Today marks the launch of the 2012 Child’s Play fundraising season; our 9th annual drive to send video games, toys, movies, and more to our worldwide network of children’s hospitals. Thanks to the amazing community fundraisers, corporate sponsors, attendees of our annual golf tournament and all of our Child’s Play supporters, we have already raised over $300,000 this year! Moving into the holiday season we are reminded of what an amazingly generous community we’re a part of, so sincerest thanks to everyone that has contributed to such a strong start.
As the holidays draw near, so does our annual Dinner Auction, which will be held on December 6th at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue, WA. Tickets for both individual and sponsored tables are available now. If you’re not familiar with the event, it’s a formal dinner and silent/live auction that features incredible game memorabilia, art, geeky crafts, world class replicas, and more. You can check out photos of last years’ event here.
If you’re interested in contributing, we’d love to hear from you- we’re currently accepting items for both our silent and live auctions. Email Jamie ([email protected]) for more information on how to donate or any questions about contributions.

Child’s Play is pleased to invite game industry members and fans alike to the second annual Child’s Play Invitational Golf Tournament!

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.
