International Game Developers Association hosts charity events

 The International Game Developers Association has started “Gaming for Good,” which is an event used to raise money and other items for people in need. The club hosted its first event on Sept. 6 where it raised around $50 and a few food items and school supplies to help students in need. At the second event, club members raised almost triple that amount. 

“The main focus for the charity is to not just raise the money to help the charities that we’ve picked but to raise awareness of them, too,” said Kaitlyn Vest, vice president of IGDA. 

Cody Logan, president of IGDA, has created these events in hopes to raise money for the East Texas Crisis Center. IGDA hosts two charity events a month. Upon arrival, attendees pay a minimum of $5 and/or bring nonperishable food items, school supplies and health care products. IGDA wants to show people that “charities aren’t always just about ‘We need money,’” Vest said.

The next “Gaming for Good” event will be from noon to 3 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Vaughn Conservatory Building.
