The details for one of the most known community-driven ingame GW1 events, Pink Day in LA, was just released earlier today . Below is a full repost of the announcement (with permission).
Its time to get excited about Pink and finding a cure for Cancer! While we are specifically keeping Breast Cancer Research in mind, October is Cancer Awareness Month! With that, we have some exciting plans for Pink Day in La this year!
First off! Click the logo above to check out our official website at:http://pinkday.gw-en.com/
Now, let's talk about INGAME!
So far we have 15 Sponsored Districts!!! ( WHOOOO!!!!*crowds go crazy*) Thanks to fantastic volunteers from the community! If you want to join our crazy crew of volunteers, please head to the volunteer thread on this forum for more information! Our next meeting in September 24th! We really took into consideration the fact that 33 districts spawned last year, so we don't want anyone to feel "Left out!" \o/
The districts are hosted as follows, but might change as the date gets closer! (and as we add more districts!)
**The first 6 districts are GWEN Staff supported and friends of the crew, however this does not mean that we will be the only groups with tons of giveaways! You DO NOT need to be in district 1 to experience all of the fun! Each district will be doing 24 trivia questions at the same time through the 6 hours.**
