Gamers for Giving Raises Funds for Children's Hospitals

 - Mar 20, 2019
Raising money for a good cause is always a noble task, but Gamers for Giving, is demonstrating just how fun, creative and competitive charity initiatives can be.

The weekend-long tournament is credited with being one of the largest independent LAN parties in the United States, with a goal of raising money to support hospitalized children. This year, funds from the event will be donated in support of charities that provide entertainment devices to children's hospitals. This year's donation goal is $500,000, and according to the competition's website, Gamers for Giving hopes its funds will help to "heal through interactive play."

This year's event is taking place at the Eastern Michigan University Convocation Center, between March 23rd and 24th.
