Cobra for the Win

Last Saturday was the Project Hero fundraising event for the Wounded Warrior Project and it turned out wonderfully. The event was hosted by Hero Comics and we are so thankful to Todd and the crew for aiding in the planning and execution. We raffled off items that were donated by Hero Comics, Jamie Tyndall, The Morgan Family, and Project Hero. We also took donations and had some amazing artists donate the proceeds from their sketches. A huge shout out and thanks to our special guest artists Mike Macropoulos, Justin Miller, Ben Glendenning, Al Sparrow, and Jason Worthington.

We spent quite a bit of time on the road waving at the local patrons. No accidents were caused and that was positive although I will say that Shipwreck had many the older ladies remembering back to the good old days when the ships would anchor and girls would line up on the docks waiting to be kissed by their favorite sailors.

Here is artist Ben Glendenning with the group. He gets a double shout out for also donating
some great sketch cards that are currently posted on ebay. BID!! All proceeds from the winning bids go directly to The Wounded Warrior Project. Please go and check them out:
 Cobra Commander, Lady Jay, Joe, Roadblock
They are wonderful buys plus your generous donation to WWP helps thousands of Wounded Warriors, and their families, as they return home from the current conflicts.

After the event at Hero Comics, special guests attended a complimentary viewing of G.I. Joe: Retaliation. I unfortunately could not attend due to work, but from what I heard, it was a thumbs up.

I am really proud of my group and how hard everyone who attended worked. We also had some other costumers come out to support as well. Thank you to the Phoenix Joe Group. This was a great event and a great costume run. For more information on Project Hero, you can also check out our Facebook page.
