Brad Kulp Charity Patch to Benefit Fox Chase Cancer Center
In 2015, Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society (PSWCS) member Brad Kulp passed away after battling cancer. During his illness, Brad was treated by the doctors at Fox Chase Cancer Center.
As a thank you to those who cared for Brad, the Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society are doing a fundraiser for Fox Chase Cancer Center in Brad’s name. We will be selling 100 patches featuring original artwork created by Bill Cable for Brad as a gift and later used by Brad to promote his DJ business.
Each patch will be $10 and sold first during the Star Wars Collectors’ Exhibit at the Sellersville Museum in Sellersville, PA. This is the fifth annual event and was originated by Brad. Fellow PSWCS members held the event last year in memory of Brad and had over 500 people attend. This year’s event will be held October 8-9 from 12 noon until 4:00pm. Admission to the event is free.
The patch is Lucasfilm approved and will never be reproduced. All of the proceeds from the sale will be donated in Brad’s name to Fox Chase Cancer Center.
