I am Paul, the event coordinator for the Midwest Keyforge Charity Open. This year the Open is being held in partnership with Meeple-a-Thon KC. It is on October 22-23, 2021 from 6 PM on Friday - 6 PM on Saturday. It is a charity gaming event that helps support homeless youth and young adults in the Kansas City area.
We will be having two larger tournaments over the two days. Friday night will be an Archon (swiss) tournament starting between 7-8 PM. On Saturday a 2 Deck Sealed Survival event starting between 8-9 AM. There will be learn to play Keyforge tables and 4-8 player tournament pods throughout the event (as needed).
I am hoping to raise funds to help cover event expenses, prize support and add additional support to the charity. 10 dollars of every ticket sold to the main event and 5 dollars of every ticket to the Friday event will be going to their charity. We could use some funds to help cover some of the necessary expenses of running a large Keyforge event. Please understand. No dollars from this or any of the event sales will be for profit. It will either be to cover expenditures made for the event, the charity or prize support during the event.
Why choose a GoFundMe, you ask?
I just felt it would be the best way to share this opportunity with the Keyforge Community. I am sure there are plenty of you out there that would love to become part of this event in a special way (whether you are attending or not). We are not only going to have a great time playing Keyforge, we are also helping a great cause! This is essentially a crowd funded event. This is not an FFG official event, so all prizes and support are being funded by all of us. It is your chance to help me turn a great event into an EXTRAORDINARY event for everyone that attends! Lets show FFG how much passion we have for this great game! Donate, so we can forge some Keys, to help unlock doors for struggling youth and young adults!
Thank you for your time and I hope to see you on October 22nd!
