Celebrate the fourteenth annual Pink Day in LA community event on October 23! Every year, Gamers Giving Back and members of the Guild Wars® and Guild Wars 2 community raise funds to benefit the Canadian Cancer Society’s research to find a cure. Join the party and help support the cause!
Pink Day in LA (Lion’s Arch) began in the original Guild Wars in 2007. Friends within the game and members of the community gathered to remember those who died of cancer, to give hope and encouragement to everyone battling it, and to support their families as well.
During the event, stop by Lion’s Arch in Guild Wars 2 and play minigames like human darts, a tonic jumping puzzle race, and hide-and-seek. You can also participate in a medieval fashion contest and trivia competition for a chance to win fantastic prizes.
How to Participate
Date and Time: October 23, from 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) to 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7)
Location: The city of Lion’s Arch in Guild Wars 2, on NA and EU servers
Organizers will post the map locations 30 minutes prior to the event in the LFG tool for Central Tyria. Join the organizer’s squad and the game will attempt to place you in the instance with the rest of the squad when you enter Lion’s Arch, unless it is full.
