On Saturday the 7th of July as well as Sunday the 8th of July, the stormtroopers, royal guards and officers of the 501st Malaysia Outpost were at the Bangsar Shopping Center trooping for the Society of the Severely Mentally Handicapped. Lord Vader pried himself from his busy schedule to grace the event and even the Emperor's presence was felt when his ever intimidating Royal Guards flanked Lord Vader as he escorts Puan Fadilah and Sheila Majid during the opening of the event on Saturday.

The Event itself is a cashless event, solely relying on coupon booklets to allow the participating public to trade in the coupons for products ranging from food and beverages to daily amenities like soap. The troopers conducted the standard operations for these events by offering printed photo's onsite with a generous donation of RM 10 as well as having a walkabout while carrying the donation boxes.

The total tally of funds collected on Day 1, Saturday the 7th of July are:

RM2050 + RM104 tickets (coupons)

While on Day 2, Sunday the 8th of July are:

RM2039.65 + RM195 tickets

That brings our total of donations collected on both days to: RM4284.65!! A new Record!
