FTW Events, Calliope Games and Cheapass Games are proud to present the Night of Gaming for Good on Top of the World, PAX Edition, benefiting The Imagine Guild for Seattle Children's Hospital! Taking place on the top floor of Seattle's iconic and exclusive Columbia Tower, it's an event you won't want to miss.
We are excited to welcome legendary fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss and game designer Gaby "Gabberywocky" Weidling as our guests of honor!
Join us for an evening with the gaming community to celebrate and play games we love, partake in fine dining, enjoy Top of the World views, and win gaming raffle prizes. All to support a great cause: our beneficiary, the Imagine Guild, supports the Seattle Children’s Hospital, Uncompensated Care program.
When: Friday, August 31st, 6:00 PM - 1:00 AM
This is Friday night during PAX West weekend, though you do not need to attend PAX to join us. However, PAX-goers can consider this a great after-party!
Where: Seattle's Columbia Tower Club, 701 5th Avenue, 76th Floor
This is the highest (publicly accessible) floor west of the Mississippi River!
Come for the Cause
There are a number of reasons to attend, but chief among them is that we'll be gaming for good. The Uncompensated Care program eases the financial burden on parents at Seattle Children's Hospital, allowing them to focus on the most important thing: their child’s health. With today’s unstable healthcare climate, the vulnerable families and kids supported by this program need our assistance more than ever.
Come for the Games
Meet and pick through the brains of game designers while playing the games they've created! Play all night from our extensive lending library, with a variety of games to suit many tastes and play styles. TYou are also welcome to BYOG or purchase one with vouchers to our pop-up game store. You might even win a game from our raffle, with thousands of dollars worth of gaming and geeky prizes, all generously donated by members of the gaming industry and community!
Come for the Party
This event promises an incredible evening of gaming and fundraising with the amazing backdrop of the Seattle skyline and sunset from 76 floors up.
