FTW Events Announces Inaugural Pre-PAX Charity Gaming Event Event proceeds to be donated to Seattle Children’s Hospital
FTW Events announced today their Inaugural Pre-PAX Gaming for Charity event, to be held on September 1st at the top of the Colombia Tower—the tallest skyscraper in Seattle and the highest publicly accessible point west of the Mississippi River.
Attendees will receive a gourmet meal, drinks, and the opportunity to win prizes from a massive selection donated by publishers. Access a pop-up game store and a huge selection of demo games will be supplied by one of Seattle’s premier friendly local game stores, Card Kingdom. Also in attendance will be celebrity game designers like James Ernest and publishers such as Calliope Games and Cheapass Games. Giant versions of both Tsuro and Tak will be available for play after dinner.
This will be FTW Events founder Matt Winberry’s fifth such fundraiser. His last event, held in April 2016, raised thousands of dollars for the Imagine Guild (Children’s Hospital).
“I’m always humbled by the level of support the gaming community grants events like this,” says Winberry. “We look forward to raising money to care for the next generation of gamers.”
