San Jose-based online game publisher, Gamescampus.com today announced the results of its annual online ALS Charity Tournament for its popular online golf simulation game, Shot Online. The tournament ran from May 4th through May 14th on the challenging Sosori golf course. A total of 1,417 Shot Online players participated in the charity tournament to help aid the research to cure ALS.
GamesCampus donated $1 for every player who completed the entire 18-hole Sasori course in the Shot-Online game. In addition to the $1,417 donated for each player who participated in the event, the company also donated additional funds to provide a total donation of $2,000. All proceeds are being donated to the Driving 4 Life organization to benefit its ALS Therapy Development Institute and ALS research efforts. The Shot-Online charity event has been held annually since 2006 to remember a former player who passed away from ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease).
"We would like to thank everyone who participated in our annual Shot-Online ALS Charity Tournament," said Tony Liu, Producer of Shot-Online. "We are thrilled the event was again a tremendous success, and are happy to be contributing to the Driving 4 Life organization to help raise awareness and, most importantly, a cure for ALS."
