CSULB eSports Association: Fight For A Cause Event


This past weekend on October 24th, 2015, EVGA and EVGAGaming had a chance to sponsor and attend a local event.  Fight for a Cause @ Cal State University, Long Beach is a charity event put on by the university's eSports Association and BeachCon coordinators to raise money and awareness for the Children's Hospital in Orange County (CHOC).

Attendee's had a chance to sign up for the different console and PC tournaments for a chance to win some awesome prizes.  EVGA/EVGAGaming was proud help out and sponsor the CS:GO tournament, where the top 3 teams of 5 players, would take home an EVGA Z97 Classified motherboard for 1st place team,  an EVGA SuperNova 650 P2 power supply for 2nd place team, and EVGA Torq Gaming Mice for the 3rd place team.

We had an awesome time at the event.  We gave out some EVGA Swag, raffled of an EVGA GTX 950 graphics card, and got to see some awesome tournament matches.  All for a great cause and to give back to the community.  We want to thank the CSULB eSports Association and BeachCon crew for having us, and we look forward to the next one!  Check out a few of the images we took during the event below!
