Rancho Obi-Wan Gala to Celebrate 40 Years of Star Wars Collecting
Via Rancho Obi-Wan:
It’s been forty years since Steve plucked his first Star Wars collectible out of a trash can at the Wall Street Journal. In celebration of that auspicious moment our 6th annual fundraiser will take place on Saturday, November 4th, 2017. You won’t want to miss it!
Rancho is a 100% fan-supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit and the annual Gala is our most important fundraiser of the year—and a lot of fun to attend!
Rancho Obi-Wan serves to inspire through the preservation and cultivation of the Star Warslegacy. Our goal is to create an all-encompassing Star Wars cultural center where you can experience every aspect of this nearly four decade-old phenomena through the most comprehensive repository of Star Wars memorabilia on the planet. Star Wars will live forever for the fan community through Rancho Obi-Wan.
