We did it!
The dawning of a new day sees me sipping coffee, contemplating roti for lunch, and looking back over last night's amazing event, analysing just precisely how awesome it was.
Spoiler alert: it was EPICALLY awesome!
The attendees were blown away with the prize stash, the auction items, and all the other things on offer.
The standout round of the night was Truth by Consensus, wherein tables were presented with and either/or question - for example, Terminator 2 or Aliens, Best ninja turtle - and whichever answer was chosen by the most tables became the right answer. The reactions from the attendees were marvellous and passionate. And they were clearly all insane, because the room chose Terminator 2 over Aliens. Madness.
All of the auctions went really well. with the SDCC Devastator and a 15 year limited edition Pinny Arcade pin being hotly contested.
I realise by now you're all yelling at me for burying the lead, so I'll come out and say it. We didn't equal our target of funds raised from last year, we didn't even just beat it, we smashed it. All together, we raised $5720!
This is an awesome result, and we literally couldn't have done it without the support of our amazing sponsors, dedicated admin and org team, and all of our tops attendees. You're all amazing.
Thanks hugely once more for you collective and inidividual fabulousness, and we're already looking forward to CPT Aus 2016!
