GR8bit Live! Charity Gaming Convention & Music Festival

        “GR8bit Live! started three years ago as an idea that came to me after a conversation with one of my 6th grade students, who at the time was battling the early stages of leukemia, (which is in now in remission!). He mentioned that the hospital had a number of video games, but there were times when they were all spoken for and thus, he couldn’t play. Since I play guitar in a video game cover band, I thought it would be a great idea to host a charity concert with all the proceeds going toward new gaming equipment for The Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.”
