Thoughts On This Year’s Jingle Brawl

I was going to write this on Monday but it slipped to Tuesday because I was still trying to catch up after this weekend. Jingle Brawl: it’ll do that to you. I’d like to start off by first thanking all our students who made this year’s event a success. They took time out of their weekends and their schedules to develop the tournaments and activities that so many enjoyed on Saturday. While we had a few hitches here and there, the event ran exceptionally well in general and it’s because of their efforts. I’d also like to thank our sponsors, particularly Pat Fuge from Gnome Games, who stayed with us most of the day and even helped us raise $240 in about ten minutes with his generous matching. Of course, as a result I had to dance to the 1992 Read More

2 Days!

It’s only 2 days until Jingle Brawl 2016 and we are so excited to be putting this on for the kids at HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital. Please come out and support kids in Green Bay who cannot be home for the holiday season. HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital will be joining us at Jingle Brawl so you can see exactly what types of kids you are helping and where your money is going! Don’t forget about our awesome prizes and community businesses that make Jingle Brawl a success. We hope to have your support in helping out local kids. Dress up, play games, win cool prizes, and most importantly, have fun with your family and friends.

A Friendly Reminder…

There’s a lot going on in the world right now. Like, a LOT. The UWGB Game Studies program would like to remind everyone that Jingle Brawl should be a place where we can escape our worries and everyday lives. This is a community event meant to bring families, the community and college students together with video games! We want to invite everyone to come and enjoy the day with us. Please show respect to your fellow gamers, and help the kids at HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital while you’re here! We want to share the joy of playing video games with everyone. Bring your friends and family and have fun playing games. Let it be known that this is a judgment-free zone (unless you enter the costume contest) where it doesn’t matter how good you are at games or who Read More

HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital

Hello everyone! This year, we are excited to announce that all of our proceeds will be going to HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital in Green Bay, WI! Your donations will be helping kids like Hailee, Marian, Nolan, Norah, and many more, so they can get the treatments they need. Because some kids will be spending their holiday season in the hospital, they cannot be there to do things they would love to do! Like play video games with a bunch of cool people, or being at the dinner table, or celebrating New Years with friends and family. Jingle Brawl is proud to give to HSHS St. Vincent Children’s Hospital. Check out these kids, they’ve been through so much, and with your help, they don’t have to travel thousands of miles to get the treatment they need. We hope you will Read More
