Video Game Industry teams up to hold Halloween Fundraiser

A group of volunteers from the gaming industry are teaming up to host Vancouver’s first annual Ghoulash Bash, a Halloween fundraiser to benefit the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. The event is being promoted as an opportunity to raise money and awareness of the GVFBS and will take place on October 29th at the Metropole Pub at 320 Abbott Street.

The theme of this year’s Ghoulash Bash is “Retro ReAnimated”. Guests are encouraged to come dressed up as their favourite “retro” video game character – zombified. Activities will include a retro game costume contest, prize giveaways, retro game competitions and networking opportunities. Partygoers will have opportunities to win prizes contributed by video game companies, including 1-hour mentorship sessions donated by influential members of the game industry, such as Genius Factor Games’ Ted Nugent and Ross Young, Cowbell Games’ James Johnson as well as Industry veteran Adrian Crook.
