Gamers United 2009 Holiday Social
Wednesday, December 9, 2009; ends at 7:00 PM (PST)
Los Angeles, CA
This December, the Gamers United organization is reaching out to the Mattel Children’s Hospital of UCLA.
The mission of Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA, an essential component of UCLA Health System, is to provide treatment for children in a compassionate atmosphere, and, as a teaching hospital, to conduct research that improves the understanding and treatment of pediatric diseases. In addition to providing medical services, Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA is involved in grassroots legislation for children's issues. Our goal is to raise donations for the Mattel Children’s Hospital.
We will be hosting the event and inviting celebrity gamers, industry executives, members of the press and more to enjoy a night of socializing and philanthropy. The event will have all the things gamers love, contests, tournaments, video games and of course, other gamers. The high-end social will go to further garner the positive reputation we are helping to build for gamers to the rest of the world.

When & Where
Originally conceptualized in 2008, Gamers United is an organization bringing the video gaming community and industry together, showcasing the positive aspects of video gaming to the world. Each year we help organizations, such as children's hospitals, in need of support. Many hospitals now use video gaming as a rehabilitative tool. Other organizations use it as a method of entertainment for those who are unable to leave the confines of their home or hospital bed. Gamers United is dedicated to giving back and highlighting the video gamer's youthful and giving spirit.
