Join us for the 10th annual Spiel-a-thon!



What is the Spiel-a-thon?

It’s a fundraising event for The Spiel Foundation.

The Spiel Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to donating quality board and card games to children’s hospitals and senior citizen’s centers.

Each year, we assemble bundles of five games and donate these bundles to organizations that fit our mandate.

Each bundle costs at least $70 – 80 including shipping, so your contributions help the Foundation donate more bundles to kids and seniors across the country.

With the money raised from individual donations and from last year's Spiel-a-thons, we are sending out 100 game bundles this year!! That's 500 games!!

You can find out more information on our organization, the games we donate and the locations who receive the games by exploring the site.

When/Where


Friday, November. 18, 1:00 – 4:00 PM Innovation Ballroom

The Event

We’re changing the format for the Spiel-a-thon this year!

No teams or registration needed. Just come and play!

You can play for five minutes and donate a couple dollars or join us all afternoon and help support a great cause!

We’ll have game stations set up in the room with teachers ready to explain and help you play several quick fun games great for players of all ages. You’ll receive a punchcard when you enter the Spiel-a-thon and for every game you play you’ll receive a stamp on your card. For every game you play, you’ll donate $2-3 dollars to the Foundation. The more you play, the more you pay BUT... the more chance you have of winning prizes throughout the event!

There will be random prize drawings during the event for people playing and there will be a final round filled by those who scored the highest over the course of the event. Finalists will compete for their share of a wonderful prize pool donated by several generous game publishers in the industry.

Hope to see many of you at the event. We're hoping for a record turnout!

Spiel on!

Stephen

Ezra you know better, Bounocore is only a celebrity in his own mind. Though we are all just figments of his imagination.

The brilliance of this year's format is that with a large enough contribution, everyone is a celebrity.
