Peggle 2 & Gamers for Giving

Resident Englishman and truly a Sunflower in all of our hearts, Rowland is back with news from the world of Peggle 2.

Gamers for Giving 2014 is holding a Peggle 2 tournament this weekend, with a very impressive trophy for the winner. Who or what is Gamers for Giving, you may be asking?

Gamers for Giving is a competitive gaming tournament/LAN party that helps generate resources and awareness for the initiatives of Gamers Outreach Foundation. The next event will take place at the Grand Ballroom of Eastern Michigan University’s Student Center the weekend of February 8 & 9, 2014. Gamers for Giving is a nonstop gaming marathon which begins in the morning hours of Saturday, February 8 and lasts until the evening of Sunday, February 9.

Sponsors help cover overhead costs associated with hosting the event so that attendee entry fees and donations can be used strictly for the programs of the charity. Funds raised from previous events have helped build portable gaming carts for children in hospitals and send video game care packages to U.S. troops overseas.

The goal is to raise $20,000 to help kick off Gamers Outreach Foundation’s charity programs in 2014 by hosting a great event for its supporters. Gamers for Giving is a welcoming, friendly environment where gamers can come together to play their favorite video games in a clean, social and competitive atmosphere. Simply by participating, gamers are making a positive impact in people’s lives through resources generated by the event.

There will be live streams to enjoy even if you cannot make it to the event, and you can find out more here:
