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.
Get ready for an intergalactic fun-fest as Rancho Obi‐Wan launches its 2nd Annual Gala on Saturday, September 20th #ROWgala.
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.
A live auction will be conducted by Steve and a silent auction will be held the entire evening. There will be a balloon pop and other games with great prizes in addition to door prizes.
Indulge yourself with treats and services from our award-winning providers. Dinner will be prepared by local chef Julie Warner of Twisted 2 restaurant. Wine from many of Sonoma County’s 16 appellations will be served in addition to beer and soft drinks. Luscious desert will be baked by Rancho neighbor Let’s Do Cake. Special photography will be provided by Victoria Webb.
We look forward to spending an incredible evening with you celebrating our mutual love of Star Wars and relaxing amongst friends. Rancho Obi-Wan is a fan experience beyond that of conventions and theme parks.
