My name is James Alderson, a tournament organizer in San Francisco for the King of Fighters series. I'm reaching out for support for two pillars of the King of Fighters community, Lacid & MadKOF, so they can manage through a tragic incident.
On August 2nd 2023 in Las Vegas, someone stole from them in their hotel during their stay. They do not know when they were robbed or by who. A police report has been filed. Their credit cards and personal cash ($1,000) were taken, leaving them with no access to funds at all.
Lacid and MadKOF are traveling from South Korea for Evolution 2023. Traveling away from home, especially internationally and now without cash, puts them both in a vulnerable and frightening situation. Thankfully, with the help of Ramon "Romance" Navarrete Valencia and many other KOF community members, they are safe and stable.
My ask is to lift these two up and make sure they can recover what they lost and be at ease throughout their trip. Spare what you can and support these good-natured people with a bit of North American FGC hospitality!
