CLEVELAND - Thanks to A Special Wish, a few lucky kids were able to see some of their favorite 'Star Wars' characters.

Ray and a storm trooper were there from an international costuming and charity organization, A Rebel Legion.

"It's really important, between our organization and the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital, for what these kids are going through, just to put a smile on their face. It's what it's all about, and 'Star Wars' is so popular, the kids love them, the families love them, so anytime a character walks in the room it really lights up a child's face," said Jason Beudert, co-founder of A Special Wish.

Currently, A Special Wish is serving more than 50 kids at Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital, University Hospitals and Ronald McDonald House.
