The event, now in its seventh year, was well attended by over 100 people and a great time was had by all. Lots of folks worked behind the scenes and at the actual event, but it’s all thanks to the people that attend that we are able to raise funds for this great charity.
CSTS OC is a team effort between CA Browncoats and SOCAL Browncoats and was, once again, expertly coordinated by Dawn.
Everyone involved would like to thank the following organizations/people for their generous support:
The venue, Starplex Cinemas Woodbridge Movies 5 is a great theater in Irvine, CA where, as usual, we were treated very well (thanks especially to John). Starplex HQ worked with us to make the event most cost effective and maximize our donation (Thanks Starplex!) If you want to catch a movie for a great price, you should give them a visit at 4626 Barranca Pkwy, Irvine 92604.
