Tri-Cities Escape Game benefit for Gatlinburg disaster relief

December 05, 2016

In an effort to aid disaster relief efforts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee following the state’s worst forest fire event in more than 100 years, the Tri-Cities Escape Game is donating 100% of its profits from games played on Wednesdays in December 2016 to Tennessee disaster relief efforts.

“In light of such terrible devasation, this is a very small way that we can work alongside our customers and do something ‘good’ together that will directly benefit those who are in great need in Tennessee,”says David Crowe, owner of the Tri-Cities Escape Game.

100% of the profits received from games played on Wednesdays in December 2016 (Dec. 7, Dec., 14, Dec. 21, and Dec. 28) during regular business hours, will be given to Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) aiding disaster and victim relief efforts in Tennessee. SBDR relief teams are currently on the ground, working alongside the Red Cross, providing food, laundry services, clean-up assistance, and childcare to those recovering. More than 1,000 buildings were either damaged or destroyed within Sevier County and the Gatlinburg city limits. Most tragically of all, the death toll has climbed to thirteen.

At the conclusion of the month, the Tri-Cities Escape Game will use its social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIN) to publish the amount given.
