CHARITY

Over the past 10 years, the amazing gamers who attend CroomsCon and LANfest have donated over $72,000 to charity!

All of the profit that we generate through CroomsCon goes to charity. Each year we donate a lump sum to a deserving charity while leaving some cash in the account to begin working on the next year’s CroomsCon. Below you'll find our donation history along with some images from the events!

Crooms Lanfest 2014 - $2,000

LANfest 2014 was the first time LANfest donations went to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals! Part of the reason we chose that charity is because of their high program expenses percentage and their overall transparency and accountability according to CharityNavigator.org. You can find our account expense report of the donation below.

Crooms Lanfest 2013 - $1500

LANfest 2013 continued our donations to Child’s Play.  2013 was the first time we incorporated the Microsoft Kinect for an awesome dance off! It was also the first time we held LANfest on the first day of the holiday break in December. Unfortunately, the timing didn’t work out well for many people who wanted to attend and resulted in one of the smaller events we’ve held.

Crooms Lanfest 2012 - $1600

Crooms LANfest 2012 continued our donations to Child’s Play.  You’ll notice that all of the Child’s Play donation confirmation letters have earlier dates on them due to the fact that we used to pre-donate before the event started.

Crooms Lanfest 2011

LANfest 2011 (Internally called LANfest3) was the first year that Mr. Donnan took over LANfest from Mr. Hopkinson and converted it into a charity event that supported the Child’s Play charity.
