It’s Child’s Play


The Looking for Gamers Club will be holding a campus-wide charity event in early April.

“We’ve requested the auditorium and rooms in J wing because it has the best facilities for our needs,” said club president Tyler Templeton. “We’re aiming for the first week of April.”

All clubs at Sheridan College must put on at least one campus-wide event each year. Events can range from fundraisers and charity donations, to movie nights and scavenger hunts.

“We want to make sure that clubs are one of the best ways to directly interact with students,” said Sheridan Student Union club co-ordinator Leslie Pulsifer.

The gamers club will be running two events simultaneously: A Super Smash Brothers Tournament featuring both friendly and competitive divisions, and a LAN party and board games event. A $5 entry fee will give participants access to both events. Refreshments will be available.

Money raised from the event will go toward supporting Child’s Play.

“We’re trying to raise as much as possible because these are kids that are stuck in hospitals and hospitals aren’t exactly fun because there’s nothing to do,” said Templeton.

According to its website, Child’s Play helps to provide children’s hospitals worldwide with toys and games, as well as setting up a wish list for each individual hospital that can be directly fulfilled by those wishing to donate.

The organization helps over 100 hospitals internationally and includes the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
