What is the MS Toga Party?
Toga Party for MS is a charity fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis care and research, happening on both EU & NA servers in GW2, with a 10-year history going back to GW1!
The event will be on Saturday, May 11, with the official kickoff at 19:00 CEST, with hours of fun events and activities, cool prizes, and on-air legendary giveaways!
On EU side, we are also going to be doing some pre-events, starting at 16:00 CEST, to get everyone into the party mood!
You can drop in at any time during the event to hang out or join the next activity, or you can stick around throughout the entire event for maximum fun & prizes!
How to join?
To join the event, keep an eye out on LFG, or join by connecting to one of the hosts' voice platforms, where they'll help you get into the right map!
Since the Toga Party happens simultaneously on EU and NA, EU hosts might organise some pre-events or other activities to compensate for the evening start, so keep an eye out for any afternoon events!
Host information will be announced here after the final volunteer meeting on April 27th!
We are fundraising for the MS Society of Canada, and the money will go to international research grants! You can find the fundraiser here: http://mssoc.convio.net/goto/toga19

During the event, there'll be tons of activities where players can compete for prizes, and there'll be some legendary on-air giveaways, and tons of fun stuff to do!
The activities during the event will be taking place in Divinity's Reach, as well as certain starter areas. Our coordinators will be leading the event in squad chat as well as in voice, and regularly communicating any necessary info in other chat channels!
Participation is open to everyone, including free-to-play and low-level players, and there are no specific prerequisites for joining!
What better way to celebrate the onset of warm temperatures than to have a fun water balloon fight? The Balloon Brawl is a fun free-for all battle that anyone can participate in!
The Tonic Race will test your racing skill on equal footing - no mounts, no special abilities, just you, transformed into something adorable, and the wide open world! Note that tonics will be provided!
Our longest-running event, Fashion Wars is truly an all-time favorite. Bring your best, most original, creative, dramatic, or fun looks to the runway, and please the judges! This year's theme: Orange is the New Black!
The Scavenger Hunt tests your speed as well as your wit! Participants will receive a number of hints about various locations, people, or indeed objects that they must locate, and then it's just a matter of piecing it all together!
And many more!
In addition to the four main events, there will also be a plethora of smaller, fun activities, on-air prize giveaways, and other fun events and mini-games!
