Gamers for Giving is like a music festival. As the hosts, we organize specific headline activities that take place during the event. Beyond those activities, Gamers for Giving is what you make of it. Free play and exhibition gaming occurs throughout the entire duration of the event, and LAN party attendees play whatever games they choose to bring.

The overall schedule of activities can be found below. Please note: the schedule may be subject to change. Be sure to check the Gamers for Giving blogTwitter, and Facebook for updates!
