This Is All For Children’s Hospitals?!
That’s right! This amazing event isn’t just about gaming. Well ok, it IS about gaming… but gaming for a cause!
At the core of Hoop & Stick Con is a fundraising event dedicated to raising money for children’s hospitals. For the first few years, our primary charity was Child’s Play, which raises money to provide toys and games to children in hospitals around the world. In 2016 we were excited to begin supporting Extra Life, a Children’s Miracle Network fundraising program.
In addition to the $50 donation included in the price of each ticket, Ravenwood Castle will also be donating 50% of all room rentals for the weekend. Of course 100% of the proceeds from the silent auction also go to Children’s Miracle Network.
We set ourselves an aggressive fund raising goal each year. As you can see from the series of giant checks below, we’re currently four for four. With your help, we plan to continue raising money for children’s hospitals well into the future!
A Series of Successful Events!
Our fourth annual Hoop & Stick Con was a rousing success! With the assistance of Plaid Hat Games, Ohio Pathfinder Society, The Malted Meeple, a ton of amazing sponsors and donors, and of course our great guests, we once again exceeded both our goal and our previous year’s results, and raised $8,230 for Extra Life and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!
In our third year, Hoop & Stick Con 2015 was again a successful event. We managed to exceed our aggressive fundraising goal of $7,500! With the assistance of Plaid Hat Games, Ohio Pathfinder Society, The Malted Meeple, and you our great guests, we raised $7,715.50 for Child’s Play! That’s a lot of toys and games for children’s hospitals around the country!
The second year of this event was Hoop & Stick 2014, and we were thrilled that nearly 75% of our guests were repeat guests from the original RavenCon. Between them, our new guests, and all of our great supporters, we managed to raise even more money for Child’s Play this year! Over $5,800 for children’s hospitals around the country, now that’s a successful weekend!
