The Washington DC Metro Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) wishes to announce to fans and collectors that a limited number of their fourth and sixth bi-annual charity lapel pins are still available. Order now for delivery in time for Christmas!
The 2010 pin features Luke Skywalker on his tauntaun with DCSWCC’s signature Washington Monument in the background, in honor of the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back. Fourth in DCSWCC’s series of high-quality cloisonné lapel pins, officially sanctioned by Lucasfilm Ltd., each pin is individually stamped and numbered on the back. Only 1000 will ever be made.
The 2014 pin features Commander Cody from Episode III holding a hologram of the Washington Monument. Sixth in DCSWCC’s series of high-quality cloisonné lapel pins, officially sanctioned by Lucasfilm Ltd., each pin is individually stamped and numbered on the back. Only 500 will ever be made.
All proceeds from the sales of these pins benefit the Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation, a hospital housing provider for the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, Maryland. DCSWCC’s support will be directed toward military families with critically ill children at BIT’s “House on the Bay” in nearby Ocean City, Maryland.

DCSWCC has a rich history of supporting children’s charities in the Washington DC region. Their other charity pins featured Yoda, Chewbacca, the animated Boba Fett, and R2-D2, and have netted over $20,000 for DC Children’s Hospital, The Children’s Inn at NIH, and CureSearch for children’s cancer.
DCSWCC is one of the largest and most active collecting clubs in America, with over 50 members. The club meets monthly and holds special events throughout the year such as socials, picnics, and “Roadshow” appraisal events. For more information, visit the club website at http://www.dcswcc.org
