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!

In January of 2018 we hosted The Games Done Quick Viewing Party at the Visulite Cinema in downtown Staunton. We showcased the best and worst moments from the GDQ’s week-long twitch stream while raising money to benefit the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

The Summer of 2018, we hosted our first ever Summer Camp which provided campers with life skills and allowed them to raise over $1500 for the Blueridge  Area CASA by hosting a Rockband Benefit Concert!

With an exercise bike as his controller, Tony Robertson will attempt to “run” a virtual marathon across the continent of Kalimdor in World of Warcraft. Tune in and donate to EXTRA LIFE which benefits the UVA Children’s Hospital. Your donation will affect his gameplay. Make him faster, slower or even sing songs from the little mermaid! Tony will be donating $1 for every mile that he bikes.

Remember Pac-Man but aren’t too sure about Fortnite? Tony Robertson of Greater Good Gaming presents his research for caregivers who are seeking a deeper understanding of video games, so you can make the best choices about why and when to play them.
