Chicago For Child's Play
Tuesday, December 9, 2008 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (CST)
What: Gaming, drinking, and prize-winning - all for a great cause!
Since 2003, over 100,000 gamers worldwide have banded together through Child’s Play, a community based charity grown and nurtured from the game culture and industry. Over two million dollars in donations of toys, games, books and cash for sick kids in children’s hospitals across North America and the world have been collected since the inception of Child's Play.
• We're going to have a Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe tournament - so practice your Kombos, Freefall Kombat, and Klose Kombat skills!
• Drink some of Chicago's finest beers! And hard liquors! And wine!
• In addition to the drinks and games, we'll have some raffle prizes! You can get additional raffle tickets are $10 each, and your admission gets you one entry into the raffle.
When: Tuesday, December 9: 7PM - 10PM
