Gifts for Domestic Violence Shelters

Our newest program is our domestic violence shelter program, benefiting over 100 facilities nationwide including advocacy centers, long term and short term shelters. A lot of the work that we do with the shelters is kept anonymous, but we wanted to share this fun care package with you that is being sent to the shelters to benefit the kids and families there. This is in addition to the cart and games - just a special above-and-beyond gift. Thanks to generous donors, we’re able to provide every shelter with this awesome haul of board games and toys to brighten the lives of children who are otherwise going through a difficult and challenging time.

Games for shelters

They will receive:
Ticket to Ride
Dragon Whisperer
Castelan Red
Castelan Blue
Cthulhu Dice
Trophy Buck
Plush toys

It’s all possible thanks to you, our donors and community, who make such an incredible impact in the lives of kids in domestic violence shelters and hospitals through supporting Child’s Play. Gamers give back and make a difference - donate today!

As a reminder, our golf tournament is two weeks away and there are still tickets available for golfers, mini-golfers, and spectators! Join us at beautiful Willows Run to enjoy a day on the links for the kids on July 17th, 2015.

Our now time-honored tradition of argyle socks, impressive (or not-so-impressive) shots, and raising money for the kids is going to be held at the beautiful Willows Run golf course on Friday July 17th, 2015. Your day includes a awesome shotgun-style golfing, boxed lunch, and participation in our post-game BBQ and mixer with the mini-golfers and spectators. If you’re visiting from afar, we have club rentals available too! We’d love to have you out. Get your tickets for golf here.

If you’re an experienced golfer or more attuned to the “windmills and water obstacles” speed, we’ve got you covered. We’re also holding a mini-golf tournament the same day! Everyone will wrap up together and enjoy a post-game mixer and BBQ to brag about the most (or least) impressive shots of the day. Get your mini-golf tickets here.

Prefer to lounge in the shade and politely clap (or chuckle) as the golfers do their thing? Sounds like spectator seating is right up your alley, and never fear - we have you covered. A lovely section of the 18th hole is tucked away with seating, a bar, shade, and a perfect view of the day’s activities. Wrap up the day with both the golfers and mini-golfers at the post-game mixer and BBQ. Get your spectator seating here!

If your company would like to be represented at the Child’s Play invitational, or if you have any general questions about the event, please feel free to contact event coordinator Jamie Dillion ( We’ll see you on the course!
