Hoop & Stick Con!

What is Hoop & Stick Con? We’re glad you asked!  Hoop & Stick Con is a weekend of board games, role playing games and general gaming goodness! In a castle!!

The ninth annual Hoop & Stick Con was originally scheduled to be held February 25th through February 28th, 2021. Unfortunately, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the event itself has been cancelled.

But that doesn’t mean we aren’t still raising funds for Extra Life and Children’s Miracle Network hospitals! As is traditional for Hoop & Stick Con, Ravenwood Castle will be donating 50% of all room rentals during the originally scheduled convention period.

Unfortunately, we won’t have sponsors or a silent auction this year. So instead, we have decided to turbo-charge our online donation drive. If you would like to help us raise money for sick children, click on the Make a Donation button on the right of this page. Ravenwood Castle will match your contribution, up to $250 per donor and up to $5,000 total!

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 eight for eight.  With your help, we plan to continue raising money for children’s hospitals well into the future!

Our eighth annual Hoop & Stick Con was another wonderful event! With your help we managed to once again exceed our previous year’s fundraising, putting us at eight for eight! With the support of Ohio Pathfinder Society, The Malted Meeple, amazing sponsors such as Lake Hope Lodge, Jackie O’s Brewery, Alltech Lexington Brewing, Misty Mountain Gaming, our new sponsor Victory Brewing and Southern Tier Brewing, not to mention our silent auction donors, and of course our guests, we raised a whopping $14,044 for Extra Life and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!
