Many of us here at Gateway Games experienced an immeasurable loss when we lost our good friend Ryan Walsh to neuroendocrine cancer back in October of 2015. We immediately knew we wanted to host an event in his memory and raise funds to help others battling the disease. So we made a humble request of the St. Louis board game community: come play some board games with us on International Table Top Day and, if you can, buy a raffle ticket or make a donation to the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation.
And boy, the St. Louis board gaming community delivered.
Ten hours and nearly one hundred attendees later, we raised $1626 for the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Center, much more than we ever expected. The event was so successful, in fact, we’re already making plans to do it again next year!
Thank you so much to everyone who came out and enjoyed International Table Top Day with us. Special thanks to Arch Reactor, Stonemeier Games, The Geek Nest, Miniature Market, Eric Heibbler, TRX Tattoos, VIVIsect Studios, Jeffrey Bain, SUBCULTURE Comics, Matt Reedy, Jezzy, Geekway to the West, DieCon, Piaza Productions, STL PRO Inc., Little Fox Tarot, Doll Teeth, Amanda Pepper, Joe Ploch, and Jamie Toon for generously donating their time and prizes for our raffles and play-and-pay. You all made this event more successful than we could have imagined.
