ESA Foundation 20th Annual Nite to Unite - For Kids

Nite to Unite (NTU) is an annual gala hosted by the ESA Foundation to celebrate the many ways video games drive positive change in our society and transform lives. This event is incredibly important to ESA members and the entire industry with the proceeds raised going directly into the ESA Foundation’s work.

This year, the ESA Foundation was excited to honor Laila Shabir as the 2018 Visionary Award recipient! Laila is the founder and CEO of LearnDistrict and her pioneering vision to empower young women in STEAM led to the creation of Girls Make Games summer camps and workshops. Learn more about Laila's work here!

Your support is critical for the ESA Foundation to fulfill its mission to award scholarships to aspiring game developers, encourage diversity in STEAM fields and make a difference in the lives of kids through the power of video games and the technologies that power them.
