Guardian Con is coming, and fans of Apex Legends will get to see a charity showdown benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
What is Guardian Con?
GuardianCon is Florida’s premier gaming convention and charity event. It was founded years ago by a popular Destiny streamer, Ben ‘ProfessorBroman’ Bowman. Taken from the Guardian Con website, they say they are “a large community of like-hearted gamers coming together to make the world a better place. Grown at the roots in the Destiny community, we have grown and continue to grow the community, in hopes of creating a larger charitable footprint for years to come.” In 2018, Guardian Con raised a total of $2,851,866 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The charity event has already raised over $3.7+ million dollars this year through their marathon event, crushing heir goal of $3 million. The next big event for G.Con will be the Apex Legends Charity Showdown.
