I would like to first thank you for the efforts towards St. Judes. I am excited to find an organization to become involved in and it helps that this organization works to help others. My name is Patrick and I am a Special Education teacher in Georgia. I have been teaching for 16 years and have enjoyed my career. I am married and have three sons.
I have been a Star Wars fan from the moment that I saw Episode IV in the theater. I have succeeded in raising three sons that are fans as well. I have always wanted to have a quality Jedi Costume and attend a convention. I was able to attend Star Wars Celebration with my family in my new costume. I came across the Jedi Assembly table by accident, but was immediately impressed. I will be submitting my application as soon as it is available.

Hello Patrick, welcome to the Jedi Assembly! We're all rather like family here.
I'm happy to say that we raised $818.00 for St Jude's. I raised 3 boys also, and as a parent I'm always grateful that I can only imagine what it's like for the families of children faced with a battle for their lives.
As a club, we are quite scattered in location, but we've been getting together for conventions since Celebration 3. The charity raffle has always been the highlight of our fan booth. We've also done local charity events like hospital visits and walks for cancer.
The application feature on the website should be functioning pretty soon, but in the meantime read through the costume code and post some pictures! Ask questions... we love it!
May the Force be with you!
