Foodhammer: Gaming for a Noble Cause! Get Involved

Old School here to talk about an event that has a really great cause: Foodhammer, a great annual Charity event that helps raise food for families that may struggle through the holiday season! Here are more details from the folks at Fresh Coast 40k:

What is Foodhammer 2012?
                Foodhammer is an annual Warhammer charity event benefiting the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. 100% of the proceeds from the event are donated. Last year, Fresh Coast 40k raised $1,070 dollars in cash and $1,500 worth of non-perishable food items for the less fortunate in the Mid-Michigan area, which provided hundreds of meals to local families.
                Date: November 3rd Time: 11am - 8pm Doors @ 10am Location: Flint
                On November 3rd, gamers from around the region will gather in Flint to battle one another for prizes and bragging rights, but also to support an important local charity by donating to the cause.
                Foodhammer 2012 will be hosted by Fresh Coast 40k at Flint’s very own Gamers Sanctuary, the place to play in mid-Michigan.
                EVENT LOCATION - Gamers Sanctuary: G4290 Miller Rd. Flint MI 48507 p: 810.720.8280
