What began as a meetup for a couple of Twitch broadcasters has evolved into a massive two-day community convention and force for charitable giving. GuardianCon, now entering its third year of operation, is a charity gaming event located in Tampa, FL. In 2016 the event raised over $560,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Activities range from a week-long broadcast marathon featuring various content creators, game developers, and community members to the convention show floor with artists, discussion panels, vendors, live music, gaming stations, PvP tournaments and much more.
