This Is All For Child’s Play?!
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 Child’s Play. That money is used to provide toys and games to children in hospitals around the world.
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 Child’s Play.
We set ourselves an aggressive fund raising goal each year, starting at $5,000 in our first year and going all the way up to $7,500 last year. As you can see from the big checks below, we’re currently three for three. With your help, we can raise even more this year!

A Series of Successful Events!
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!
