Beer, Blues & Bingo Part II
DigiBC and Vancouver Social Games (VSG) are kicking off 2018 with the return of Beer, Blues & Bingo on February 6 at the Portside Pub. There will be free entry, along with an open bar and food provided. Doors open at 6pm , bingo kicks off at 7pm with a game every half an hour, and things wrap up at 9pm. More importantly, food and an open bar will be provided. As luck would have it, Portside has just about the best selection of beers and beverages that you could possibly desire! Of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our fabulous event sponsor, Kabam. Get ready for a fantastic night full of networking, prizes, and fun... this ain't your granny's bingo. We hope to see you there! RSVP HERE

MDM Charity Poker Event 2017
The Centre for Digital Media has been hosting their annual charity poker event for 10 years now and last Wednesday (Nov 29) was yet another successful night. We'd like to thank our generous sponsors (AMPD, AnnexPro, Bandai Namco, East Side Games, EA Vancouver, Red Truck Beer, Tailored Spirits, and Telus), as well as congratulate the two finalists who battled it out in the final head to head. MDM alumni, John O'Keane, was the runner-up and DigiBC member, Aaron Mak from Spieltrieb Entertainment, took top honours. The event was put on to help support the Vancouver Food Bank and the CDM virtual food drive donation page is still up and running. They are hoping to break the $2500 mark, so there's still time to make a contribution to this great cause! Donate Here
