Upcoming: 

The Games Done Quick Viewing Party at the Visulite Cinema in downtown Staunton. Join us on Saturday, January 13th from 9:30pm-12:30am as we watch two exciting speed-runs, live on the big screen!!

The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, and Super Mario World.

Games Done Quick is a series of charity video game marathons. These events feature high-level gameplay by speedrunners (people playing classic games like Mario Bros. and Legend of Zelda at a level you didn’t think was possible) raising money for charity. Games Done Quick has teamed up with several charities in its seven-year history, including Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. Games Done Quick are currently the largest fundraising event globally for both charities!! To date, Games Done Quick has raised over 12 million dollars for charity. We want to add to those totals with this Pay What You Will charity event. It costs nothing to attend, but 100% of any money collected will be donated to Games Done Quick.

Hope to see you all there!! If you have any questions please message us on facebook or email us at g34charity@gmail.com

Previous:

In 2016 we raised $3,000 for the UVA Children’s Hospital by hosting three gaming events in Staunton, VA.

In April, Shenandoah Pizza let us host our first event, where we invited people to come show off their skills in some classic games. We had participants who could blaze through the original Mario Brothers Nintendo game, solve a Rubic’s Cube in 30 seconds, and earn impressively high scores in popular mobile games like Tiles and Flappy Bird.

For our second event, we invited people to join us in Staunton’s beautiful Gypsy Hill Park to play the widely popular mobile game: Pokemon Go. We put together a Pokemon Scavenger Hunt where participants ran around the park, taking selfies at various landmarks and catching cute little virtual critters!

At our third event, we went with a construction theme. We used everyone’s favorite, timeless toy: LEGOs, and the popular virtual world of Minecraft. Participants competed to show off their engineering and creativity, as well as building speed!

In April 2017, we partnered with our local CASA non-profit to help them raise money at their annual 5k Fun Run and Family Day at Gypsy Hill Park. Our team put together a “Superhero Training Facility” where participants used our games to strengthen their minds and bodies — preparing them for all of their future heroics!

In October 2017,  we partnered with the Out of the Darkness Greater Augusta Walk to raise money for the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention.

we had awesome team-building games, Overcooked and G3 Minecraft game, including a Virtual Reality experience with our state-of-the-art HTC Vive!
