First and foremost, we’d like to send a big THANK YOU to Sean Farrell and Dan Philibin, who volunteered their time and talents to design this new website for us. Props guys!

Gamers for Giving 2014 will take place on February 8th and 9th within the Eastern Michigan University Student Center. We’ll once again be teaming up with the Intel LANFest series and the student government of Eastern Michigan University to bring you a weekend of competitive gaming & LAN activities for console and PC gamers alike!

Since its inception in 2008, Gamers for Giving has become one of the premier gaming events in the Midwest. In short, Gamers for Giving is a competitive video game tournament combined with a BYOC (bring your own computer/console) LAN party. Proceeds from the event’s activities are used to fund charity initiatives managed by Gamers Outreach Foundation, such as building portable gaming carts for children’s hospitals, and sending video game care packages to U.S. troops overseas. The event provides video game enthusiasts with an opportunity to combine passion for gaming with charitable action.
