Pink Day in LA 2012[edit]

October 20th 12pm - 6pm (CDT)

It is that wonderful time of year again when we gather together in-game and get in touch with our Pink Sides! (For a great cause!)

This time around we have a lot going on, so read on for more details!

What Is Pink Day in LA?[edit]

Pink Day in LA is a charity fundraising event, hosted within the game of Guild Wars, and with the release of Guild Wars 2, it too will see some pink love! The aim of the event is to raise support and awareness for breast cancer during the month of October (breast cancer awareness month). The event is currently supported and organised by the Gaming World Entertainment Network and Gamers Giving Back.

Pink Day in LA History[edit]

"On June 16th, 2007, the first Pink Day in LA took place in the international districts of Lion's Arch which was full of players in different armor sets all dyed a different shade of pink."

— pinkday.gamergivingback.com

The first Pink Day in LA took place on June 16th 2007 and was followed up with an event in 2008. The original organisers could not commit to hosting the event in 2009. In 2010 GW-EN and Gamer's Giving Back revived the event and raised over $11,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society, surpassing the original goal of $1,337. This was only achieved due to the generosity, support, and awesomeness of the Guild Wars community.

What happens during the event?[edit]

First and foremost, everyone wears pink!

In 2010, ArenaNet added the pink dye vendor Rosa Salvitas especially for the event. We hope she will make a third appearance for this year's event!

This year is a special one as ArenaNet has successfully launched Guild Wars 2 and while I'm sure everyone will be playing it, we will be in BOTH Guild Wars 1 AND Guild Wars 2!

Listen to the event stream[1] and join the events in Lion's Arch. Details at Pink Day's website[2]

Guild Wars 1[edit]

We will have up to 3 International districts of Lion's Arch dedicated to this year's event!

Each district will have in-game trivia and catering for all those with a sweet tooth or a mighty thirst!

As always, for answering trivia correctly you can win a number of goodies from the game, including but not limited to:

  • Rare Minipets
  • Ectos
  • Z-keys
  • Full Armor Sets
  • Armor Remnants
  • Hall of Monument Weapons
  • Title Track Consumables
  • And more!

Guild Wars 2[edit]

Since GW 2 is so new and guesting has not be implemented yet, we have come up with a strategy to make sure that everyone can participate to the fullest. We really want people to be able to participate. So, we have a possible 9 servers that are prepared to be hosted for the actual in-game event. Details are as follows*
