The 2012 Child’s Play Invitational Golf Tournament

Child’s Play is pleased to invite game industry members and fans alike to the second annual Child’s Play Invitational Golf Tournament! Since many of us will be in Los Angeles for E3, we figured the Friday after the show (June 8th, 2012) would be ideal for us to have some fun, eat some food and raise money for the cause. This year the tournament will be held at the gorgeous Angeles National Golf Club in Sunland, CA. All proceeds go to the partner hospitals & facilities in the Child’s Play network.

December is here!

Happy December, everyone! That big green bar keeps filling up: we have now raised $1,225,000, thanks to you! That is many, many truckloads of toys, games, and more for our 80 network hospitals worldwide. Those gifts will help kids like Roxanne’s nephew:

“I am the aunt of a child who was hospitalized due to congenital disorders many times through his life. The videogames Texas Children’s provided in the recovery room kept his younger brother occupied and allowed his mother to focus on other matters. In addition, games were a source of comfort and mental stimulation for my nephew when he was too exhausted to move and play. It made our many stays at Texas Children’s much easier. Thank you; Child’s Play and the people who contribute to its mission go a long way to making this world a more awesome place.” - Roxanne T.

For those of you who are attending our annual dinner auction, dust off your fancy clothes and stretch your bidding arm: we are one week away! This year’s auction has even more beautiful art, exclusive game swag, and incredible experiences than ever before, not to mention a delicious dinner and wine provided by our sponsor, Gamer:Wine (with names like Stunlock and n00b, how could we resist?) One incredibly rare item up for auction is #0060 Nintendo World Championships cartridge- a true “holy grail” of game collecting. To answer a frequently asked question, we will allow phone bidding for this live auction as it is such a unique and valuable collectible. If you cannot make it in person please feel free to contact [email protected] to learn about remote participation. We hope to see you there!

Over $1 million!

See that big number up there? That’s what we here at Child’s Play call “incredible.” It’s breaking the million dollar mark before December even rolls around, and it means we’re halfway to our goal!

We’re about the two weeks away from our annual Dinner Auction shindig, and tickets are just about sold out. If you want to come see some incredible items (original art, one-of-a-kind collectibles, gadgets and more), have a swanky evening with delicious food and great company, buy your tickets now.

Like we said, $1,015,000 is incredible, but we’re going for $2,000,000, and groups like Desert Bus for Hope are helping us get there (along with tons of fantastic community and corporate support). The Desert Bus folks are on Day 5, Bussin’ strong, and have raised an absolutely jaw-dropping $275,000 with roughly a day to go.
