Event Description

Child’s Play at Cogswell Arcade is a charity event that is being put on by a group of Entrepreneurship students at Cogswell Polytechnical College in Sunnyvale, Ca

The purpose of the event is to raise awareness and funds for the local charity, Child’s Play.  “Child’s Play seeks to improve the lives of children in hospitals around the world through the kindness and generosity of the video game industry and the power of play.”

Our event, Child’s Play at Cogswell Arcade, will be taking place on April 27th, during Cogscon, Cogswell Polytechnical College Comicbook convention, at the school’s Sunnyvale location 1175 Bordeaux Drive, Sunnyvale Ca.

CogsCon is an independent art convention hosted by Cogswell College Comic Creation Club (C4) and Cogswell’s Associate Student Body (ASB). The idea behind this convention is to celebrate Cogswell College and everything it teaches: Digital Art, 3D Animation, Digital Audio, Video-games, Comic Books, and everything else in the nerd’s paradise.

Child’s Play At Cogswell Arcade will be located inside Cogscon during the entire festival and will be a hub of gaming glory! Throughout the day there will be a plethora of activities for Cogscon attendees to enjoy.

In the arcade there will be three main gaming experiences: Dungeons & Dragons, Warhammer 40K Tournament, and a couple crazy games of CLUE, where participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character.

As well as the three main events there will also be a large amount of random gaming activity including decks of cards, other board games such as Sorry, Hungry Hungry Hippos, Monoploy, etc. and a group of Classic Video game consoles (Sega Master System, NES, Nintendo Gamecube, and more) for all to play throughout the day.

To partake in the three main game events there will be a required donation to Child’s Play of at least $5. All other games and activities will be free to play, but we will have tablets and computer stations open and available for ANYONE to make a donation.

Child’s Play at Cogswell Arcade will also be accepting physical donations to give directly to The Children’s Hospital in Oakland Ca.
