Benefit for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

Events | August 2, 2017


Are you a Gamers Outreach supporter residing in SoCal, or someone making a trip out to the west coast in the next couple weeks? If either of those is a yes – we’ve got an event for you!

On August 17th, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is hosting a soiree to raise funds in support of the Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases (CCCBD), and Gamers Outreach is sponsoring the event! The CCCBD was ranked the #1 pediatric hematology-oncology program in California and #7 in the nation in 2016. Their work and dedication helps thousands of children both at CHLA and around the world.

This fundraiser is a part of CHLA’s “emerging leaders” program, which brings together business leaders and entrepreneurs from Los Angeles in support of patient treatment.

As friends of the cause, you’re invited to attend! This event is a great opportunity to learn about Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and the role Gamers Outreach programs have at the hospital.

During the evening, you’ll have the chance to interact with some of our crew members, hospital staff, young professionals, and a number of game industry friends from around Los Angeles, all in support of fighting cancer! We’ll also be hearing from a young man named Yssa, known to his family and friends as “Ironman Yssa”. He’s 12 years old and was recently diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. Over the past several months, he’s gone through a couple rounds of chemo and a partial leg amputation. Through it all, he never loses his smile.
