Christmas is a time for giving, and on Saturday the 8th December, 2012, Bay City will be hosting their annual Christmas Tree Lighting and fundraiser.
The event will feature music from Grace McDunnough, GoSpeed Racer and Bluemonk Rau, a skating party and silent auction.
The silent auction will feature many unique – and possibly exclusive – items, with all proceeds from the auction going directly to Child’s Play, as will all donations made throughout the event.
The event kicks-off at 13:00 on Saturday 8th December, 2012, and will run through until 16:00, at the Bay City Fairgrounds in North Channel.
If you are a content creator and would like to donate something to the silent auction, please contact Marianne McCann or Ever Dreamscape in-world at the earliest opportunity.
About Child’s Play
Child’s Play is a US-based (501c3 registered non-profit organisation), global game industry charity. It is dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games distributed to a network of over 70 hospitals worldwide. Founded in 2003, Child’s Play operates in two ways:
- Working with staff at the hospitals in the network, it establishes gift wish lists of video games, toys, books and other fun stuff for kids. Those wishing to support the organisation can click on any hospital in the charity’s location map, view the wish list for that hospital and send a gift
- Via donations made directly to the charity, which are used to purchase new games consoles, games, peripherals, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities, allowing children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment, interact with their peers, friends, and family, and can provide vital distraction from an otherwise generally unpleasant experience.
With thanks to Whiskey Monday, for making me aware of this event, and Marianne McCann for supplying the information on the event.
