Some of you will have seen this photo recently. Some of you may even have had a good guess at the year it was taken. But wouldn’t you like to know the full details? KM UK uses the force to bring you all the info.
The year was 2007. Kathryn, George Lucas and a host of other stars of stage, screen, magazine and sports arena were preparing to taken part in the annual Toyota Pro/Celebrity race that accompanies the Grand Prix of Long Beach. The event is held to raise money for the Racing For Kids which supports children’s hospitals in Long Beach and the neighbouring Orange County, California. A worthy cause we’re sure you’ll agree.
One of the hospitals to benefit from the fund raising (around $100,000 is said come from the Pro/Celebrity race) is the Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach. On Thursday the 12th of April 2007, two days before the race Kathryn, George and a personal Star Wars Stormtropper escort visited MCH. The man in the white plastic suit is Michael Bender, aka TK6682. Michael’s own Facebook page is here.
You can now find the full photo in the Gallery.
We’d like to thank Michael for allowing KM UK to post his photo and for the details of the event, the ladies of the Star Wars Sorority for their assistance and Kathy for the heads-up.
