Movember Charity Poker Night a Great Success

Centre for Digital Media’s annual Know When To Mo Them charity poker and silent auction event was a great success! We are very grateful to our sponsors Annex Pro and Roadhouse Interactive for providing the food and beverages, keeping everyone fuelled and happy throughout the evening. We are also very grateful to Microsoft and EA for their generous prizes and silent auction item donations.

Master of Digital Media students, staff and faculty mingled with CDM’s industry partners from companies such as Hothead Games, Kabam, Blackbird Interactive, Roadhouse Interactive and V7 Entertainment, while supporting Movember fundraising efforts.

3rd Place: Richard Smith, MDM Director

2nd Place: Jahan Zeb, MDM Cohort 7 student

"I am very proud of all the support the MDM team and industry put in to make this event an annual tradition," said Dennis Chenard, Director of Industry Relations & Poker Tournament Director.

In addition to supporting a great cause the event provides a great opportunity to network and share a few laughs with our industry friends and partners. It takes a fair amount of volunteer time and effort from the team and students to pull this event off and I am very thankful to everyone who contributed.

The Masters of Digital Moustache group has raised over $1600 (so far) in this year's fundraising efforts. We are still accepting donations. You can donate here.
