Welcome! We are the Golden Gamers Alumni!
In 2016, a group of friends decided to make an Extra Life team at their alma mater, West Chester University. Over the years, more and more students wanted to join in with the Golden Gamers, turning our small team into a campus organization. Now, our alumni network spans over 40 dedicated players, all with a shared mission: gaming for good.
Our gAME DAY: JUNE 25-26, 2022
Our first Game Day on April 23 went so well, more players want to participate! After raising $13.5k on Game Day 1, twelve players will be hopping in for Game Day 2, hosted at Uplink Studios.
All donations go 100% towards helping the amazing kids at our local Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CHOP and Penn State Health Children's Hospital), both in care and research. Each location treats thousands of kids annually, regardless of their illness, injury, or family's ability to pay.
Last year, with our expanded digital approach and an amazing support network of donors, we raised just shy of $15,000. Our model also allowed greater accessibility to our team than ever, and we had teammates in Florida, Virginia, Illinois and California, as well as our home base in Pennsylvania.
This year, we're taking a hybrid approach, and our goal is to break the $15,000 barrier!
We'll share more info on the event as we get closer to the date, but expect all sorts of streams, challenges, and incentives from our entire team network. Tune in on this page or our linked social media!
