GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)-The Force was strong at Van Andel Arena Saturday night, as the Griffins' Star Wars night generated record proceeds.

Hundreds of people lined up to have their picture taken with a variety of Star Wars costumers, including Princess Leia, Darth Vader, C3P0 and R2D2.

WZZM 13 Star Wars fan Brent Ashcroft coordinates the annual event, which is in its seventh year. Organizers say Saturday night's event raised more than $10,000 for the Grand Rapids Griffins Youth Foundation, which helps children learn to skate.
