501st Legion | MidSouth Garrison

On May 31st – June 1st members of MidSouth Garrison and Garrison Tyranus were invited to attend the NOPI Nationals, Car show, Drag race and Drift event with over 500 cars and 12,000 attendees. This event was for an annual car show, drag race and drift competition at the Bristol Dragway in Bristol Tennessee. We were invited to promote Dreams and Wishes for a 3 day trooping event each day of the event with the Dreams and Wishes representatives to collect donations for their program. Troopers covered the entire event in four separate lots spanning two square miles at the Bristol Speedway in 90 degree temperatures. Overall, Dreams and Wishes collected $1120.00 in donations during the three day/15 hour troop.

Dreams and Wishes of TN is proud to say they are affiliated with the 501st Legion MidSouth Garrison. This is a great group of guys and gals who spend their time helping raise awareness and donations for a variety of charities. Over the past 15 months, the 501st Legion MidSouth Garrison has raised over $5,000.00 to help make wishes come true for children that have relapsed from a cancer diagnosis. In my opinion that’s phenomenal! To see the smiles on the children’s faces when their favorite Star Wars character shakes their hand will melt your heart.” – Dreams and Wishes of Tennessee
