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.

2018

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.

HeroQuest Creator joins our event!

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.

8 Teams-40 Heroes- Double the participants from 2018- SOLD OUT!

The Hartford Club was the location of this year’s SOLD OUT event. We had 8 teams of 5 heroes each, and raised a total for $5,276 bringing the total raised to date to over $24,000. 


Playing quests written by our members and playing on retro and new HeroQuest game boards made the game much more fun and challenging. 

Thank you to Brian Nicks Productions for creating the perfect atmosphere with fog, lightening, background music and lighting. Live guitar was also provided by Jay Wawrzyniak. The Hartford Club outdid themselves with a fantastic buffet dinner. Our exceptional bar tender Lee ‘the Barbarian” was there to keep our cups full. 


Thank you to all the great sponsors and businesses that provided prizes for our event. Without your help our event could not have happened.


Our 5th event will be held at City Steam in Hartford on November 11, 2023. There will be space for 12 teams-60 Heroes. Sign up now to secure your space!

RETRO WORLD EXPO

2018-2022

Dungeons of Hope attends the Retro World Expo each year to promote our annual gaming event. Every year we see old friends, meet lots of new people, have fun playing HeroQuest and introducing it to new players. A charity auction was held in 2022 and Dungeons Of Hope received a check for over $800 to help fight homelessness! Find us in 2023 August 26-27 at the Hartford Convention Center for Retro World Expo 2023!

GAME NIGHTS

Several times a year Dungeons of Hope holds Game Nights at the South Park Inn. On these nights we play games of all types with the residents of The South Park Inn.  In 2022, around Christmas time, we had a Christmas Arts and Crafts night where residents decorated stockings and ornaments to go on the Christmas trees at the shelter.
