Limited Empire Pins Benefit Charity

Pete Vilmur | June 22, 2010

The Washington DC Metro Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) is proud to announce their fourth bi-annual charity lapel pin sale.

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 cloisonne lapel pins, officially sanctioned by Lucasfilm Ltd., each pin is individually stamped and numbered on the back. Only 1000 will ever be made.

All proceeds from the sales of this pin benefit the Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation, the hospital housing provider for the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, Maryland. DCSWCC’s support this year will be directed toward military families with critically ill children at BIT’s “House on the Bay” in Ocean City, Maryland. For more information about Believe in Tomorrow, visit their website at http://www.believeintomorrow.org.

DCSWCC has a rich history of supporting children’s charities in the Washington DC region. Their previous charity pins featured Yoda, Chewbacca, and Boba Fett, and netted over $17,000 for DC Children’s Hospital, The Children’s Inn at NIH, and the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children Program.
