Celebrating the life of Kevin “Sega Ages” Cronin

hangout_snapshot_0 Today is a celebration of our friend Kevin Cronin! Join us ether at the store or watch live online as we play through some of Kevin’s favorite systems and games. Please join us in remembering the Video Game Rescue podcast co-host, Kevin Cronin. Kevin passed away on Monday, 4/14/2014 at 2am of a heart attack. As Sega and Dreamcast were Kevin’s favorite systems, that’s what we will be playing in his honor. Donation will be directed to Kevin’s family to be used to pay for burial expenses. Please also see the GoFundMe page that will be used to pay for his services. Please spread the word–we would like to raise enough money to completely cover the funeral costs for his family. If you live in Jacksonville Florida and would like to game with us then head over to our store at 2415 Blanding Blvd #7 Jacksonville, Fl 32210. We do ask that you make a small donation of $10 before joining the game room. Raffle tickets will also be sold for $10 or three for $25


Sonic-Action52-auctionSee all of the items up for auction on VideoGameRescue’s GameGavel Page. We will have other items up for auction through out the day and will run for exactly one week. The idea is not get fair value for the games but to get much more over that. Remember these items are being auctioned off to help Kevin’s family with burial expenses. Notable items for auction
