2014 Amtgard Food Fight Winner: Westmarch!

Posted by on Oct 1, 2014 in News

AND THE WINNER OF THE 2014 AMTGARD FOOD FIGHT KINGDOM CHALLENGE IS: The Kingdom of Westmarch with their combined tally of more than $71,000. Their rep took an innovative approach and truly embraced the concept of Amtgard Food Fight by partnering with local food charities to identify their needs and then went out soliciting for support to address those needs. The result was not only record-breaking, it was also very educational. KatnChains has already offered to provide some details on lessons learned and share her secrets. When Amtgard Food Fight started in 2009, we weren’t sure how far it would go. Sure, we shared “what ifs”. A few of us even dared to dream about what the future would look like. I’m not sure any of us thought it would be like this. 2014 proved to be another, in a long line, of amazing years. Against the odds and expectations, Amtgard managed to continue the trend of DOUBLING the previous year’s success. This year is especially sweet. Not only did Amtgard manage to break the $100K mark, it also reached the goal of 100% Kingdom participation. In 2012 we came close, however it took a last minute donation from an unaffiliated member to make a donation on behalf of a Kingdom to make it happen. This year we saw Food Fight embraced by EVERY SINGLE KINGDOM. We also saw at least half of the Kingdoms exceed their previous year’s success. Words can’t express how appreciative the Food Fight executive team is for everyone’s help and support. Hopefully everyone is able to take a moment and appreciate the level of impact that we had in our local communities. There’s no doubt that we have been successful in our goal of Motivation, Education and Donation! Please savor this moment and make it a point to thank the many Kingdom and local reps, as well as the countless other volunteers and sponsors that made this year so successful. Congratulations to the Mighty Kingdom of Westmarch (our first repeat winner) and thank you to everyone of you that made this year, and the previous six years so successful.

Amtgard Food Fight

Posted by on Aug 31, 2014 in News

With the start of September comes the Amtgard Food fight. The Amtgard Food Fight is a game-wide call for action to generate awareness through education, to motivate volunteerism, and to encourage and solicit donations for food charities local to Amtgard chapters. Food Fight encourages support towards a common goal and demonstrates the greater impact we can have when we all work together towards that common goal. To date, Amtgard has raised over $100,000 and countless volunteer hours towards its mission of education, donation and volunteerism. The result is a little over a million dollars worth of buying power and support for food charities across the country. 2014 will be the 6th year that Amtgard gets together to raise money and cans for local food banks, and the donations have more than doubled each year.
