For the past few years, I've gone down to Dayton, OH around this time to do what amounts to a semi-public house concert. One of the cool things about it is that it's also specifically aimed at gathering toys and games for kids at Dayton's Ronald McDonald House. So, the suggested donation is $10-15 (some of which goes to me, some to the RMcDH), and an unwrapped, non-stuffed toy or game. Classic board games or other activities that sick kids can share with their families are always a good idea.
And, hey! It takes place at a game store: the unbelievably fantastic Epic Loot Games & Comics in Centerville, a bit south of Dayton proper. Seriously, pretty darn good on the comics, and one of the absolute best gaming stores I've ever seen.
I'll start singing about 8:00, and go till, oh, 10:30 or 11:00 or so. We'll be in the big Collectible Card Game room, lotsa seats, and if you feel like bringing some snacks or something potluckish, well, hey. :)
