San Francisco-based Golden Guardians, an affiliate team of the Golden State Warriors, has announced its partnership with Softgiving.
To celebrate the launch of the partnership, Golden Guardians will host a charity stream on September 12th for Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles.
Throughout the course of the partnership, Golden Guardians and Softgiving will host several charity stream events and raise money for a variety of charities during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and National Video Games Week.
Hunter Leigh, Head of GSW Esports, commented in a release: “Community impact is at the core of the Warriors’ company values. As we expand our charitable efforts this year and beyond, having a trusted partner in Softgiving to connect our fans to charitable opportunities will significantly increase our potential impact.”
Matt Pfaltzgraf, Founder and CEO of Softgiving, added: “Softgiving has always focused on engaging the gaming community to help nonprofits raise funds in creative ways. We know gaming brings communities together and we can’t think of a better reason to unite with the Golden Guardians than to help ensure Make-A-Wish brings their impactful experiences to these deserving kids.”
Esports Insider Says: This is a partnership which can only bring heartwarming and positive news to the esports community. Giving back to local communities is something that a sports organisation such as the Golden State Warriors would look to do often – so the esports branch matching that mentality is no surprise.
