One of the event organizers, Elizabeth Bolinger, was on the River To River show with Ben Kieffer today on Iowa Public Radio. She was there discussing the Grassroots Gaming Expo. The topic of the show was Gaming in Iowa, and featured a teacher and students from the new Video Game Journalism class at the University of Iowa, Kimberly Wallace, an Iowa native that now works for the magazine, GameInformer, and Joe Helfenberger, the current President of the International Video Game Hall of Fame and Museum in Ottumwa, Iowa.

Our IndieGoGo fundraiser wrapped up this past weekend, and it was a huge success! It may have not met the goal we set, but we did raise some funds and it definitely helped to get the word out about Grassroots Gaming Expo!
