TITLE: 07-12-14 - Make-A-Wish, Corvette Car Show | NAME: Vex | TKID: 2151 | DATE: 2014-07-15 17:27:36
The Mississippi Rancor Raiders, famous statewide for Star Wars Charity Costuming, have once again brought marvel and intrigue to the children and adults alike at the Corvette Car Show benefitting Make-A-Wish foundation.
Stunned by the high gloss shine of the dozens of rare corvettes, onlookers also were reminded of the day they first laid eyes on the big screen to see the shiny finish of Darth Vader's helmet.
"I remember the first time I saw Stormtroopers" said Randy Davis of Madison. "I thought how amazing of an imagination of a single man (George Lucas)" Davis added.
Among the cars and spacemen were many vendors peddling their fine wares. One of which was a man selling sweet jalapeños!
Jane Walsh, director and public relations for Make-A-Wish made the statement that kids love the "Star Wars Guys" as much as the cars.
"We seem to think we have an edge over the cars but that's the great thing about these events, there is something for everybody" quipped Stephen Ballenger, Darth Vader Costumer and current Rancor Raider Commanding Officer.
