Dallas for Child's Play Event 2011

Already thinking about this year's event. Hopefully we're gonna do it bigger and better than last year. I mean, this is Texas after all. Got some improv troops in mind for entertainment purposes and a MUCH bigger stage. If you have any suggestions, whether it be comedy, act, or venue-wise, please feel free to let me know!

What a Year!

Congrats to Child's Play! This year, we (as a whole...not just the show) raised $2,294,317.53! That's a LOT of money and I want to thank everyone who donated to the show. Thanks so much!

The current plan is to do this again, with a bigger venue and awesome comics. See you in December!

Tomorrow Night

Well, it's almost here. TOMORROW NIGHT. Bring out all your friends and family to the Opening Bell Coffee House and help us raise money so kids in children's hospitals can have a great Christmas. And really this is a gift that keeps giving cause the money you donate will be used to buy games, toys and books that the children can use year-round.

So far, Child's Play has raised over $1,430,000 this year alone. They have broke their own donation bar, and I want to break ours over to the right. If you can't come to the show, you can donate $5 by texting GAMERS to 50555, or you can buy the Humble Indie Bundle with proceeds going to Child's Play.

Look forward to seeing you there!

Breaking the $1 Million Mark

I was so excited about the show on Friday and all our awesome prizes that I forgot to say that Child's Play broke $1 million on the 10th! Considering how hard times are and all the worries most of us had, that's really exciting. And thanks to all the people that have donated so far! We just hit the $50 mark, but Dallas was named the 4th most generous city in the US (actual news, not fake) so I know lots of people will be there this Friday. Hope to see you there!

New Raffle Prizes

We got some extra raffle prizes for the show this (yes, THIS!) Friday!

Are you having issues with villains stealing your cookies? You have two options....move out of Metropolis, or hides your cookies in this Superman cookie jar. If Superman is stealing your cookies, that's another problem you'll have to solve on your own time. BTW, thank you to Lonestar Comics in Plano!  

Not nerdy enough for you? We also have a collector metal sign of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. What would you do with such an item? Make your living room make Ben Hur look like and epic for starters.
Not enough, you say? Never fear, we've got more! We had someone donate in pristine cellophaned condition  Family Guy Volume 4 (not to be confused with SEASON 4....long story you should look up on Wikipedia). Here is a picture as proof.

Maybe you're not a nerd and/or you're hungry. You're in luck! Thanks to the Frisco Buffalo Wild Wings, we're going to raffle off a $20 gift card. Do you know how many boneless wings you can get on Fifty Cent Boneless Wing Night on Thursdays? Yes. And some beer.

We have a couple of prizes that people are creating ESPECIALLY for us that I can't put up yet. But come out to the show, raffle tickets will be $5 a piece, and help us raise money for some sick kids!
