That Cannibal Jack was none other than the Mate responsible for the entire event. (what a sweetie!)

After we particiapted in a MAKE A WISH Event for a little mate who wanted to be Captin Jack, we became involved with CHOC in an on going basis shortly after he passed away at age 5.

And we've been raising money ever with a yearly fund raiser. His Parents and siblings came out as well and are so thrilled that he, (our little captin as we still call him) has inspired those of us who work on the event, visit the hospital and contribute time and effort in the name of all the kids.

Late Friday night, Anaheim officials came and told us that next year.... we get to block off the larger street and bring in even more booths.

We are just thrilled and it's ALL because you pirates come out to participate and support the good efforts of yer fellow Scallywags.

Thanks mates!

From everyone! :ph34r:

The event was a BLAST :ph34r: . I had great time and it was for a great cause. Thanks for the heads-up, Bess. Well, per your instructions, here are just a few of my pics from the evening......and they are missing a certain "Iron" someone that I never did get a picture with.... :ph34r:

Here is Marty, me, and Lee holding the Ragetti eye that I made....I think that one was your's Bess.

Sorry about the missed photo opp. I had every intention of seeing you again... just got caught up with the work end of it.

Come to one of our Pirate events and we'll try it again. Like... Belmont Shores in June. Right on the beach!

Ahh.... Davy Jones.

I asked him a couple of times if he'd been watered or needed anything.

VERY nice guy and she was nice as well. I had a chance to talk with her inside for awhile.

She was after my coat. :ph34r:

(Pirate!)

Belmont Shores sounds like a load of fun.....buuuut.....I happen to be getting married in June. It's going to be quite a hectic month for me. At least I will be getting married on the beach :ph34r:

We're actually having two ceremonies. One on the beach on June 13th, and a huge Persian wedding on the 28th :ph34r: Should be tons of fun.

I don't know, maybe Belmont Shores will be possible. I've pulled off crazier schedules in the past :ph34r:

....ahhh, so the Cannibal Jack be the one responsible for bringin' so many plump 'n juicy pirates together all in one place...'n behind barricades t' boot....guess that explains the 'hungry look' in he's eyes right around supper time :o

Did anyone see the little tiny female Cannibal Jackie that showed up? Now that was cute! She stood not but 3 foot tall she was, shrunken head, headdress 'n all.

Here be a shot of the Pirates that went a visit'n at the CHOC facility earlier in the day.

We have a select group of Pirates who get this task.. those who have the

*courage and fortatude* to deal well with the emotional stress of interacting with dying children.

I am SO proud of each and every one of them.

Can you find POTC Actors Lee, Treva, David, Vince, Marty, Maxie, Jerry and Louie? (Louie being the *Jack, farthest away rom the camera*) ?

Thanks mate...

It wasn't a *little* event to those who worked months on it but next year we have more street space thanks to the City of Anaheim who was so pleased with the efforts and results so you'll have more elbow room.

Drinks all around.

We cleared at least $5,000

Some of these Pirates are a generous lot.....

Take what ya can.... (we promise not to tell that you gave back) :lol:

:(

We did...

And got some terrific pictures of herself and our own Cannibal Jack.

He was smitten and she was happy as can be.

What a pair :(
