Spiel-a-thon raises $1,800+ at BGG Con

By sconway - Posted on 22 November 2010

The 2010 Spiel-a-thon was a resounding success.

We raised over $1,800! A tremendous THANK YOU to everyone who donated. We truly appreciate your generous support.

This financial contribution will allow us to purchase even more 5-game bundles for childrens' hospitals and senior centers over the coming year.

In addition to thanking Aldie and Derk for making us feel so welcome, we need to thank the entire BGG Con staff and specifically John and Lainie Theys for their helpful, friendly, tireless assistance coordinating the event on-site. They truly went above and beyond the call of duty.

The amazing prize bundle was provided from the generous support of many game publishers and vendors at the con, including: Z-Man Games, Days of Wonder, Gary Games, Plaid Hat Games, AEG, Wattsalpoag, Gryphon Games, Steve Jackson Games, and Funagain Games.

It's very exciting to see how generous and giving the gaming community can be! We're already planning ways to make next year's event even better.

In the meantime, though, we welcome donations to the Spiel Foundation any time, any amount, throughout the year. If you want to help us give more games to kids and seniors in need, simply follow the link provided below:

Hope to see lots of people next year at Spiel-a-thon 2011!
