The prestigious Esports Awards, one of the most anticipated nights of the year in the esports world, has announced that Make-A-Wish will be its official charity partner for 2021.
Esports Awards and Make-A-Wish will now work closely together on a range of activities such as charity auctions and live streams, with an exciting programme of events to be announced in the coming months.
Now that in-person events are starting to make a come-back, this year’s Esports Awards will return to the Esports Stadium Arlington, Texas on 20th November.
The night will see all segments of the esports sector celebrated, while Esports Awards is expected to ramp up its charity campaign in the run-up to the big night, encouraging its community to raise funds for the foundation.
“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”, said Luciano Manzo, President and CEO of Make-A- Wish® International.
