As we prep to host Gamers for Giving 2020 this weekend, our team would like to recognize the extraordinary support we’ve received from our sponsors and partners.
The circumstances surrounding this year’s event are unprecedented. We’re grateful to work with a number of organizations committed to making a difference in the lives of hospitalized children.
Gamers for Giving sponsors provide the necessary resources to cover overhead costs associated with event production. As such – ticket sales, attendee donations, and online contributions are channeled towards benefiting Gamers Outreach programs.
Typically these sponsors activate their support during our LAN party, enhancing the attendee experience through activities and prizing. Given that we’ve shifted to an online format, we plan to recognize our 2020 sponsors during Gamers for Giving 2021 as well.
We’re incredibly grateful to be working with the following groups, and look forward to recognizing them during our online broadcast. Be sure to give them some love on social media. We’ll see you on stream!
