December 19, 2005 | By Simon Carless




Representatives from the Child's Play Charity have announced that the third annual campaign of the gamer-supported charity has reached over $420,000 following its fundraising dinner auction held in the Seattle area, which generated $82,100 last week.

In addition, the Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool, England has officially joined the growing list of more than 20 participating hospitals. Contributions of new games, toys and other entertainment resources for children to enjoy can still be made at the official Child's Play website.

"A huge thank you goes out to all the individual gamers and corporate sponsors who have already made this year's campaign such a success," said Child's Play's Robert Khoo. "You are making a difference in a lot of children's lives."

The $100 per plate fundraising dinner and auction was held in Seattle and emceed by Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins of the Penny Arcade game-related webcomic. Auction highlights included $20,000 paid for an appearance in a Penny Arcade comic strip, $3,000 for a trip to Iceland to tour the offices of CCP Games, $1,800 for an Xbox 360 Bundle signed by the entire Epic Games Team, $1,500 each for a giant Master Chief statue and a chance to be on X-Play, and $1,000 for a tour of Bungie Studios.
