Fundraiser for Nate

Original report by: Crystal von Oy, Alpha Base

Fundraiser-Nate-2On Saturday February 23rd members of Alpha Base and Garrison Titan gathered to help one of their own members, Darthspike, who’s son, Nate, is prone to epileptic seizures, which have the potential to be life threatening. The event was a fundraiser to help them obtain a seizure assist dog for Nate.

Here is a story about Nate in our local paper that ran in early February 2013 [click here]

The fundraiser drew many people with a bake sale, raffle, a big bouncy house castle and slide. There was also a photo booth where people could have their photo taken with the Star Wars characters as well as an informal blast-a-trooper, where even an Ewok got into the fun! Together with the bake sale, raffle, our photo booth and blast-a-trooper, we helped raise almost $2500, in less than 3 hours!!

This is a quote from Darthspike himself: “A big warm thank you again to everyone that attended! The troop was a huge success and I am happy to say that we raised the remaining money needed for Nate and also raised extra money to donate to the twin boys from Seattle who are in need of a dog too! A truly amazing amount of $2496 dollars Total was raised!!! Thank you my friends for making this such a wonderful and fun event for all!”
