I do like to post photos of previous events in the hopes that people want to be a part of the picture...

Yeah...we sure have grown...
the first year it was just
Mark Van Slyke and Jim Tampa as the Biker Scouts, Rich Markle as Vader and me as the Stormtrooper...

I try to do something different each year we walk. Last year I made a particular effort to remember and honor family members of our members that have been lost to cancer of any form or who were battling cancer.

Last year our team raised over $6,700.00 for cancer research - our largest fundraiser of the year. This year I would like to do better...even if it is by only one dollar. So this year I invite all members, soon to be members, wanna be members and just plain lurkers to join in this years fundraising contest.

It will not be easy...but the reward will be an item valued at $600.00.

Now the contest:


The following Star Wars collectibles will be given to one person raising $1,000.00 for the American Cancer Society.
The contest is open to all BUT..
you have to join our team and record your contributions to the team page.

Here is a link to our Team Page and just follow the instructions to join our team.

Team Page :

http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/MakingStridesAgainstBreastCancer/MSABCFY12Illinois?team_id=960747&pg=team&fr_id=36067


All persons who manage to attain $1,000.00 in donations will be eligible and one winner will be drawn from those that reach $1,000.00. Your chances are probably pretty good. Of note, last year I raised over $2,000.00 just by e-mailing my friends and family and doing a small raffle at one of my Master Gardener's functions.

So...here is the prize:

9 Hawthorne Village Star Wars collectible scenes.
All have a light up function
All have a figure that goes with them
All have their original packaging, are numbered and have the corresponding Certificate of Authenticity.
Most were removed from the packaging today for the first time, just to get photographed.
A couple were displayed for a short time under plastic.
A couple of them did have small "weak pieces" that broke.

You get them all....winner takes all!!

Here are photos of the pieces you can win:


































So, if you are interested in joining the team....and getting in on the contest....regardless if you will be able to do the walk....

let me know...

If nothing else...
you will be doing a good thing for cancer research.

Only donations recorded at the Team Page will be eligible for consideration...
it has to do with accountability...

wink2


Here is a guy on Youtube that reviews one of them so you can see the size of them...well...if you can stay awake while he talks...
lol..

Here is the page at Hawthorne Village where you can also see them (by the time you pay shipping and taxes each figure comes out to around $75.00)
