Pokethon Revive – 7/23/2017

Pokethon Revive marked a lot of firsts for the Pokethon team. For starters, it was the first marathon to be held in a hotel space, which made for accommodating more attendees a much simpler task. We also featured the Telefang games for the first time, a bootleg series under the Pokemon title run by our local expert, RacieB. This was the first marathon that we fundraised for Help Hope Live, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit, whose mission is to support community-based fundraising for people with unmet medical and related expenses due to cell and organ transplants or catastrophic injuries and illnesses. This marathon also brought back many of the Pokethon classics, including the third edition of Mr. Smith’s Soda Machine Suicide, and the PPP (Pokethon Pizza Party), where MC and Kampy order a pizza and conduct a very serious review of it in several categories. In the end, this one raised just over $15,000 for Help Hope Live, bringing our total amount raised past $50,000.
