Child’s Play has become a year round event but things definitely pick up around the holidays. One of the things I look forward to every year is the dinner auction that we put on here in Seattle. As of right now it’s about 80% sold out but you can still grab tickets if you act fast. Once a year it’s nice to ditch the black t-shirt for a black tux and get a little fancy. As usual we will have tons of incredible items from the videogame industry to bid on. It’s in amazing night and it’s all for a good cause so go grab your tickets today.
Also the annual Desert Bus for Hope starts today. This year we sent up a contingent of Penny Arcaders including Robert, Jamie and Kristin. Hit the stream and watch for them to take a turn at the wheel.
Since we started this charity back in 2003, gamers have managed to raise over 25 million dollars to help children all over the world through the power of play. I was going to write out the exact amount we have raised listed on the Child’s Play site but then I realized it was actually a live ticker that was constantly updating. In the time it took me to write the number here in my post and then go back to double check it, you all had donated another four hundred dollars. I know I say it every year but I will never stop being amazed at the incredible generosity of the gaming community. Thank you so much for supporting Child's Play.
