Taft’s own eSports team is hosted a 12-hour Local Area Network (LAN) event at Taft on the 28 of April. The live stream gave Taft’s eSports team a chance to raise money for both the Extra Life4Kids foundation and the Lurie Children’s hospital.

Taft’s eSports coach Todd McFarlane had raised 1,700 dollars all by himself all last year in support of the same foundations.

“I was not sure what to expect from the students.  Many of them blew my mind with how much they raised by themselves,” said Mcfarlin.

McFarlane was proud of his players and the kids from the school getting behind the cause and supporting the fundraiser.

“To see the Taft students get behind this movement and for a great cause makes me feel so proud of our students and our school.  We are over halfway to that point, with the students raising $600 of that $1k total,” says McFarlin.

Taft’s eSports team plans on hosting another live stream in Nov. so that all of the new incoming Freshman get a chance of playing and raising money for the team. Taft’s eSports is growing popular throughout the school. Coach is excited to see what the team can accomplish this year with all of the enthusiastic young players coming in.
