The charity non-profit organization Gamers Outreach Foundation will hold its next fundraising event at the Briarwood Mall in Ann Arbor, Michigan on May 1.
This is the third annual installment of the event—called Gamers for Giving—and will feature videogame competitions, including a 2 vs 2 Halo 3 tournament and a 4 vs 4 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 tournament, along with free play gaming areas, game industry special guests, raffles and the ability to take on a pro-gamer. The event will run from 10:00 AM through 9:00 PM.
Proceeds from the event will be used to continue the Gamers Outreach Foundation’s funding of portable videogame kiosks used by patients at the Mott Children’s Hospital, and to back the group’s Fun For Our Troops initiative, which sends videogame care packages to U.S. soldiers stationed overseas. The Gamers Out Reach Foundation hopes to raise $30,000 in total this year.
Those wishing to participate in the gaming tournaments should register on the event’s webpage.
