FOX 19 ROTS Car Wash

On Monday, May 14th, members of OSWCC South region and the Ohio Garrison of the 501st joined forces for the FOX19 Paul Horton’s Car Wash for Make-a-Wish foundation. Dressed in Imperial and Jedi gear, our members paraded around the car wash site drawing attention to the event and generally hanging out and getting to know each other while helping out a great charity. There were many photographs taken with cell phone cameras as people drove by the area. The group had three live television spots on the 10 o’clock news and got to point out spots that Mr. Horton missed while washing cars that evening. Also making an appearance that evening was the young actor Josh Hutcherson and his younger brother, who hung around with us. They enjoyed checking out our props, armor, and talking about Star Wars. OSWCC members who participated were Sean Dargis (Stormtrooper), Zac Schneider (jedi), Dave Snedigar (Biker Scout), and Dale Meyers (jedi). This was an excellent occasion to promote the club, and the participants had a great time at the event. Many Thanks to FOX19 for this opportunity!
