Mission Status: Success! More runs on the board for the Redbacks!

Details/Photos:

There was no better way to kick off celebrations for our highly anticipated Galactic Empire Charity Ball than with a grand parade on the day! Numerous troopers and Jedi knights marched right through heart of Brisbane with crowds of onlookers stopping to admire the mighty Redbacks! Both Imperial and Rebel forces worked together for a great cause – to raise money and awareness for Kidney Health Australia.  

Sofia Kudlak (QLD Community Services Manager for Kidney Health Australia) has passed on her sincere thanks - "Thank you once again for supporting KHA at the Queen Street Parade.  You guys were fantastic and I was very impressed with the organisation of the event and your strong commitment. We are very proud to have you as a KHA supporter and I look forward to working with you in any future activities that may come up." 

The media exposure was outstanding, we were mentioned in numerous newspapers (Brisbane Times, Sydney Morning Herald, WA Today, Canberra Times, The North West Star, Redland City Bulletin, just to name a few...) as well as Channel 7 News report on the night.   
 
A big thank you to everyone who was able to make it from all of the clubs (501st / Rebel Legion / Galactic Academy), the Tattersall's Club for generously providing a more than spacious change room, and the awesome piper Fergus for leading our parade!
