So this post is about Thursday night's event, which is a benefit for the Keith Milano Memorial Fund. I've been a part of this in one way or another every year, and it's always a joy to know I'm participating in something that does some good.
Each year I donate the proceeds for one book for a month (or a minimum $ amount if the book doesn't do that great) --this year's book is Summer Lessons, and everybody who loved Mason's little brother Dane, and wanted to see his romance with Carpenter, you'll understand why. (And if you didn't, you can always hit the link and purchase it during the month of May!)
So I have pictures of the event, and the awesome cookie we got as a thank you and the awesome people who came to talk to me while I was there. It was also the night of the 20's party, and yes--that's me in costume ;-)
Following is some information about this night, and at the END of the post is a picture of ZoomBoy and Imperial Scouts in order of May the Fourth be with you! By all means read the info to get to the picture of ZoomBoy!
And, uh, May the Fourth be With You!
