Hurricane Katrina Relief Charity LAN October 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 Technical College), 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.
