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!
