Solvangopoly Fundraiser – Special Edition Collector’s Monopoly – Solvang, CA, USA

Special collectors version of Monopoly
Solvangopoly ~ The fun begins in Solvang

In honor of Solvang’s 100 year Anniversary the Danish Sisterhood in Solvang have sponsored a Solvangopoly board game.
The games are $28. including tax. They are a one time limited edition.

The business have been most generous in buying the spaces for the game, which were sold out in two weeks.  Therefore we were not able to get everyone interested a space.
The front cover and the middle of the board is done by our famous local paper cutting artist Rick Marzullo.


The game is available at the Home Connection, Rasmussens and the Elverhoj Museum. They are also available from several Sisterhood members also, Else Lassiter and Jacque Wagstaffe. The profits will go towards high school scholarships as well as local organizations in need.
