We were thrilled to hear that Help Hope Live would once again be one of three charity beneficiaries in the Greater Philadelphia area for the annual in-person bring-your-own-computer gaming event RGB LAN.

The event raised over $11,000 for charity!

For three days, gamers came together to compete and play for a cause. Each attendee got to choose a color team that matched their charity of choice and earn points towards that charity’s final total from RGB LAN. Green Team pride!!

The RGB LAN team invited us to visit the LAN party event in-person to meet attendees and share how Help Hope Live’s mission impacts lives.

The matching donor for Green Team pledged $1,000 and challenged RGB LAN gamers to match it during the event. They reached and exceeded that goal!

We are so grateful to the Help Hope Live donor who made this extra incentive possible!

Thank you to the RGB LAN community for raising funds and hope!
