Open to all:

From the event request:
"We the members of soldiers of the Cross motorcycle Ministry are putting together a fundraiser to help raise funds for little Matthew Gress. Matthew is 9 years old and has been diagnosed with stage 4 terminal cancer. Hospice has projector 6 months. At this event we will be escorting Matthew from his home to the event. Our ultimate goal would be for Matthew to open the doors and find as many costumes superheroes and characters as possible. The event will consist of free BBQ entertainment for the kids. Matthew has been diagnosed with desmoplastic small round cell tumors. Matthew has a total of 5 tumors, chemo has not been successful and Matthew is now spending time with his family. Make-A-Wish Foundation has stepped up and made dreams come true at Legoland. We as a community would like to make this dream come true for Matthew. I know this is very short notice but would appreciate any participation you could provide."

Soldiers of the Cross is a faith based motorcycle group and they will be escorting Mathew from his home in Lockeford to the event site where he will be greeted by his favorite Star Wars and Super Hero characters. They will have bounce houses, water slides and games for kids. A caterer is doing a barbecue.

Mathew's favorite Star Wars character is Chewbacca. I'll see what I can find to give as a gift. If anyone has anything they would like to donate, please let me know.

Event Name: Make Mathew Smile

Event Date: Saturday, September 24, 2016

Parking: Parking will be provided at the church next door.

Secure Changing Area: They are providing a changing area in the basement of the church next door. Otherwise you can change at your vehicle if you like. Other costuming groups have been invited to this event.

Blasters: Our blasters and lightsabers are welome. Given the location of this event, I would advise lightsabers only.

Event Website/Flyer: None yet.

They have also sent an invite to other costuming groups.

Please sign up if you are interested. I'm unable to attend this event as I'm signed up for the Walk of Hope in Sacramento that day.
