The Child’s Play 2011 Holiday Season officially launches today, and we have a lot of exciting news to share! You may have already noticed that our website has been redesigned. If you’re new to Child’s Play, read up on what we’re all about. Our Donate page includes a brand new hospital map, complete with wish lists updated for the 2011 season. You can also head over to the Events page to view our event calendar, submit your own event for the calendar, or get more information about running a Child’s Play fundraiser.
Speaking of fundraisers, we are proud to announce that the annual Child’s Play charity auction will take place on Thursday, December 8th 2011 at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA. Tickets are on sale now, with both individual and group tickets avaliable. Passes are $145 per person and $5,000 for table of 10. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.
If you have an item that you would like to donate, we are currently open to submissions for the auction. Whether it’s rare or unique game memorabilia, great geeky art or even something for the non-gamers in the crowd, we would greatly appreciate your donation. Please get in touch with Jamie for more information regarding auction item donations. We are asking that all items are in our hands by December 1st.
