The Red Sands Patrol is an unofficial coalition of the Dewback Ridge Garrison of the 501st Legion, the Vhe’Rang Clan of the Mandalorian Mercenaries, the West Texas Squad of the 501st Legion’s Star Garrison, and non-affiliated Star Wars costumers. We are Star Wars costume enthusiasts who attend, and hold, charity events for the local commnities of El Paso, Texas and Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Teaming with Extra-Life, Gamestop, One More Level Retro Gaming, and the El Paso Children’s Hospital, we will be hosting a 12-hour Star Wars Gaming Marathon. This marathon will be streaming live on Twitch for people to watch, as well as visitable in person.

Using the Team Extra-Life donations page ( http://www.extra-life.org/team/RedSandsPatrol2016 ), we will be taking online donations for the hospital. You can also donate money, toys, games, and stuffed animals for the El Paso Children’s Hospital at the event.

This event is Free and open to everyone! Instead of charging for the event, we will be asking for donations (not required!). We will also be having a silent auction and door prizes for those who attend in person to try and help raise money.

Your donation is tax-deductible and the proceeds go to help the kids.
