As the game industry gathers for the Game Developers Conference next week, organizers want to quickly remind attendees that annual game industry fundraising gala, Nite to Unite is being held alongside GDC -- and GDC passholders are eligible to buy tickets at a discount rate!
This year Nite to Unite is being hosted next Tuesday evening, March 15th at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco by the ESA Foundation.
The ESA Foundation, of course, is a charitable arm of the video game industry, awarding scholarships to women and minorities pursuing degrees related to the industry as well as making grants to non-profit organizations that use video game technology in the furtherance of their mission.
GDC All Access pass holders can contact ESA Foundation representative Catherine Brack at 202-253-3761 or [email protected] to purchase a discounted ticket. Nite to Unite begins with a 5:30 pm networking reception and silent auction, followed by a seated dinner, a brief awards program and a live auction featuring amazing prizes.
The event is a notable effort to celebrate the industry's continuing growth and success while helping to make a difference in the lives of America's youth. More information, including ticketing and sponsorship, is available over on the Nite to Unite website.
And of course, there will be lots of other events, interactive spaces and talks taking place at the conference. For more details on all announced talks and to start planning out your GDC week, make sure to check out the GDC 2016 Session Scheduler.
GDC 2016 itself will take place March 14-18th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For more information on GDC 2016, visit the show's official website, or subscribe to regular updates via Facebook, Twitter, or RSS.
Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Tech.
