Industry luminaries Will Wright and John Romero are set to host the Independent Game Developers Association’s first annual charity dinner in San Francisco.

The IGDA Foundation event, set to take place November 5, will see the two industry veterans debate and discuss various topics.

Proceeds from the dinner will help support the various charitable projects such as the Eric Dybsand Memorial Scholarship for AI Development, the Accessibility SIG ‘Gamers with Disabilities’ Project, as well as the ‘game preservation’ Romero Archives initiative.

The event takes place in San Francisco Airport Marriott. Tickets are available at $150, or $125 for IGDA members.
