Games for Hope – 28 April 2011 – Toronto

Event info: “Games for Hope”
Location: The Garrison 1197 Dundas St. WDoors open at 7PM
Cost: Donations of any amount are accepted at the door

On April 28th, Toronto Gamers, Boris Pan (aka: Brainfire)  and Julie Ford are hosting  “Games for Hope” at The Garrison in downtown Toronto.

“Games for Hope” is a video gaming fund raising event dedicated to contributing videogaming equipment and games for children to enjoy who might otherwise not be able to.   This year, they are raising funds for The Darling Home for Kids.

The inspiration for this event comes from a charity known as Child’s Play.   Brainfire states that he has quite a lot of admiration for Child’s Play.

As a life-long gamer, when I was thinking of ways to make a difference in my community, I looked at Child’s Play and got inspired to do something that would benefit kids while creating a evening of entertainment and fun.

“The event is all about video games.   Sony Canada has been so generous in lending us 8 kiosks with a variety of games including a couple of consoles dedicated to the Playstation Move.   We’re also going to be showcasing the just-released Mortal Kombat game on the Playstation 3 with a tournament and prizes to the winners.” – Boris Pan

Eclectic Groove DJ’s, Kris and gl.itch will be spinning throughout the evening and the Brainfire wants us to know that there will be other goodies and surprises they are keeping to ourselves.

I guess we will just have to head down to check it out for ourselves.  It sounds like a great evening out for gamers in the Toronto community, definitely head down for some fun and support a great cause.
