Digital Extremes has announced that Covenant House Toronto will be their partnered charity for the upcoming TennoCon 2017. The charity provides services for at-risk, homeless, and trafficked youth, offering crisis shelters, transitional housing, and other services like education and employment assistance.
TennoCon 2017 and Covenant House Toronto
Returning to London, Ontario, Canada, The second annual TennoCon will follow suit with the first, providing fans of Warframe with a full day convention that allows many players to meet in the real world for the first time. Last year, via ticket sales, TennoCon was able to raise $74,000 for Outward Bound Canada. This year, independent developer Digital Extremes hopes to double that amount for Covenant House Toronto.
Covenant House Toronto is Canada’s largest homeless youth agency. Since 1982, the organization has provided shelter for at-risk and homeless youth, as well as a wealth of other services. Digital Extremes’ Vice President of Publishing, Meredith Braun, states that Covenant House Toronto is an “execution-focused” charity that makes “a noticeable difference” in its community. According to their website, the organization’s dedicated efforts have helped over 90,000 at-risk youth.
Currently, around half of the available tickets for TennoCon 2017 in Ontario have already been sold. For Warframe fans that are unable to attend the conference in person, Digital Extremes is also offering a Digital Pack. Pre-orders for these in-game packs began earlier today, offering players an alternate way to celebrate TennoCon. The Digital Pack includes a special TennoCon glyph and landing craft decoration, and more functionally, 370 platinum. Those who purchase the pack are also automatically entered in to a drawing for 100,000 platinum. In addition, purchasing the Digital Pack will unlock the TennoCon Relay exclusively for the day of the event.
TennoCon 2017 will take place on July 8th, 2017, at the London Convention Centre in London, Ontario. For more information, and to purchase tickets or the Digital Pack, visit the official website for the event.
