Next month, OutBreak Youth Ministries and DualShockers will be coming together to bring a videogame fundraising event on February 19th. Doors will open at 10am EST, and it will be located on 87-47 111th Street, Richmond Hill, New York. Video Game Day 2011 will be hosted in Elohim Christian Church, and the money raised that day will be put completely toward bringing a positive influence to the urban youth in the community.
As a person who is passionate about my community and as an avid gamer, this day means a whole lot. What started as a handful of people in 2009 coming together in a conference room to determine who was the best gamer, Video Game Day has become something truly special. I hope to see lots of people come and do what they love; game.
Video Game Day 2011 will include videogame tournaments (Call of Duty Black Ops, Halo: Reach, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, etc.), prizes, food and much more. More information will come soon. To stay plugged in, you can follow me on twitter @ninferno, or become a fan at OutBreak Youth Ministries on Facebook.
Stay tuned, folks.
