Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley (RMHGHV) today announced it will be hosting their first ever GiveByGaming Video Game Tournament featuring Epic Games’ Fortnite, with prizing being provided by Turtle Beach Corporation.

Leading gaming accessory maker Turtle Beach Corporation will be donating $3,500 in prizing to be awarded to top scorers and fundraisers, including gaming gear from its best-selling and award-winning Turtle Beach and ROCCAT brands. “Although we’re a global brand, we’re excited to get involved in our local community and forge a partnership with RMHGHV which is located just miles away from our White Plains headquarters,” said Andrew Lilien, VP of Marketing, Turtle Beach Corporation.
