Each year, EVE Vegas has a track record of raising thousands of dollars for good causes.

Historically we’ve assisted several charities, most notably the Icelandic Children’s Hospital and the Get Well Gamers foundation.

This year we’re incredibly proud to announce that we’ll be supporting AbleGamers with all our EVE Vegas 2017 charity fundraising. This includes the silent auction for Tranquility Server Blades, as well as the annual EVE Vegas raffle, and a new event unique to this year.

Blade Runner 2049 Charity Screening  As part of EVE Vegas 2017, we’re happy to announce that out fundraising efforts will be supplemented by a charity screening of Blade Runner 2049, which premiers during EVE Vegas this year, on October 6th 2017.

A screening of the movie will occur on Sunday, October 8th that will be exclusive to EVE Vegas attendees.

CCP have secured Auditorium #3 at United Artist Showcase Theatre 8, which is over at the Showcase Mall building by the MGM Grand Hotel.

The location seats a total of 288 and is a 22-minute walk away from The Linq, where EVE Vegas 2017 is hosted, but can also be reached quickly by the Las Vegas Monorail, which stops at MGM Grand Station and departs directly from The Linq & Harra’s station at the EVE Vegas Venue.

Event Details:  October 8th, 2017 - United Artist Showcase Theatre 8, Auditorium #3

Published subject to change.

Tickets:  We have several options for tickets that are available for the event, with three levels of support for AbleGamers.

A breakdown of ticket types is below, and you can head on over to Eventbrite to purchase tickets here! (

It's important to note that all proceeds from this screening will be donated to the AbleGamers Charity.

Optional Donations:  Please note these options are NOT ticket purchases for the screening:

We’re very much looking forward to this event at EVE Vegas 2017, and hope that as many of you as possible will join us in support of an amazing charity initiative that assists in allowing those with limited mobility to enjoy video games.
