You’re Invited: Gamer Meet-Up at The GRID on November 18

Goodwill’s technology store, The GRID: Powered by Goodwill, is hosting a Gamer Meet-Up to celebrate one year of being at its current storefront location on Wilkinson Boulevard. We hope you’ll join us for this fun event!


Friday, November 18, from 5 – 7 p.m.


The GRID, which is located at The Goodwill Opportunity Campus at 5301 Wilkinson Boulevard in west Charlotte. 


To celebrate The GRID opening its current location one year ago, we’re hosting a Gamer Meet-Up. Gamers of all skill levels are invited to join – whether you’re an expert gamer or simply like a good Mario Kart battle every now and then, this event is for you!

  • We’ve rented a couple of NASCAR simulators from our local, professional e-sports team, The Charlotte Phoenix, that guests can try out for themselves.
  • We’ll also have a couple of retro gaming stations set up.
  • Guests can enter our raffle to win a variety of gaming prizes (including a gaming laptop, a gaming PC, and a PlayStation 4).
  • Stop by our merch table to get some free swag.
  • There will be a food truck on-site and other light refreshments available.
  • Guests are encouraged to bring games to trade with other guests.


The revenue we generate from selling donated goods at The GRID funds career training courses, job search support, family stability services and more – all of which we offer free of charge to thousands of people in our community each year.
