Charity Partners Reviews:
Allie Acker, Community Relations Coordinator, Ronald McDonald House Charities:
"Working with the Game to Give Team has been an absolute Joy. Not only are they organized and fun, the passion they have to help others is inspiring. They have continued to strive to find ways to support the many families who come through the doors of Ronald McDonald House Charities ® Southern Alberta and we couldn’t be more grateful. There is no better way in our minds to give back to community then doing it with some healthy competition, good times and laughter. We are looking forward to more “ultimate game nights” in the future, and can’t wait to see what the Game to Give team will do next. Thank you Adam, John, Hanna, Matt and Wade for putting our families first and supporting Ronald McDonald House. We couldn’t continue to create a home for our out of town families without your support."
Game to Give Attendee Reviews:
"I personally had a lot of fun, at one point I was laughing so hard I actually had to ask for a bathroom break because I was going to pee my pants"
"I thought it was a good mix of games and downtime to chat with people and the games were quite fun! Truly enjoyed myself"
"I'm so glad I went! Thanks for hosting it - it's such a great idea. Bringing awareness to people in a casual way instead of super expensive galas - it's awesome because it reinforces that it doesn't matter how much you give, every bit makes a difference!"
"Honestly, I thought it was a blast. I loved the games you do - every game had me laughing"
