This year Team Green Ronin is happy to be participating in The Gauntlet 2015, a friendly gaming-for-charity event that will pit us against other Seattle-area teams such as reigning champs Paizo Publishing, Bungie Studios, the Lady Planeswalker Society, GeekGirlCon, Valve, and many others in a tabletop game tournament on May 16th. Here’s a little more information from the organizers’ page:
The Gauntlet: Moxtropolis is a fundraising tournament for the benefit of Hopelink, a charity whose mission is to support homeless and low-income families on their way to self-sufficiency. On May 16th, 2015, teams will gather to compete in a contest of skill and chance at Mox Boarding House in Bellevue, WA.
Teams of four, from local community groups and businesses, will raise donations for Hopelink. These donations will unlock power-ups to aid them as they compete in a series of table top games to win glory, and victoriously hoist the Gauntlet! This event is sponsored by ENGAGE – Card Kingdom and Mox Boarding House’s charitable giving program.
Bungie has raised an incredible $23,546 as of this writing. Green Ronin’s goal is a little more modest. Team members Chris Pramas, Donna Prior, Nicole Lindroos and honorary-Ronin Ray Winninger all have individual fundraising pages and goals that tie back to the team’s page. Nicole set her personal goal at $3000 only to learn that last year many teams didn’t even raise that amount. However, Nicole responded with, “I do not [fool] around when I raise money for charity.”
Just $3.00 provides a meal for a family of four through Hopelink’s program. Consider a small donation if you can, and please help Team Green Ronin spread the word. Thanks!
