The Million McFly March was a huge success. A little over 100 people RSVP’d, but throughout the day we saw more than 1,000 Martys, Docs, Lorraines, and plenty others. Eight DeLoreans (maybe more?) showed up and let Back to the Future fans take pictures with them. Mark Campbell and Minor Strut rocked the place. And more importantly, we raised more than $1,500 in cash donations, and have raised almost $1,000 online, all of which goes directly to TeamFox for Parkinson’s research.
We had a lot of fun, and we got to meet fellow fans and people who genuinely care about helping out for a good cause. People had so much fun, that they asked if we’re doing another one. We want to, and we’re looking into what that would take. In the meantime, you can join our Facebook Page here for updates: https://www.facebook.com/groups/772746726180769.
ORIGINAL SITE TEXT:
On Wednesday, October 21, 2015, from 9 AM to 6 PM, StolenDress Entertainment is bringing the world the Million McFly March. Fans of the film will gather at the first real-world location used in Back to the Future (The Burbank Burger King at 545 N Victory Blvd, Burbank, California 91502), dressed as Marty McFly, to participate in the largest gathering of McFlys in history, and to help raise money for Parkinson’s research. Let’s gather on the day Marty travels to in Back to the Future II and, instead of mourning the lack of a hoverboard, let’s celebrate the film and help some people out in the process.
**UPDATE: Two raffle winners will get tickets to the Los Angeles premiere of the Back to the Future documentary Back in Time!
**UPDATE: A number of actors from the films have offered up autographed photos for raffle, including Harry Waters, Jr (Marvin Berry!), Jeffrey Weissman (George McFly in Parts II & III!) and Donald Fullilove (Goldie Wilson!)
**UPDATE: We’ll have raffles of Back to The Future Themed Art from brilliant artists like Adam Koford, Sara Pocock and Jenny Fine
**UPDATE: Our band is announced! The awesome Minor Strut will play, starting at 3:30, joined by Mark Campbell (Marty’s singing voice!) for a very special performance!
**UPDATE: Buy the poster and other items now! All proceeds are donated to TeamFox
**UPDATE: Donate $10 for 20 chances to appear on the Comedy on Vinyl podcast!
You can donate now at the official TeamFox page for the event: bit.ly/millionmcflymarch, and we’re also looking at other team events to help raise more funds. We’re open to any suggestions fans of the movies have, as well.
