And The Kids Go Wild!

Last night was the annual Lights of Love Holiday party at the Ronald McDonald House of Long Island, and, just like last year, Nick’s Marathon came bearing gifts!

We had brand new video games for every system: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and the handhelds, 3DS and Vita. Of course, the whole “toys-to-life” thing is all the rage right now, so  we also came with Disney Infinity and Skylanders figures, as well as the Nintendo amiibos.

Needless to say, the kids were pretty thrilled!

The kids seemed to be most excited by Minecraft, NHL 15, and Super Smash Bros., which we know from extensive first-hand experience is a ton of fun to play with a group.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to catch all of the absolute pandemonium on video (our hands were pretty full when we walked in!), but this video gives you some sense of the reaction we got.

And here are some of our favorite pictures for good measure:
These pictures and video illustrate why we do what we do. The kids are ecstatic when they are playing video-games, and, even if it’s just for a little while, they get to forget about everything else. Nick knew that all too well, and as you can see, he isn’t the only one who feels that way.
Once again, we want to thank everyone who helped make all of this happen!
