Game On Against Cancer benefits patients in need at Thompson Cancer Survival Center. The event features celebrity matches on a variety of home gaming equipment, music, delicious food and beverages, and a fabulous selection of silent auction items!

Given that we are still dealing with the effects of the pandemic, the event is moving to the summer this year Friday, June 25th. By moving the event to a warmer time of year, our friends at The Wakefield Corporation will be able to host activities outside, as well as open the huge doors on both ends of the warehouse for plenty of air flow inside. We are committed to making Game On an enjoyable, comfortable, and safe environment for all our sponsors and guests.

Location: The Wakefield Corporation, 10646 Dutchtown Road • Knoxville, Tennessee
Admission: $50 per person • casual attire
Ticket price includes admission, unlimited free play, one celebrity match (additional matches available for $10 each), food, and a beer/wine token.

Game On Against Cancer’s proceeds support Thompson Cares, a fund that assists cancer patients in financial need with their basic living expenses.

In 2020, Thompson Cares assisted almost 800 cancer patients with life’s necessities such as transportation, utilities, medications, prostheses, housing, and more. These patients received over $71,000 in support. Your sponsorship will make a difference to patients far beyond their immediate crisis. In fact, it may mean the difference between having life-saving treatment or foregoing it all together. Thanks to the generosity of Game On sponsors like you, the event has raised more than $411,000 over the last nine years!
