Gamers Outreach passed along word to us this morning that it will be hosting its Gamers for Giving 2014 LAN gaming event for charity February 8th and 9th at the Eastern Michigan University Student Center. The group says that its full schedule of activities is currently in the works, but the tentative schedule of activities will include:
– BYOC LAN party for PC and console gamers (size of the LAN, tournaments, & activities TBA).
– Console gaming tournaments hosted by Gamers Outreach Foundation (titles TBA).
– A live streamathon hosted by industry production company Kona's Korner Productions.
– An entire weekend of gaming for charity: the event will begin in the morning hours of February 8th and run non-stop until the evening of February 9th!
Proceeds from Gamers for Giving activities are used to fund charity initiatives managed by Gamers Outreach Foundation, such as building portable gaming carts for children's hospitals, and sending video game care packages to U.S. troops overseas. You can learn more by visiting gamersforgiving.org.
