Penny Arcade's Child's Play Charity Auction Brings in $200K

December 12, 2008 -

This week's Child's Play Charity Auction Dinner raised more than $200,000 for worthy causes, reports Gabe of Penny Arcade.

Among the items auctioned off was the rather impressive statue at left depicting an Orc from World of Warcraft on his mount.

Simply awesome - both the event and the statue...

It actually looks quite small, about 3-4 times the size of a Games Workshop Orc Boar-Rider, which it looks very much like (being an Orc on a Warg(?), this is hardly surprising).

Re: Penny Arcade's Child's Play Charity Auction Brings in $200K

They've raised nearly an entire million all together.  It's pretty impressive, all economic things considered.

Slightly more than eleven dollars.

Re: Penny Arcade's Child's Play Charity Auction Brings in $200K

One thing you forgot to mention Dennis was that the statue did have a pretty heavy bidding war...

With Gabe winning it in the end.

The guys over at penny arcade have done so much good they could go around randomly beating up homeless people and would still be viewed as great guys to the general public.

Re: Penny Arcade's Child's Play Charity Auction Brings in $200K

Wait.  Are you implying that beating up random homeless people is a bad thing?

Should I not be doing that?

Re: Penny Arcade's Child's Play Charity Auction Brings in $200K

These murder simulators are teaching our kids to go around beating up homeless people!

I thought that was Bumfight...?

Mattsworknamehe's not needed, not in the modern world, not in a world where more people attend the LOL finals for 5 million, then attend your average sports event.04/28/2015 - 8:12am
MattsworknameFunny that Colin Cowherd is so out of the times, he had to try multiple times to get the names of the games right. People like him are anachronisms.04/28/2015 - 8:10am

Matthew Wilson@AE I know I was just stating where I stand on issues like that in general04/27/2015 - 8:12pm
Andrew EisenWho, Colin Cowherd? No one's suggesting he should be forced out. Or that he should commentate on video games.04/27/2015 - 8:10pm
Matthew Wilson@AE I do not think he should be forced ou though. he has his right to his opinion and shouldnt be forced out because people disagree with it.04/27/2015 - 8:07pm

MontePerhaps they should just add a donation system for creators like the monthly pateron model. Only those who regularly make quality content can get compensated while those who would abuse the system are ignored04/27/2015 - 7:46pm
MontePaid mods is not a bad idea; i mean its only fair that makers be compensated and even better if they can do it full time. UNfortunatly there is too much that can go wrong and room for abuse04/27/2015 - 7:44pm
Andrew EisenYeah, working on that story now. Or rather, I'm working on finding time to write up that story.04/27/2015 - 7:40pm

Matthew WilsonI do not think it will be the last time we see this. btw I am ok with paid mods.04/27/2015 - 7:10pm

Matthew Wilson@zippy there is no way they are going to merge with capcom becouse both companies are not in good shape. sony, Nintendo, and square are the only companies with enough money to pull it off in japan.04/27/2015 - 4:27pm
