While I’m sure Chachi is working on a thank you of his own after he catches up on some sleep following this year’s Chachi Plays, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone involved for another great event
First and foremost, thanks to everyone who donated – both via PayPal and in person during the event. Without you, we’d just be a bunch of folks playing video games in a public setting. Thanks to your donations we can help share the arts with Pittsburgh youth – and make a difference in kids’ lives.
Thanks to The Toonseum for again opening their doors and giving us a roof over our heads, some outlets to plug into, and a place to call “home” for 24 hours. Thanks also to the awesome Toonseum volunteers and family who always make us feel at home during the event.
And thanks to the team – Chachi for foregoing sleep to play 24 hours of video games to raise funds and awareness for local kids, Sorg for capturing each minute of those 24 hours through the live video stream and the post-editing to create the time lapse version (which will be uploaded in the coming weeks for those who are interested in viewing a sped up version of the video stream), Chris for being an awesome tournament master and for helping manage some of the behind-the-scenes moving parts throughout the event, and everyone who has blogged, tweeted, facebooked, stopped by and otherwise offered support in the weeks and days before the event, during the event, and following the event.
