When to use an Event Rider

Thanks to some help from our contacts within Lucasfilm we have permission to use event riders when coordinating an event. We do not have to use them if we do not want to, but they are available if we feel the need to use them. Using an event rider helps to protect our members when trooping an event and establishes an expectation that we will be properly cared for at the event. In turn it also provides the event host with a sense of accountability that we will come through on our part of the arrangement. A full explanation of this can be found in the 501st Legion Databank.

Charity Events

A charity event is any event sponsored by a reputable charity for the purposes of raising awareness or fundraising. Examples include Toys-For-Tots store appearances in conjunction with the United States Marine Corps, blood drives, charity fairs, walks and runs, school fairs, and scouting events. A full explanation of this can be found in the Performance and Hospitality Rider - Charity Events section of the 501st Legion Databank.

Corporate Events

A corporate or promotional event is any event sponsored by a corporate, advertising, promotional or marketing firm for the purpose of promoting a product, sale, or media release. Typically, the product or event must have some relationship to the Star Wars franchise and may require permission and sanction by Lucasfilm, Ltd. If the Legion has any question of the validity of the product or event, the Legion reserves the right to contact Lucasfilm, Ltd. regarding the event. A full explanation of this can be found in the Performance and Hospitality Rider - Corporate and Promotional Events section of the 501st Legion Databank.

Private Events

A private event is any event requested for a nonpublic or non-promotional function. Private events include (but are not limited to): birthday parties, weddings, award ceremonies, retirement parties, and hospital visits. A full explanation of this can be found in the Performance and Hospitality Rider - Private Events section of the 501st Legion Databank.
