We’re looking forward to celebrating our 13th annual Gamers for Giving event with everyone this coming weekend. Our team’s been hard at work piecing together a wonderful virtual event alongside a number of incredible streamers!
While we were all hoping to return to the EMU Convocation Center this year, it was obvious COVID-19 restrictions were going to stay in place for the foreseeable future. As much as we’d like to celebrate in-person, we want to be mindful of public health guidelines and ensure everyone is safe.
This year’s virtual fundraiser is supported by a number of thoughtful and generous partners. Their sponsorship has provided a major boost to our fundraising efforts. That means we’ll be able to deliver more gaming experiences to hospitalized kids!
