Tech Aide, the Montreal tech community’s holiday charity organization, will hold a Game Night at Ubisoft World on Wednesday November 28 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM.
A ticket will include two free drinks, various small snacks and shuttle buses will run return trips from Notman House (51 Sherbrooke St. W).
According to Real Ventures’ Nicole Lai, the event will include a VR maze, e-sports, a VR escape room, and video games. Ubisoft Word is an interactive entertainment centre that combines art and technology.
For video games, the night will include 10 video game stations and four arcade game stations.
For virtual reality, folks can explore “new intense thrills and immerse yourself in new worlds and beyond with games in Virtual Reality, in multiplayers, by team or solo: eight simulation seats of Virtual Reality for Eagle flight matches, 12 Virtual Reality game stations and two immersive Mazes in Virtual Reality.
Initiated by the OSMO foundation, Tech Aide was created in order to give back to Centraide and “help break the cycle of poverty and social exclusion in Greater Montreal.”
The initiative was started by OSMO/Real Ventures cofounder Alan MacIntosh and UBS Securties’ Head of Investment Banking, Alain Auclair, both who both saw first hand the lack of connection between the tech and social worlds. They wanted to see thriving tech entrepreneurs working side by side with community agencies to help Montrealers in need.
Last year, TechAide teamed up with Google to organize a Games Night which raised $12,000 for Centraide.
Tickets cost $100 and can be purchased here.
Ubisoft World is located at 2315 Transcanadien road, Pointe-Claire, Quebec H9R 5Z5
