Star Wars Celebration Anaheim was a huge success for PSWCS.org which sold a Darth Vader medallion in support of Castaway Critters, a no-kill animal shelter in Harrisburg, PA. The limited edition medallion, with only 1,000 pieces, sold out on Sunday afternoon raising over $6,700 for Castaway Critters.
PSWCS.org and the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society want to thank everyone that stopped by our booth during Celebration Anaheim and purchased a medallion for this excellent cause.
But our fundraising is not done yet. Actor Steve Blum, who voices Zeb Orrelios on the animated show Star Wars: Rebels, donated a signed photo that is be auctioned on eBay with all proceeds also going to Castaway Critters. The auction can be found here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/281670228214
This is the third Celebration where a collectible medallion was released for charity but it’s the first time the entire run was sold out during the course of the event. The response to the medallion and the charity were overwhelming and on behalf of Castaway Critters, PSWCS.org would like to thank everyone that purchased a medallion or made a donation.
