Child's Play Gala Raises $350k

During a recent black tie event held on behalf of Child's Play, a charitable organization dedicated to bringing gaming joy to sick children, over $350,000 was raised through ticket purchases and an event auction.

The Child’s Play Gala and Auction is one of the highlights of the annual Child’s Play Charity fundraising drive that donates toys, games and cash for hospitalized kids.  At the black-tie event the gaming community bids on rare and unique items.  Some of the stand out items from the auction included the life-sized Half-Life Gravity Gun that went for $21,000 and one of the rarest video games on the planet, the Nintendo World Championships Grey #60 that went for $11,500.  A lucky bidder also won a guest starring role in a Penny Arcade strip for $10,000.

To date in 2011, Child's Play has raised over $1.5 million dollars.
