Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley (RMHGHV) today announced it will be hosting their first ever GiveByGaming Video Game Tournament featuring Epic Games’ Fortnite, with prizing being provided by Turtle Beach Corporation. The two-round tournament will take place Saturday, December 18, 2021 and participation is completely free.
The House, located just steps away from the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Valhalla, provides a home away from home for families of sick children. GiveByGaming tournament participants are encouraged to share their custom fundraising pages with family and friends and to raise funds that help RMHGHV support families of sick children. Additionally, participants can also earn community service hours for their schools by raising funds through the tournament.
According to Christina Riley, Executive Director of RMHGHV, this initial GiveByGaming Tournament will be the first of many gaming tournaments for the organization.
“We are excited to bring this unique opportunity for fundraising and engagement with a whole new demographic of our community and plan to host several similar gaming tournaments throughout the new year,” said Riley. “Through the generosity of Turtle Beach we can offer our participants amazing prizes to build the excitement of the tournament while raising funds and awareness and help us support more families.”
Leading gaming accessory maker Turtle Beach Corporation will be donating $3,500 in prizing to be awarded to top scorers and fundraisers, including gaming gear from its best-selling and award-winning Turtle Beach and ROCCAT brands.
“Although we’re a global brand, we’re excited to get involved in our local community and forge a partnership with RMHGHV which is located just miles away from our White Plains headquarters,” said Andrew Lilien, VP of Marketing, Turtle Beach Corporation.
The prize pool, which will be awarded to the top 15 tournament players, will include a Grand Prize with $500 worth of gaming accessories including a Turtle Beach Elite Pro 2 headset, ROCCAT Kone Pro gaming mouse, and ROCCAT Vulcan TKL Pro mechanical gaming keyboard.
