And so it is that the year 2014 is behind us. And what a year it was!
We had another installment of Press START To Drink with Scott Pilgrim VS. Wreck-It Ralph, followed up by our second annual Drawing Dreams at C2E2. In the summer, we were very fortunate to be the beneficiaries of many wonderful events, including a screening of We Are Batman at The Chicago School Of Professional Psychology, The Lord Of The Wrigley: Fellowship Of The Cubs by The Nerdologues, Dodgeball Dungeon: MEGADUNGEON, Geek Show by VSTheUniverse, Bit Bash, and the Midwest Game Developer’s Kickball Tournament. Amongst all that, we even had a team run in Traffick Free’s 4th Annual 5K before ending the year with our 5th annual holiday fundraiser, Shamblers’ Ball at The Public House Theatre.
We set out to raise $5000 for Comer Children’s Hospital and Child’s Play, which would have been the most we’d ever raised before. Thanks to you, not only did we reach that goal, but we came close to doubling it. All told, we raised $9107 in 2014. That’s more than we raised in our first 4 years combined! Suffice to say, we're pretty excited, and extremely grateful. Our donations made a massive difference in the lives of the kids of Comer Children's Hospital and their families.
We've already begun planning our 2015 events, and with the momentum we picked up in 2014, we have every intention of taking things to the next level. Expect an announcement soon about our first event of 2015.
We look forward to seeing you there!
