NextGen Player | Gaming for Charity

2008-07-03 Amp Your Game - TorontoLast week I had the pleasure of attending the "Amp Your Game" Tour, a Cross Canada event that is looking to fill in the last spot on the Amp Energy Pro Team, North of 49, to compete with existing team members; Nelson Triana (gamer tag: G-SpOt), Leo Vitelli (gamer tag: Alpha XFactor) and Bo Kovacevic (gamer tag: The Bo).

A special media event, for Video Game media personalities in the Toronto area, was held on Wednesday July 2, 2008. As the night progressed the "Amp Your Game Media Charity Challenge" was held by the tours key, sponsor Amp Energy Drink. As it happens I was able to drive my way to victory (see picture of me playing MotorStorm on the PS3).

As the winner I received a very cool prize pack and I got to pick the recipient of a charitable donation from Amp Energy for the sum of $500. As it happens I work with a Local Canadian Charity, as their Marketing Director, named COTERC (Canadian Organization for Tropical Education and Rainforest Conservation) so my charity of choice, was an easy one to make.

On Behalf of NextGen Player and COTERC I'd like to say - Thank you AMP Energy for your generous contribution.
