Gamers Outreach Foundation Preps Next Event

April 8, 2010 -

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.

james_fudgeYeah we could go way way back :)12/24/2014 - 12:56pm
E. Zachary KnightCopyright law in general has been broken since at least 1976. Could be even earlier than that.12/24/2014 - 12:24pm
james_fudgeWhat he said :) They want to make it worse than it already is.12/24/2014 - 12:14pm
Papa MidnightDMCA has been broken since 1998. Good luck getitng Congress to do something about it.12/24/2014 - 11:39am
Craig R.At least they owned up to the mistake. But doesn't change the fact that DMCA is thoroughly broken.12/23/2014 - 5:23pm
MaskedPixelanteSpeaking of Dark Souls OMG I'M MAKING ACTUAL PROGRESS WTH IS THIS WHAAAAAAA12/23/2014 - 10:49am
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=144500932&postcount=740 Yup, DSFix was part of an unrelated take down, and is being resolved.12/23/2014 - 8:04am
prh99Of course had they not done such a rush on the port we wouldn't dsfix to make the game not look and play like ass. 720 internal renders aren't so hot scaled to 1080.12/23/2014 - 7:38am
Papa MidnightIt was most likely an automated tool. Happens all the time. Just another case of the broken DMCA Claim and Takedown process that puts the entirety of the burden of proof on the accused instead of the claimant.12/22/2014 - 10:09pm

MaskedPixelanteSounds like BN was going after an unrelated mod, and took out DSFix in the process. Probably once a counterclaim goes out, this'll all be sorted out.12/22/2014 - 7:04pm

Papa MidnightI kind of liked the movement to have Terry Crews play him instead, but this will do.12/22/2014 - 3:40pm

IanCBecause that isn't Max Payne 3. It might have the name, but it isn't an entry in the series.12/22/2014 - 12:48pm
IanCOh theres a Max Payne 3? A proper one, or are we referring to that abomination that Rockstar crapped out a few years ago12/22/2014 - 12:48pm
IanCUpgraded PS3 hard drive to 500gb. Restored 53GB back up. Done the maths, have somehow used up 106GB already?12/22/2014 - 12:44pm
