Get your Child's Play charity auction dinner tickets before December 5th photo



It's almost that time again. The Child's Play charity hosts a swank auction and dinner event this time of year every year to raise money for the chilluns. The whole thing goes down this year on December 9th at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center's skybridge. They're still selling tickets ($125 ea.) up until December 5th. Your money goes to a good cause, and you can order the Pumpkin Ravoli. Yum!

Industry pros and community members get together to eat and then bid on rare items. This year's hot items include: 

  • A microwave from Harmonix
  • A Halo 3 Master Chief helmet signed by Bungie, Roosterteeth and Penny Arcade staff
  • A bronze-cast World of Warcraft statue of an orc and wolf mount, given exclusively to Blizzard Entertainment employees
  • A mint-condition, limited edition Black Dreamcast autographed by former Sega President Peter Moore 

The dinner will also be the very first opportunity for fans to pick up an advanced copy of a special nerdcore CD to benefit Child’s Play. Acts such as The OneUps, MC Frontalot, Jonathan Coulton, Freezepop and many more are featured. More on this later!

Dinner auction tickets may be purchased at http://www.childsplaycharity.org/cpdinner.php for $125 per person, $60 of which is tax deductible. Corporate table sponsorships (seats 10) are still available. Contact klindsay@penny-arcade.com for further information.

About Child's Play: Child's Play is a non-profit organization begun in 2003 by Mike "Gabe" Krahulik and Jerry "Tycho" Holkins, the creators of the Penny Arcade comic strip, as a way to help sick children and show the world the softer side of people who play videogames. Through the generosity of gamers and the videogame industry, Child's Play has raised nearly four million dollars in toys, games and cash for sick children through an ongoing online toy drive and annual charity auction. Now in its sixth year, Child's Play has developed a worldwide network of beneficiary Children's Hospitals in order to brighten hospital stays for children internationally.
