Where: Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Description: An amazing event to celebrate the many Ambassadors for the Opkikker foundation. These Ambassadors are children who in the past have been a guest on one of the Opkikker events for sick children and their families. 1200 Ambassadors and their families were invited for a cruise on the Amsterdam chanals. Along the route they encountered many friends, whom they met during one of the Opkikker events. The 501st was stationed at the harbour, where they entertained these very special passengers of the passing ships with their own interpretation of the opening scene of A New Hope, where Princess Leia was captured by Darth Vader and his awesome troopers. At each passing ship, the sketch became more and more absurt, much to the amusement of the spectators.
Result: With the 501st Legion’s help, 6000 families enjoyed a very special boat trip. With all their spirits renewed, they are energized for another year of spreading the word about the good deeds of the Opkikker foundation and it’s friends such as troopers of the 501st legion!
