Dia De Los Star Wars: A Night of Joy and Fundraising
It’s finally here! Our Dia De Los Stars event is just days away. We have so much in store for you this Saturday at the Thinkery. To start out the night we’ll have an Action Pack karaoke dance party, followed by DJ Ariel Quintans to keep you dancing all night. There will be various opportunities to donate throughout the evening, including a raffle throughout the evening featuring some out of this world prizes.
We’ll have various games set up with special Dia De Los Muertos themed prizes to celebrate the occasion. Tapas Bravas will be set up selling delectable treats, and they have so generously offered to donate 20% of their sales for the evening to Leap of Joy. Deep Eddy and Austin Beerworks have both donated to our event which means free alcoholic beverages for everyone over 21 years of age. We will be taking donations for non-alcoholic beverages. Though we will have square set up to take credit and debit card donations, we want to encourage you to bring cash to tip your hard working bartenders and food workers as they have donated their time to the event.
Over at Hart elementary our theater class put together a promo featuring the entire class as Jedi, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Stormtroopers, and Darth Vader. The links to both shorts and the full promo video are posted below. Our wonderful videographer Marques did such a wonderful job editing the videos, and we hope it gets you in the mood to check out Saturday’s event.
Doors open at 8:00 pm, the event will officially start at 8:30. We encourage you to dress up as your favorite Star Wars character or your best Sugar skull makeup to celebrate the occasion. There will be a special appearance by Jamie McShane’s R2D2 and the 501st Legion. There is no cover to the event so come on out and celebrate the season with all of us at Leap of Joy.
