to the Mando's, the Droid Builders and the 501st. Thanks, everyone!
The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.
