All the way back before LanOC V14 when I was tossing around ideas for our next event we tossed around the idea of putting together a PC to give away at V15. This quickly tuned into a discussion about how to give it away. I decided early on that I wanted make sure that everyone would have a chance to win it. Well today is the day, I can officially announce our PC giveaway for LanOC V15 and more importantly I would like to announce our collaboration with Child’s Play to raise money for Parkview Hospital in neighboring Fort Wayne, Indiana.
It should be no secret that we love building computers here at LanOC, nor that we work with some pretty awesome companies leading the tech industry. We wanted to do something to help give back to the local communites of, well, our online community and the first recepient is going to be Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Specifically we will be raising money to purchase items on their wishlist submitted to Child’s Play, including Wii U video game consoles, several titles such as The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Mario Kart 8, Nintendo 2DS gaming systems, LEGOs, children’s tablets, books, and more. At our upcoming LAN event, LanOC v15, we will be conducting a separate charity raffle for a custom built gaming PC (see below for the hardware list and the companies that contributed to it).
