The ESA Foundation’s annual “Nite to Unite For Kids” benefit dinner and public online auction has raised almost $900,000 to benefit children’s charities. Held last week in San Francisco, the seventh annual event featured performances by comics Dana Carvey and Robin Williams, and brought the total funds raised by the ESA Foundation for children's charities over the years to more than $6 million. Attendees bid on a variety of items ranging from autographed memorabilia, wine, and trips across America. In addition, members of the public were able to bid on game memorabilia through an online auction on eBay. This year, funds raised by the ESA Foundation will benefit Web Wise Kids, National Students Against Violence Everywhere, and the Association of Hole in the Wall Camps. Also at the dinner, William “Bing” Gordon, executive vice president and chief creative officer of Electronic Arts, received the 2004 Champions Award in recognition of his outstanding service and contributions to the industry.
