DCSWCC 1st Meeting – 9/13/2003
Mike Kurtz started the DCSWCC Yahoogroup on August 20th, 2003 and the first official meeting of the DCSWCC was held on September 13th, 2003. In the past 10 years, the club has fulfilled MK’s vision of being a place for Star Wars collectors to meet up with others of similar interest, expand their collecting habits, and more importantly, give fun toys back to the children of the DC Metro area. The club still maintains that vision through various charity related activities such as collecting canned goods for the local shelters and participating in Toys-for-Tots drives. The largest fundraising activity is the club’s bi-annual charity pin which has raised over $25,000 for the various charities which includes the DC Children’s Hospital, NIH Children’s Inn, Aluminum Cans for Burned Children, Believe in Tomorrow and CureSearch for Children’s Cancer.
