Panda Teams Up With Adorama to Raise Money for St. Jude

Panda Teams Up With Adorama to Raise Money for St. Jude

Panda and Adorama have done it once again! 

On January 31st, Panda’s event staff teamed up with Adorama, a leading creative-equipment provider in esports, to host the third iteration of their online tournament circuit, the “Adorama Charity Cup.” This time, the event featured Street Fighter V and was centered on the east coast (including a few central states as well). 

The designated charity for our third Adorama Charity Cup was St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Through the extremely generous donations of the FGC community, we were able to surpass our original goal of raising $1,000 and we were able to raise up to $1,136 through Tilitify

St. Jude has become a leading influence in expanding the survival rate of childhood cancer from 20% when they opened to 80% today. By raising a tremendous amount of money for St. Jude through our tournament, we were able to help ensure families get the support they need in order to help their children survive cancer.

The Adorama Charity Cup also had a wide array of amazing prizes and plenty of hype Street Fighter V matches. Those who placed within top five for the tournament earned some top level rewards, including an MSI Gaming Notebook Computer, BenQ gaming monitors, and plenty of WD_Black Swag Packs.



The tournament also featured an impressive lineup of top Street Fighter V talent. Including Panda’s own Victor “Punk” Woodley, Team RISE’s own Bryant “SMUG” Huggins, Endemic Esports’ Sean “Shine” Simpson, and many more. 

You can check out the entire tournament stream here on Adorama XP’s official Twitch channel! Spoiler alert: Grand Finals definitely had us on the edge of our seats.

We would love to congratulate our newly expanded event team for putting together another successful charity tournament! Many thanks to Panda’s own Jaaahsh and Chez for organizing the third iteration of the Adorama Charity Cup tournament series.
