As a proud member of Rancho Obi-Wan, it is my joyful and ongoing responsibility to support an organization whose purpose is to collect, preserve and exhibit Star Wars memorabilia and artifacts. I have not been a member for long–I enrolled late December 2013 as a Christmas present to myself–but I have played my part with other members of the Star Wars fan community in bringing awareness and funds to a growing collection (check out The Kessel Run event from earlier this year organized by Making Star Wars and Mark Newbold of Jedi News UK).
All that said, here is your chance to support Rancho Obi-Wan and win a chance to visit the collection in person!
Celebrate “May the 4th” in the ultimate Star Wars environment! Now through noon PT on April 4th, for every donation we receive of $10 or more, we will enter the donor’s name in an opportunity drawing. On April 4th we will draw 10 names and those donors will be invited to bring one guest to Rancho Obi-Wan on May, 4, 2014 for an intimate celebration, including a guided tour of the museum with owner Steve Sansweet, lunch and other fun activities. Visit the website for full details.
In addition to this exciting contest, Rancho Obi-wan will be publishing more blog posts with frequent updates by Rancho Obi-Wan’s directors and other special guests, “Look for some exciting anecdotes that will run the gamut from personal experiences, to collectibles old and new, to fandom-all bound together by our shared love and passion for Star Wars.”
To kick things off, Steve Sansweet wrote a post about the birth of Rancho Obi-Wan in the hills east of Hollywood. Read all about it by clicking through the image below.
