"When you think of charity 'signature events,' it's usually races, walks and golf tournaments. Starlight wanted to do something innovative that reflects how people are having fun today. We learned that there are more than 85 million casual gamers in the US, a growing number of whom are women, 40 years and older. That's why we chose to design a national fundraising initiative around a casual videogame the whole family can play," said Patricia Evans, Vice President, Development, Starlight. "The Tuttles Madcap Misadventures gives anyone with Internet access the chance to have fun at home supporting our cause, without the typical barriers to supporting a traditional event, such as location, ticket price and hectic family schedules."
