Adventure Games teams up with Big Brother and Big Sisters

This year Adventure Games New Years Eve Pary/Fundraiser sends all proceeds to supporting youth

Adventure Games is inviting lakecity residents out to a fun, laid-back party/fundraiser for Big Brother and Big Sisters this New Year’s Eve.

Local entrepreneur and game enthusiast Bryton Kaufman provides the link between the two organizations. He is the proud owner of Adventure Games Inc. and the new Memory Den Virtual Reality Lounge and a Big Brother with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Williams Lake.

Christmas time has been good for his company, though Kaufman does attribute that also to being able to establish the business more firmly in the community consciousness through involvement in various events. Kaufman said they also hold and host weekly events and clubs for lakecity youth and gamers.

“We do a lot of community involvement, we get a million donation letters and we often try to give door prizes at our events for the charities we think will help the community the most,” Kaufman said.

This year at his New Years Eve Party/Fundraiser, Kaufman has decided to fundraise for Big Brothers and Big Sisters. Kaufman said that 100 per cent of all the proceeds from the night will go directly to the group.

“I’m a Big Brother with Big Brothers Big Sisters program and I think that’s a really good group,” Kaufman explained. “I try to do a fundraiser with them, once or twice a year if I can.”

As the organization does not receive any grants to supplement their funding, he says fundraisers like his own and donations from the community are what they primarily rely upon to keep operating.

Kaufman has found working with his own Little Brother through the program to be extremely rewarding, eagerly sharing classic movies like Lawrence of Arabia with him.

The New Year’s party begins at 8 p.m. on Dec. 31 running all the way until 2 a.m. on New Year’s Day. Entry is by donation, with a rotating capacity of 60, with $5 draft beer from Barkerville Brewery available throughout the night. Kaufman and several of his staff members are currently in the process of getting their special event and Serving it Right Permit, to ensure everything is above board.

Free pizza from Red Tomato Pies will also be available throughout the night as everyone is welcome, regardless of age.

It’s an all ages event,” Kaufman said. “The Serving it Right permit is just like a wedding right, anybody is welcome.”

Festivities for the night will be made up of socializing and games of Jackbox.TV, a mix of computer and mobile gaming. Using a code, Kaufman said, participants will be able to log on to the game on their phones and devices and play a variety of mini party games.

“It’s kind of like a Cards Against Humanity Style party game where you get to roast the other players,” Kaufman explained.

Kaufman hopes to match his earlier fundraiser for the organization, his grand opening of the Memory Den, which raised a $1,000 for them. He expects a lot of people to drop in and out throughout the night as they head onto other parties.

“If you like games and want to support something awesome it’s a great way to get involved with this community in Williams Lake all the awesome gaming people,” Kaufman said.

“It can be hard to find things to do in Williams Lake and I like to think we help fill that hole.”
