Three years ago, University of Rochester student Jeffrey Bordeaux was tragically stabbed and killed at a fraternity party. In his honor, the Jeffrey Bordeaux Junior Scholarship fund was organized to both remember Bordeaux and to support members of the community. To support the scholarship, a three-day gaming tournament will be held at A Gamer's Nostalgia. For $10, gamers and supporters will have unlimited access to next-gen systems like the XBOXONE and PS4, as well as vintage favorites from Nintendo and SEGA.
The Jeffrey Bordeaux Game-A-Thon is Friday, August 8, through Sunday, August 10, at A Gamer's Nostalgia (1350 Culver Road). On Friday and Saturday, the event will take place from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., and will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets cost $10, with proceeds supporting the Jeffrey Bordeaux Junior Scholarship. For more information call A Gamer's Nostalgia at 288-6118.
