The Hamilton Coalition Youth Team was fired up and ready for action last night at the first Video Game Night held at the Hamilton Movie Theater! As part of a brand new monthly event, Video Game Night featured unlimited play of Mario Kart, and a full scale, multi-player racing tournament. The Youth Team greeted gamers in the theater lobby with free t-shirts, backpacks and cool activities - with the help of their new friend, and honorary member of the team, a 5 ft Mario balloon! Mario and the team greeted Hamilton pedestrians and made sure everyone felt welcome.
The all new event targets teens and provides our Youth Team an opportunity to reach out to teens, offering prizes and giveaways while providing a prevention message. Our current campaign, “Game Over. #LivingDrugFree” targets marijuana misuse, and gives a free t-shirt to participating teens. Specific message ads are also played on the big screens prior to gaming reminding youth that they can have outrageous fun in safe and healthy ways.
Join us the first Tuesday of every month - $5 admission gives you unlimited gaming and a free small popcorn!
