Gen Con 2014 was a hit at the turnstiles, but the hobby gaming convention also received plenty of support for its official charity partner, Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana.

With the help of a $20,000 donation from Mayfair Games’ Cones of Dunshire event, Gen Con was able to raise a total of $40,000 for Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana’s BackSacks program, which provides weekend food to hungry children.

“This is a proud moment for Gen Con,” Mayfair’s Chuck Rice said, “and Mayfair Games is thrilled to have played such a large part in giving a helping hand to a fantastic charity.”
