In this case, it is ok to cheat

Mission business, gamers help raise food, funds

For the sixth year in a row, the staff and game players at Mission’s Warcraft Games on First Ave., found a way to have a great time and collect food for those in need.

This year’s event was called WarHamper Foody “K” and the concept was simple. Customers came into the store to play a game, and win some prizes, but in order to play, they had to bring in a donation of food.

But that’s not all.

For every item they brought in, the customer was given a ticket that they could use to “cheat” during the day while they played Warhammer 40K.

The more food that you brought, the more you could cheat.

“I’m happy to say that we have a lot of generous cheaters in the Fraser Valley,” said one of the organizers.

The day-long event raised enough food to fill the back of an SUV as well as raising $280 in cash donations to various local charities.

UPDATE: Mission RCMP confirm that
