The Wenatchee Valley College Foundation is partnering with Epoch to host a Rocket League game tournament on Saturday, March 11 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Epoch gaming lounge at 16 S. Wenatchee Ave. in Wenatchee.
The bracket-style tournament is open to all ages and will offer cash prizes for the top three teams. There will be 16 teams with two people per team. Rocket League is a vehicular soccer game released in 2015. It will be played on PlayStation 5. Registration is $25 per player. Register for the event at wvc.edu/foundation/events.
In addition, there will be a ticketed raffle for participants and attendees. Epoch will have their regular menu of food and beverages available for purchase.
“We are always looking for unique ways to increase the awareness of the WVC Foundation and the value we bring to the community,” said Rachel Evey, WVC Foundation executive director. “This event can help us build strong relationships with our student base, alumni and others in the community.”
This is the first time Epoch has partnered with a nonprofit for a tournament.
“In college, I formed bonds with roommates and classmates through a mutual enjoyment of playing games with each other. That is how communities are built, a love for common ground. Not everyone gets the opportunity to experience that,” shared Andy Lane, co-owner of Epoch. “My wife and I started Epoch with the desire to be a pillar of the community and what better way to build that community than helping the WVC Foundation invest in student success.”
