Participants will be asked to make a nominal donation to play and will compete for a variety of prizes that have been donated from corporate sponsors. Additionally players and non-players will have the option to make a direct donation to Atrium Health Foundation, as well as purchase raffle tickets for additional prizing opportunities.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Atrium Health Foundation to help support the work of Atrium Health physicians, nurses, research scientists and other talented healthcare providers who are dedicated to providing health, hope and healing for all.
"It’s generous support from community partners like 54 Sports, LLC that continues to enhance Atrium Health’s efforts to fulfill its mission of providing the best care to all," said Armando Chardiet, President of Atrium Health Foundation. "We are grateful to benefit from this gaming event, which provides a safe platform for people to support our caregivers."
“Earlier this year, 54 Sports LLC hosted the largest esports event in Charlotte, NC to date. Our goal was to host an additional three events this year, but like many businesses and organizations, we have had to postpone our original plans, says Mark Surles, founder and CEO of 54 Sports LLC. “In the meantime, our team is dedicating their resources towards creating online esports tournaments with the goal of raising funds and awareness for non-profit organizations. Atrium Health Foundation is critically important in supporting healthy communities throughout the Carolinas and Georgia, and we could not be more excited to harness the power of the gaming community in an effort to raise valuable funds for our local healthcare heroes.
"The Carolina Games Summit is excited to work with 54 Sports to produce an online Fortnite tournament that will advance health-related services in the Carolina’s through the Atrium Health Foundation," states Michael Everett, Creative Director of the Carolina Games Summit. “This is a great opportunity for gamers to give back while doing what they love in a safe environment."
