The GIGABYTE Charity Raffle at I55 Raised £2417 for Zoё’s Place

Gigabyte’s charity raffle for Zoë’s Place, held during Insomnia 55, was a big success and made it possible to hand over a check worth £2417. This isn’t the first time Gigabyte is holding a raffle at the Insomnia event and last time they made £1700, so €2417 is a good step up and a great sign that gamers want to give something back. All the proceeds of the raffle go to Zoë’s Place, a baby hospice providing palliative, respite and end of life care for babies and infants aged from birth to five years and suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.

That is all great news and there were also some great prizes up for grab as part of the raffle. The ones entering the raffle had the chance to win AMD processors, AOC monitors, Coolermaster power supplies and cases, Crucial memory, Fractal Design power supplies and cases, Kingston memory and HyperX SSDs, Tesoro gaming keyboards, mice, headsets and mousepads, as well as Netgear NAS and cameras. GIGABYTE themselves sponsored a gaming laptop, motherboards, a graphics card, keyboards, and headsets for the raffle. All in all, prizes worth over £5000.

Gigabyte will be back with another Raffle in the future and I hope that even more people will support the cause then. We can do better, we can do more.

GIGABYTE and Partners Hold Biggest Ever Charity Raffle at I55

UK’s biggest gaming festival, Insomnia, is just around the corner and it will open its doors tomorrow for Multiplay Insomnia 55, UK’s biggest gaming festival at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Following up on the last successful charity raffle, GIGABYTE again partnered with others to create the biggest ever charity raffle at Insomnia. There will be around £5000 worth of hardware prizes to win spread out over the two days.

The prizes that you can win include AMD processors, AOC monitors, Coolermaster power supplies and cases, Crucial memory, Fractal Design power supplies and cases, Kingston memory and HyperX SSDs, Tesoro gaming keyboards, mice, headsets and mousepads, as well as Netgear NAS and cameras. GIGABYTE is sponsoring a gaming laptop, motherboards, a graphics card, keyboards, and headsets themselves. All this can be won and best of all, everything goes to charity.

There will be two raffles, one held on Friday, the 28th of August and the second the day after, on Saturday, the 29th of August.

Like last time, all the proceeds will be donated to the local charity Zoë’s place, a baby hospice providing palliative, respite and end of life care for babies and infants aged from birth to five years and suffering from life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. This is truly a worthy cause and I hope a lot of the gamers attending the Insomnia event will be very generous. The added bonus of  having a chance to win amazing hardware and this really is a no-brainer. Participate!

Enermax Celebrates 25th Birthday and Gives Away 100 Gifts to Customers

ENERMAX is celebrating their 25th birthday, but instead of getting presents they are handing them out themselves in order to give something back to their customers. The anniversary celebration is a Europe-wide event for end users where everybody who buys an ENERMAX power supply between the 1st and 31st of May 2015 has the chance to win 1 of 100 prizes. End users from all of Europe can participate in the big Born 4 Power contest.

Enermax has just recently released their MAXPRO power supply series, so this could indeed be a good time to invest in one of them and get a shot at the 100 prizes with a total value of €4,000. Prizes don’t come just from ENERMAX themselves, you can win MSI graphics cards, AMD APUs, and ASROCK motherboards next to a some of ENERMAX’s own cooling and chassis products.

To enter the contest, customers have to register their purchase via an online form and provide a copy of the invoice as proof. You can only enter the raffle once per PSU bought, but can enter with up to five products to get five tickets in the raffle.

While this isn’t for everyone as it requires a purchase, it is a really nice bonus for ENERMAX customers and a way for a company to say thanks for the support over the last 25 years. And congratulations Enermax on the first quarter of a century in the business.
