To help fight hunger during the Covid-19 pandemic, Esports District, a company started by teenagers Jack Lasky and Nick Starkman from Studio City, Calif., will host a national online 1 vs.1 Fortnite Tournament on April 25 benefiting Feeding America.
All proceeds from the tournament entry fees will be donated to Feeding America, a nonprofit organization that collaborates with farmers and food banks to provide food to those in need.
Tournament signup will begin at 8 p.m. PST on Wednesday, April 22 with a $25 entry fee. Sign up and register at TheEsportsDistrict.com.
Last year, Lasky and Starkman launched Esports District, an esports gaming lounge, where like-minded people of all ages come together to connect, play video games, and compete in esports tournaments.
