NVGO, (Northview Video Game Olympics), is a fundraiser for the Northview Band Boosters. The event will consist of a variety of tournaments for different video games. Participants are allowed to enter up to two different tournaments. Each participant is a cost of $10, meaning Rocket League 2v2 is $20 per team, Overwatch 3v3 is $30 per team, and Fortnite 2v2 is $20 per team.

The event will take place over two days during the evening hours of Thursday April 21 and Friday April 22. Preliminary rounds will take place in the Northview High School Cafeteria on Thursday, and the quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals will take place on Friday in the auditorium, projected on the big screen for the audience to see, (due to technical issues, the 2v2 and 3v3 tournaments may or may not be projected on the big screen).

Gamers for Giving Virtual 2022

Gamers for Giving is a competitive gaming tournament and LAN party that helps generate resources for the initiatives of Gamers Outreach. Funds raised from the event help support Gamers Outreach charity initiatives, such as building portable gaming carts for children in hospitals.

Greetings, gamers. Welcome to the year 2022.

We’re thrilled to share our next annual Gamers for Giving fundraiser is scheduled to take place during the weekend of March 26th & 27th, 2022.

This year’s event will once again be a virtual marathon in support of Gamers Outreach programs.

Our team is eager to bring back the LAN party, but conditions are still not quite right for us to provide a comfortable attendee experience.

That said, we’ve been as active as ever providing gaming experiences to hospitalized families.
