Rancho Obi-Wan Second Annual Gala

Teresa and I had a chance to talk to Consetta Parker about the upcoming Rancho Obi-Wan 2nd Annual Gala for this month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue. Here is the full press release about the event, and how fans can sign up.

RANCHO OBI-WAN ANNOUNCES 2ND ANNUAL FUNDRAISING GALA

Petaluma, CA—June 30, 2014—Get ready for an intergalactic fun-fest as Rancho Obi-Wan launches its 2nd Annual Gala on Saturday, September 20th. Tickets are limited so reserve space early. Save $50 by booking your passport to a galaxy not so far away by July 13th.

It’s a party as only Rancho Obi-Wan can throw one, in the midst of the world’s largest collection of Star Wars memorabilia and hosted by master-collector Steve Sansweet. There will be dinner, drinks and dessert all night, a trading-card bounty hunt and other games, door prizes, a special gala T-shirt and a super swag bag filled with exclusive goodies. Get ready for surprises galore, VIPs to mix and mingle with, Rancho’s incredible live and silent auctions, entertainment, special exhibits…and much, much more.

The gala will raise funds for the ongoing costs of maintaining Rancho Obi-Wan including insurance, utilities, security, professional services, maintenance, and protection, preservation and documentation of the collection. No funds are ever used to acquire collectibles. Monies raised will also enable us to continue our mission of inspiring others through public outreach to schools and for other charities to raise funds.

$200 if completed by Sunday, July 13th 9pm PST
