Note: This was scheduled to post at 8pm last night, but I inadvertently set the date for 5/5/15 instead of 5/4/15. Oops!
Happy Star Wars day (Like I said, oops) everyone!
Today we’d like to publicly announce that anyone interested in donating items to our 2015 RTX SideQuest Cocktail Party & Charity Auction may do so by filling out the form located at http://rtsidequest.org/auction-donations. We’ve already got quite a few incredible items to auction off, but we’re looking for help rounding things out! The RTX SideQuest auction has been a great showcase of community art and talent for the past three years, and we can’t wait to see what the RT Community creates for this year!
Speaking of items we already have…
Appearing at the charity auction this year: Signed Star Wars coins!
May the fourth be with you! An awesome RT community member named Bree (WomanFriday) donated a set of limited Star Wars coins to the RT SideQuest charity auction this August. With Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens scheduled for release this December, this is an exciting opportunity for any Star Wars fans in the community to own a rare set indeed. For more info about these coins, check out this post by TheForce.net.
In anticipation of Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith, California Lottery® issued a run of Star Wars coins as part of a Scratchers tie-in game. Bree acquired these coins during that time and kindly donated them to this year’s auction.
The C-3P0 coin is signed by Anthony Daniels and the Princess Leia coin is signed by Carrie Fisher. Signatures acquired in-person at Emerald City ComicCon 2015 and Vancouver Fan Expo 2015.

Not a bad start to our auction line-up, is it? We’ve got a LOT more stuff to share with you over the next few months, including information on this years’ RT SideQuest Signature Series!
