2018 Charity Pin now on sale!!

D.C. Star Wars Collecting Club

The Washington DC Metro Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC) announces our eighth biannual charity lapel pin. The 2018 pin features Luke in his black Jedi garb holding a glimmering green lightsaber in the shape of the club’s signature Washington Monument. Eighth in the series of high-quality pins, and officially licensed by Lucasfilm Ltd., each pin is individually stamped and numbered – only 500 will ever be made!

All proceeds benefit the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors. TAPS offers compassionate care to all those grieving the death of a loved one who served in the United States Armed Forces. Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort and hope 24 hours a day, seven days a week through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, all at no cost to surviving families and loved ones. This is a most fitting charity tribute for DCSWCC, because in February we lost a beloved friend, long-time club officer and treasurer, Luke Jedi focus collector, and retired U.S. Navy Lieutenant Bob Martinazzi.

DCSWCC has a rich history of supporting children’s charities in the Washington DC region. Our other charity pins featured Yoda, Chewbacca, the animated Boba Fett, Luke on his tauntaun, R2-D2, Commander Cody, and BB-8, and have raised over $34,000 for organizations including Children’s National Medical Center, The Children’s Inn at NIH, and Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation.
