Hurricane Katrina Relief LAN - 10.29.2005
When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, we wanted to show support by mobilizing the community we had helped to build. We did what we do best – play games! In doing so, we were able to raise $2,180 with the help of Ranken Technical College and Best Buy. Since this was a side project of sorts, we experimented with other attractions, like Domino’s pizza (courtesy of Ranken), Halloween costumes and game-themed jack o’ lanterns, and an Airsoft shooting gallery in a separate room. This was also the first event to feature PurpleMint and -mogwai as new staff members, part of our sponsorship and pumpkin-carving team.
Attendees: 65 + 9 staff
