My oldest son Gabe is sixteen now and he hasn’t really been interested in Halloween for a few years.Noah is ten though and he is what I would call the target demographic for this holiday. Not being able to wander the neighborhood collecting candy is a huge disappointment but we’re doing what we can to make it a fun night. He’s still dressing up in a costume and we’ll get some good candy but the festivities will be limited to our own house this year.
Lots of things are changing this year due to COVID. The Child’s Play dinner and auction that we hold every year in December is going online. The auction is always an awesome night and we raise lots of money for Child’s Play. I’m hoping that this year with it being an online event, even more people will be able to participate. Take a look at the event page and browse through the ticket options. Personally I think the “Mix and Mingle” option is really cool. This ticket includes a package that gets shipped to your house before the event and includes fixings for drinks to help celebrate the evening.
The auction itself will feature items donated by gamers and the games industry. It’s always an impressive selection of items and every year I’ve found something I wanted to bid on. It’s all for a good cause too since all proceeds go directly to Child’s Play. This money will go to help improve the lives of children in hospitals all over the world through the power of games and technology.
Tickets are on sale now and the event will take place on December 10th.
