WHO WE ARE
Here at Dungeons of Hope, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2017 as a 501.c3 charity fundraising organization, we are proud to say we have raised thousands donated directly to the South Park Inn Homeless Shelter in Hartford, CT. Dungeons of Hope was created and is now dedicated to continue raising money for deserving organizations through the fun of adventure games.
Bringing Change, One Game at a Time
The Start To Change
This year marked the very first DOH event that ended with lots of smiles and an incredible outcome for the organization's kick-off. Hosted at Jay Timothy's in CT, we were able to team up with various sponsors and found 16 awesome participants. With their help, we raised $3,200 and had a great time while doing so.
A special thank you to all that made this become a reality.
Continuing To Grow
2018 showed the promising future of this organization with the growing amount of both participants and sponsors. We had 20 amazing heroes, many returning from the previous year, showing a true passion for the game as well as helping our community. As a team, we raised $5,130. The South Park Inn was overwhelmed and we could not wait for the following year to grow even further.
Establishing Our Organization
At our most recent event, it was incredible to see the amount of returning players. Some are making this an annual tradition! We were also lucky to have a generous amount of sponsors that donated directly towards our cause and provided incredible prizes for all our players. Not only that, we were also joined by the game maker himself, Stephen Baker who's shown holding the prize, hand-crafted sword above. It was an honor to have been joined by the man who created the game Hero Quest that allowed us to start such a powerful cause.
We were able to raise a record-breaking $6,800 with all the support and could not be more thankful for those who were involved- sponsors, players, and volunteers.
RETRO WORLD EXPO
Dungeons of Hope was at Retro World Expo to promote our yearly gaming event. We had a lot of fun and met a lot of great people. Shout outs to Rhythm & Pixels for playing a game with us, Connecticut Ghost Busters, Nick Caito for being a Zargon for two games on Saturday, and Joe Murphy for hooking Adam up with a sweet X-Men Tattoo.

SOUTH PARK INN
The charity is South Park Inn. South Park Inn provides a continuum of services from street outreach and emergency shelter to transitional and permanent housing. While staying at South Park Inn residents’ basic needs are met and they work to overcome the problems that led to their homelessness.
The work that is done by the South Park Inn team is truly outstanding. Not only do they help individuals, families, and veterans get off the streets, but their focus has always been to help these folks get back on their feet. Their impact in the Hartford region over the years is truly immeasurable. This is why Dungeons of Hope has decided to help this deserving charity organization.
