Paragon Studios: Dinner's on Us!

Current total: $1045 as of 19:02 GMT Sept 13

Success!!!

We've met our funding goal! In fact, before I could get the widget shut down, we overshot it by a little! I'll call the restaurant and make arrangements today as well as notify the staff of Paragon Studios to put on their eatin' hats. This is incredible. I honestly thought that it would take at least a couple of days, but this fundraiser lasted less than three hours. This is HUGE, folks, and I really appreciate your participation! Because we met our goal so quickly, if you didn't get a chance to donate, please know that this is going to be presented on behalf of the whole City of Heroes community. --TonyV 19:07, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Hey all, we'd like to treat the staff of Paragon Studios to dinner, courtesy of the City of Heroes community. At one of the Player Summits, one of the devs told me of a restaurant near the studio where the staff goes sometimes for occasions. This rally is to raise enough money to cover the bill for them to meet there again. But this time, the City of Heroes community is covering the bill!

We want to express our gratitude for building the world in which our imaginations have lived. They've provided an unprecedented level of support and interactivity over the years. They've talked to us, listened to our feedback, even socialized with us, all the while providing a game that has an incredible level of innovation and fun.

We don't need a lot to meet our goal of buying dinner for the Paragon Studios staff, just 67 of our loyal subscribers donating their monthly VIP fee. However, this token of our gratitude is on behalf of the entire City of Heroes community, and no matter what the future brings, we wish you all our best.
