The Esports Awards, the most prestigious night in the esports calendar, is excited to reveal Make-A-Wish as its Official Charity Partner for 2021. The partnership will see the Esports Awards and Make-A-Wish work closely together on a whole host of activities including charity auctions, live streams, with lots more to be announced in the coming months.
This year the Esports Awards will return to the Esports Stadium Arlington, Texas on November 20th where it will celebrate and honour every corner of the industry on the biggest night in the esports calendar. The Esports Awards will work on a charity campaign in the run up to the awards to encourage its community to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish.
“When Make-A-Wish explained that gaming-related wishes had seen an increase we knew that we wanted to help facilitate as many wishes as possible. The Esports Awards aims to bring the esports and gaming industry community together under one roof and we are hoping to provide these incredibly brave young people with a fantastic experience and the opportunity to meet their heroes. We have lots planned in the coming months and we look forward to helping raise as much funding as we can,” said Michael Ashford, CEO, Esports Awards.
“This collaboration with Esports Awards came at an opportune time as we have seen an exponential increase of gaming-related wishes during the pandemic. We are delighted to be working with Esports Awards to bring hope, strength and joy to our wish children worldwide. Together, we are one step closer to being able to grant the wish of every eligible child”, says Luciano Manzo, President and CEO of Make-A- Wish® International.
